lyrics

This bus driver gave me my ticket for free
He said kid I only want to hear you sing
But black men sat next to me
They saw right through my fleece, so instead I sung to these

A phone call bore us to the desert heat
But Grace brought the refugees
That a town rejected understanding
Shma’i Ba’kadesh Elohiem

Mercy wasn’t made for the blameless
Oh somebody lift your voice for the hopeless

Out here on the border of Israel
The soldiers have all trained themselves well
Kalotchneekov echoes
I hope they didn’t hit their mark
But the shots come out after dark
And I know my friends weren’t innocent
I’m not either but I’m still living
Oh oh oh with the evidence

And I know mercy wasn’t made for the blameless
Oh somebody lift your voice for the hopeless

Now I’ve just rang my little bell
The one about the Jews and the exiles
How mercy broke that evil spell
But if you were listening I couldn’t tell
