Where Are You?

Nacido Libre Music (ASCAP)

I’ve seen fire and rain/ And I’ve been to the moon/ I’ve seen death it makes old ladies cry

I’ve seen hunger/ Felt pain/ Their lives ended to soon/ I searched for you just to ask you why

I’ve seen murder and rape/ And Dr. King’s gone/ I’ve seen suffering all around

Heard the cries of the meek/ I’ve seen evil prevail/ And you were nowhere to be found

Chorus: Where are you?

I looked in the churches/ And looked in the mosques/ No temples, no shrines were you found

I found cheats and found thieves/ Found war and sacrifice/ In synagogues you weren’t around

You killed Malcolm and Gandhi/ You took them away/ And Lennon/ you saw to that too

Many more have fallen to your “merciful hands”/ I’ve seen the things they say you do

Chorus

Take my tired/ Take my huddle masses/ Lead me to your promised land

Why must we suffer in this life?/ I simply do not understand

I’ve seen fire and rain/ and I’ve been to the moon/ I’ve seen death it makes old ladies cry

I’ve seen hunger/ Felt pain/ Their lives ended to soon/ I searched for you just to ask you why

I’ve seen murder and rape/ And good men are gone/ I’ve seen brown bodies fall to the ground

Heard the cries of the meek/ I’ve seen evil prevail/ And you were nowhere to be found

Chorus
