T

The Land of Plenty (vom Album: Ten New Songs)

Don't really have the courage

To stand where I must stand

Don't really have the temperament

To lend a helping hand

Don't really know who sent me

To raise my voice and say:

May the lights in The Land of Plenty

Shine on the truth some day.

I don't know why I come here,

Knowing as I do,

What you really think of me,

What I really think of you.

For the millions in a prison,

That wealth has set apart

For the Christ who has not risen,

From the caverns of the heart.

For the innermost decision,

That we cannot but obey -

For what's left of our religion,

I lift my voice and pray:

May the lights in The Land of Plenty

Shine on the truth some day.

I know I said I'd meet you,

I'd meet you at the store,

But I can't buy it, baby.

I can't buy it anymore.
