EARLY SONGS HOLD A TORCH UP IN THE SHADOWS OF FAME GOSPEL BRIDGE DA WRAG SILLY-SLY SONGS


From HERE
to
JUBILEE


From Here to JUBILEE

You lie there, in opulent splendor,
Watching your money, like a vulture set to dive
As your computer buys and sells for you
Living your life on one big, long bender,
Taking the honey from the very best bee hive,
Thinking your future's surely well-to-do

I lie here in this card-board condo
Inches above a dirty sidewalk gutter
Wond'ring why I want to trade hells with you
Wond'ring if I'm already gone, 'tho'
I still see the dove aloft, its wings a-flutter
I'd rather have this chance to tell you true:

If I had one thought to share
with everybody living
We'd no longer mock being truly free
I'd toss all I'd sought to see us care
So much for giving
That we'd stop the clock for a Jubilee

Jubilee, singing Jubilee, You can be, you can be free
Singing Jubilation, Jubilation
Jubilee, singing Jubilee, It is time to heed our destiny
Let us heal the nation, heal the nation

You may fear I'm mistaken
Fools suffer fools like nobody living can
I'd rather be breaking bad spells with you
When we sing of Love, Spirit awakens
Tyrants cannot rule, confusing you is their plan
I'd rather be ringing glad bells with you
The Jubilee is celebrating life
In all creation, nothing is foreign to love
The beast of the number shall be tamed
We shall find our way beyond the strife
Healing the nations, in the spirit of the dove
When we count every letter of the Name

So, take a good look inside
Where Love lies deeply hidden
It will enable you to truly see
Now, what is there left to hide
That is still forbidden?
Let's put it on the table, come the Jubilee

Jubilee, singing Jubilee, You can be, you can be free
Singing Jubilation, Jubilation
Jubilee, singing Jubilee, It is time to heed our destiny
Let us heal the nation, heal the nation
Jubilee, singing Jubilee, You can be, you can be free
Singing Jubilation, Jubilation
Jubilee, singing Jubilee, It is time to heed our destiny
Let us heal the nation, heal the nation
heal the nation, heal the nation
