underground light

underground light

Someday we’ll get it right
Brothers and Sisters in the long hard fight
Someday we’ll get it right
Me and my baby and the underground light

All across this country, systems breaking down
Politicos and bankers spread the hurt around
They’re running tabs and power grabs, big money machines
Strip-mine my future, for black gold, counterfeit dreams

There’s a vibe going round, something in the wind
I swear there’s a party, dying to begin
I’ll bring my broken lyrics, you bring your petty crimes
I’ll meet you in the moonlight, step outside the lines

Someday we’ll get it right
Brothers and Sisters in the long hard fight
Someday we’ll get it right
Me and my baby and the underground light

It’s strip malls and robo-calls, world full of spin
Seems like all those answers
Still blowin’ in the wind
Oh…Tom Sawyer, Road Warrior
Time to take a stand
Leave a strip of rubber
On the conscience of our land

Someday we’ll get it right
Brothers and Sisters in the long hard fight
Someday we’ll get it right
Believe in the power of the underground light

Big divide, rising tide of hunger and heat
Climate change, hard rains
Signs of defeat
But the sun always rises, never retreats
The dream never dies
Just takes to the streets

Someday we’ll get it right
Brothers and Sisters in the long hard fight
Someday we’ll get it right
Me and my baby and the underground light
