Ambling Toward the Unknown 10

Lyrics > Ambling Toward the Unknown 10

JACKSONVILLE

I
MY NAME’S JOSIAH GIBBS…I LIVE AT 28TH AND LEIGH
MY STORY’S THE SAME AS YOURS… (‘THOUGH) YOU MAY NOT KNOW IT
I LOVE MY WIFE AND KIDS…I’M HOLDING DOWN TWO JOBS
MY FIGHT TO LIVE MY LIFE…IS NEVER ENDING

CHORUS 1
…(YET) THEY TOOK MY VOICE AWAY…SO HARD FOR ME TO SAY
…(CAUSE) I LOVE MY LAND AND THE WORDS OF OUR FOUNDATION

…THEY THREW AWAY THE KEY…AND CHANGED THE PASSWORD CODE
THE RULES HAVE CHANGED…THE COURSE OF OUR SALVATION
II
I FOUGHT THE FIRST GULF WAR…TOOK THE PRESIDENT AT HIS WORD
CAME HOME TO START MY LIFE…IN OUR LAND OF FREEDOM
I DREAM OF A WORLD RENEWED…AS I HOLD MY PLACE IN LINE
THE STRUGGLE NEVER ENDS…HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

REPEAT CHORUS

INTERLUDE
THEY HIDE THE TRUTH BEHIND THE WORDS
BELIEVE WHAT YOU HEAR…IF YOU CHOSE
A STRICT CONSTRUCTION DOES NOT APPLY
YOU HAVE TO DIG DEEP…TO FIND THE LIES

III
AMBASSADORS AND POTENTATES…ARRIVE BY PRIVATE PLANES
IN THE LAND OF SUNSHINE…TURNED TO DARKNESS
…WAR OF WORDS IS ON…TRAVELING UP THE EASTERN COAST
THE SILENCE IN OUR FAIR CITY…IS ALMOST DEAFENING

REPEAT CHORUS

IV
ABC AND CNN, NBC AND CBS
AIMED THEIR CAMERAS AWAY…FROM OUR DARK FACES
REPUBLICAN’S SUPPRESSED…WHILE THE DEMOCRATS IGNORED
MEANWHILE THE FIGHT GOES ON…OUR SIDE IS LOSING

REPEAT CHORUS

INTERLUDE
