Immigrants - Dance of the innocents

Lyrics > Immigrants - Dance of the innocents

DANCE OF THE INNOCENTS

I watch the dance of innocents
It’s taken up space in my brain
Those red haired girls are full of woe
Tears falling from their eyes like rain
I’m full of rage…my heart feels pain….
For the exiles from a foreign land
Will they ever smile, again?

I hear the songs of sorrow
Right down to the pit of my soul
Emerald boys can’t lift their heads
Misery forced their hearts to roam
I’m full of rage….my heart feels pain…
For the banished from a foreign land
Will they ever smile, again?

Chorus
No more milk and honey…oh-oh-oh…no more land to graze
No valleys so dear to my heart … I’m naked, i can barely breath
The tyrant’s heel is on my neck …I’m gazing at his blood stained hand

Damn the cur—sed strangers…they’ve come and took my land
The land of promise is in my sights…we can only wait and see
The land of promise is in my sights…we can only wait and see

I feel the plague of loneliness
I’m unseen in a crowded room
I serve to please the Brahmin’s needs
In a house just shelter not home
I’m full of rage…my heart feels pain…
For the homeless from a foreign land
Will they ever smile, again?

Chorus

New Haven, March 2009
