Who Will Answer

Original and similar lyrics
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!, Hallelujah! From the canyons of the mind, We wander on and stumble blindly Through the often-tangled maze Of starless nights and sunless days, While asking for some kind of clue Or road to lead us to the truth, But who will answer? Side by side two people stand, Together vowing, hand-in-hand That love's imbedded in their hearts, But soon an empty feeling starts To overwhelm their hollow lives, And when they seek the hows and whys, Who will answer? On a strange and distant hill, A young man's lying very still. His arms will never hold his child, Because a bullet running wild Has struck him down. And now we cry, 'Dear God, Oh, why, oh, why?' But who will answer? High upon a lonely ledge, a figure teeters near the edge, And jeering crowds collect below To egg him on with, 'Go, man, go!' But who will ask what led him To his private day of doom, And who will answer? (Chorus) If the soul is darkened By a fear it cannot name, If the mind is baffled When the rules don't fit the game, Who will answer? Who will answer? Who will answer? Hallelujah! Hallelujah!, Hallelujah! In the rooms of dark and shades, The scent of sandalwood pervades. The colored thoughts in muddled heads Reclining in the rumpled beds Of unmade dreams that can't come true, And when we ask what we should do, Who... Who will answer? 'Neath the spreading mushroom tree, The world revolves in apathy As overhead, a row of specks Roars on, drowned out by discotheques, And if a secret button's pressed Because one man has been outguessed, Who will answer? Is our hope in walnut shells Worn 'round the neck with temple bells, Or deep within some cloistered walls Where hooded figures pray in halls? Or crumbled books on dusty shelves, Or in our stars, or in ourselves, Who will answer? (Repeat Chorus Below) If the soul is darkened By a fear it cannot name, If the mind is baffled When the rules don't fit the game, Who will answer? Who will answer? Who will answer? Hallelujah! Hallelujah!, Hallelujah!

Back To The Middle

India
Back To The Middle She is, twenty five, spent over half of her life So afraid to speak her mind, it's such a shame ‘Cause what a brilliant mind she has Chorus And now that she's been introduced to confidence She doesn't see, that she is bordering on arrogance When will she learn, to come back to the middle He is, a young black man, grew up without his father And now it falls into his hands, to protect his mother ‘Cause if he doesn't, well then who will, his older brother he lives in fear Of everything, especially, trying to fill his father's shoes Chorus Respectively, they go to extremes, of masculine and feminine Chasing dreams, but they keep on falling ‘Cause they don't know no balance When will they learn, to come back to the middle You gotta take the good with the bad, and you might hit the wall Sometimes you'll fly and sometimes you will fall There ain't no way, to avoid the pain But it's getting burned, that's how you will learn To come back to the middle Chorus Needing to protect your self now that is just a part of life If you let your fears keep you from flying, you will never reach your height To get to the top you must come back to the middle When will we learn, to come back to the middle Come back to the middle, Come back to the middle Don't make no mind about falling down ‘Cause it's when you're in that valley You can see both sides more clearly Come back to the middle India Arie - Blue

Cold Wind

JOHN BUTLER TRIO "Flesh & Blood"
Cold wind it blows Blowing through like Sunday morning Chills my bones, take me home, take me home Home is where the heart is, but my heart's been truly stolen Cold wind it blows, wind it blows Fire in my gut Reminding me that yes I'm in a Great big rut, great big hole, great big hole No one knows, can tell me where those chains begin Fire in my gut, in my gut, in my gut There are places you will never go And there are things that you will never know It all depends on which side of the road Hole in my soul Makes me feel like I am floating Far from my place, I got no land, I got no face Tell me Mr. what's a man supposed to believe in? Hole in my soul, in my soul, in my soul There are places you will never go And there are things that you will never know It all depends on which side of the road Gun in my hand You're tellin' me that I'm meant to obey Laws of your land, of your land, of your land But you don't follow rules of the silly games you play So gun in my hand, in my hand, in my hand There are places you will never go And there are things that you will never know It all depends on which side of the road [x2]

Ask

Ball In The House
Verse 1: So many times when I lost my faith You picked me up without falling a step behind And when you tested the way and it wasn't safe I held your hand all the way to the other side And know I'm standing right in front of you And I can see all the fear behind your eyes You have this moment to live as you wanted to To shrug off a world of saving lies Chorus: I know we don't know the road We're all we've got, story's told And I will always be there by your side I will give you my life It's only real when you're in it And everything that you want Just say the word and I'll begin it There's no reason to cry Now that we've come here at last And if you want everything I have All you have to do is ask Verse 2: You'll never know if you're lost or saved Until the miles have passed and the days have gone You'll never pull yourself up from the walls you've raised Unless you climb to the top and look out beyond And now I'm standing right in front of you And all the fear has fallen down We have these moments to live as we wanted to To step out from the shadows on the ground Chorus Bridge: Don't be afraid of what's behind you You don't have to wait ‘till every door is closed There's never a right way or a wrong one There's just a road less traveled You're not alone I will be with you I will give you my life (Chorus with added lines) I will give you my life And anything you want I will give you You're my world Don't Cry Oh, and if you want everything I have All you have to do is ask Just ask me now, come on now, come on now girl, come now, yeah

Thought Conditioning
