Lyrics



Up ahead in the distance I can hear the cannon blast

Questioning, “Who killed the king?”, still echoing from the past

Freedom rings, the bullet slings – shot out into the night

“Baby’s Dead”, the headline read. Who’s gonna stop the fight?

Let the lightening flash, and let the thunder rumble

Let it burn the flesh of the proud and humble

Let the earth take its turn and burst at the seams

in my Redemption Dream

Who cares if Armageddon’s coming?

We lit the fires and started running

Just like the children who carry the blame

Who brought the mission burning down in flames

Throwing stones, are you stepping on a crack?

Oh no, your mama, she can never take you back

into the womb. The brake was clean

In my Redemption Dream

How many days? How many nights?

How many souls? How many lives?

We take the chain and break the chain

in my Redemption Dream

When does the nightmare stop?

When does the dream begin?

Go ask the street vendor, “Hey, when does the fruit stop rotting?”

The prince of peace was overthrown by a seductive king

The olive branch when, the dove was slain,

Washed away down stream

Take the chain

and break the chain

and make a change

In my Redemption Dream
