lyrics

Sleep with my Fists Clenched Tight

They talk to me, talk about marching
forward motion
diseases cured
improved standards of living

I speak to them, I speak of essence
lands taken over, religions smashed
ways are wiped out

Sever the chains that binds me to you
fall deeper and deeper
fading from view

They throw facts at my face
mileages of roads and railroad tracks
I mention millions of men torn from their gods, their lives
from life, from the dance
I said

Sever the chains that binds me to you
fall deeper and deeper
fading from view

II: We have been taught to tremble
we have been taught to kneel :II

Sever the chains that binds me to you
fall deeper and deeper
fading from view

Sever the chains that binds me to you
They balance the books
fall deeper and deeper
fading from view
I sleep with my fists clenched tight
