lyrics

Rock and rollers, raise your hands
The President wants to join your band
He’s only played for a year or two
But he’s already so much better than you

I’m no prophet
I’m no sage
But it don’t take one to feel all your rage
I’ve heard speeches for nights
But I built that stage
So hand me the mic
Turn the lights on bright
And I’ll show you all how freedom rings

I got one dead arm and one dead leg
But I’ll keep dragging both until I’m dead
I don’t long for pity
I don’t need revenge
No, like a captain might
Who has lost his fight
But been saved while his great love sank beneath
I pray:

Fire fire ocean liner
It’s okay to sink my dear
Someday, one day, I’ll be with you
Feel no pain now
Feel no fear

One June twilight
I strolled through the neighborhood where I met you
I looked into our window
Where a family moved the air we shared

And as I watched what I almost had
I dreamt the stripes came off that flag
And wrapped their arms around my back
And lifted me so high
That I had to try
To reach the stars they’d tried to flee

I saw all the friends I’d ever have
Oh, the land stretched out like Pharaoh’s hand
And though I knew I’d never understand the plan
There wasn’t one thing I saw beneath that sky
That made me give up on my peace
I prayed:

Fire fire ocean liner
It’s okay to sink my dear
Someday, one day, I’ll be with you
Know that I am marching towards you
Chanting the last words I told you
Feel no pain now
Feel no fear
Feel no pain now
Feel no fear
