lyrics

long white coat
don’t you make no joke
got the medicine in hand
but she can hardly stand
it ain’t her fix
no none of your tricks
she’s been used and abused
raped and confused
stepped on like garbage
on the concrete streets
left by the guests
in her holy guest house
left by the guests
in her holy guest house

we are barely listening
we are barely listening

in the shadow of the building
can’t see the sun
tide between the walls
there’s nowhere to run
hear the clock in the hall
losing the beat
beggars bare their wounds
like meat on the streets
and the flags of freedom
they whip in the wind
built on the towers
of original sin
built on the towers
of original sin

we are barely listening
we are barely listening

the wheels keep spinning
in the patterns of the past
gotta let the skin die
before the new one can last
there are cracks in the frame
of this temple of freedom
got God on our money
a future to believe in
as leaders of the world
line up like enemies
mother’s crying, mother’s crying
they’re nowhere to be seen
mother’s crying, mother’s crying
they’re nowhere to be seen

a thousand red flags burning in the face
a thousand red flags what will it take

feel the fire now
feel the fire now
don’t you wait
don’t you wait
we ain’t got time
we ain’t got time

we are barely listening
we are barely listening
