Sophie B. Hawkins The Land The Sea And The Sky Lyrics

Money will talk for you

Coats your tongue like sugar

Sweet lies

To pacify the hunger

Money will kill for you

Lay your head to rest now

Dream of the whitest street

Clean, rebuilt for you

We’re headed for big trouble

Brewing in the rubble

I won’t bow to evil

I won’t stoop to your injustice

You robbed the greatest people of the earth they rose their children on

And I am grateful I am in this country now

But I will never forget the land and the sea and the sky

I come from

You never fenced me in

My spirit gives you chills and

Sweeping your desert like the wind

Nations gather for a reckoning

You may be deaf but every rock and tree is listening

I won’t bow to evil

I won’t stoop to your injustice

You robbed the greatest people of the earth they rose their children on

And I am grateful to be in this country now

But I will never for get the land and the sea and the sky

I come from

Come on and give us a truthful tongue

We’ve got to make a peaceful mission from now on

I am thankful for the choices I have now

But we’ve got to protect the land and the sea and the sky

We come from.
