THERE'S A RISING IN THE PEOPLE

TO WAGE A PEACEFUL LIFE

THE HIGHWAY AND THE STEEPLE

FOR A GOOD MAN AND HIS WIFE

 

TWO HEARTS MAKE A RHYTHM

AN ENGINE-ROOM OF SONG

AT THE BOSOM OF HIS WOMAN

WHERE LOVE CAN DO NO WRONG

 

WE ALWAYS HAVE EACH OTHER

TO LIFT EACH OTHER UP

TO LIVE ABOVE THE HUNGER

STILL THIRSTING FOR THE CUP

 

HE LIVES ABOVE THE CITY

WHOSE HEARTBEAT QUICKENS DAWN

IT IS NO PLACE OF PITY

IN THE COLD LIGHT IT IS GONE

 

ON THE SURFACE PEOPLE SCRATCHING

FOR THE PURCHASE OF THE DUST

SCRATCH DEEPER & THEY'RE WATCHING

FOR THE REAPER IN THE RUST

 

OTHERS WALKING THRU THE WALLS

IN THE COMPANY OF ANGELS

SWEET FORGIVENESS IN THEIR SOULS

TO WELCOME ANY STRANGERS

 

HE LIVES ABOVE THE CITY

WHERE LOVE CAN DO NO WRONG

THIS IS A PLACE FOR PITY

EVERY HEARTBEAT IS A SONG

 

AND IT'S ONLY WHEN YOU'RE BROKEN

UNBURDENED BY YOU'RE PRIDE

YOU CAN SING OF WHAT'S UNSPOKEN

WITH NOTHING ELSE TO HIDE

 

AND HE LIVES ABOVE THE CITY

AND LOVE CAN DO NO WRONG

THIS IS A PLACE FOR PITY

EVERY HEARTBEAT IS A SONG
