Song Lyrics

Smoke curled from the embers of the fire
With respect for the dawn the beach was quiet
When God tried to smile
It’s a good day to live or die

I live where the Earth meets the sky
In the violence of the hurricane I ride the eye
I live inside
I travel in dream-time

Look what you’ve done to the blood of the Earth
Look how you’ve changed the balance
Look at the desecration of my church
You’re morally bankrupt and blind
While your children pay for your crimes

I’m gonna ride, baby
I’m gonna ride
I’m gonna ride, baby
The tongues of angels, the tongues of angels
All the way to heaven

I’ve done my penance in Babylon
Among the tribes I organized
We stood side by side fighting the righteous fight
Hard fought victories won in vain
The new leaders learn from the old ones and do the same
They’ve lost The Way
That’s why nothing changes

I see without looking
And I feel without touching
And I know without thinking
When I feel confused and lost
I come back to the source

I’m gonna ride, baby
I’m gonna ride
I’m gonna ride, baby
On the tongues of angels, the tongues of angels

I’m gonna ride
I’m gonna ride, baby
I’m gonna ride, baby
On the tongues of angels, the tongues of angels
All the way to heaven

Smoke curled from the embers of the fire
Proud soldiers once unified
Fighting for the scraps of power
In the city’s final desperate hour

I live where the wind meets the sand
Waiting for the holocaust where life began
If I’m called I will return
But I’m not gonna watch it burn

I find without searching
I hear without listening
I know without thinking
After there’s no tears left to cry
I will choose the way I die

I’m gonna ride, baby
I’m gonna ride
I’m gonna ride, baby
The tongues of angels, the tongues of angels

And I’m gonna ride, baby
I’m gonna ride
I’m gonna ride, baby
The tongues of angels, the tongues of angels
The tongues of angels, the tongues of angels
All the way to heaven
