And it Goes

Coming down from the crater where the chapel lies

Where the holy dove dropped the bomb

Where the voices of the people who were singing round the steeple

Felt like poison burning in the sky

And they go on and on together

Their TV preacher says he speaks for God

Said there’s war to be made

A queer soul to be saved

I can still hear the deafening applause

 

But in the masses I can hear the whisper

And I’m trying just to hum along

Let the earth go on and feed its bigotry and greed

I can still hear that still, small song

 

And it goes

I won’t be lied to and I won’t be held down.

In the silence, it’s gonna sound so loud

 

Oh my brother they’ve laid you down

Hear the heart above break for the heart on the ground

In the marchers’ cadence make the mighty hear the sound

The silent savior started singing now

 

And it goes

I won’t be lied to and I won’t be held down.

And in the silence, it’s gonna sound so loud

 

And I heard that song

From the halls of power through that crippled dawn

And I heard that song

I am aching now but I won’t be for long

 

And it goes

I won’t be lied to and I won’t be held down.

And in the silence, it’s gonna sound so loud.
