lyrics

KINTAMPO ROAD

Trade your gold for my Christ
Empty chalices line
The streets where my God's supposed to be
And the methods are madness
The grapes are all wrath
And the wine was lost south of the sea

Trade the fruits of this world
For the soil of another
Water please me my inequities
'Til with our tarnished hands, friends
We'll till 'til we're dead
And our garden is finally pristine

I've been waiting for a light for a life for a dream
For a hand I can let go, my melody echoes
E cho, I've been waiting for thee

Said the mime in the glass to the faces that pass
Look at all of you hiding in screens!
All you need is a touch and a Luddite foray
And a day for to dance in the streets!
So he shouts
To the highway beneath
We're in debt we have hearts to unharden
Ain't we so much the same
In our passing car rage
Breathing diesel and spitting out carbon?

I've been waiting for a light for a life for a dream
For a hand I can let go, my melody echoes
E cho, I've been waiting for thee

Tear your books from the shelves
Drain the watering wells
Where a lonely bird weeps to the fishes
Out damned spot! Out damned spot!
Asleep my wakeful heart
My purpose and fear torched and quenched
And it's here

And I've been waiting for a light for a life for a dream
For a hand I can let go, my melody echoes
E cho, I've been waiting for thee
I've been waiting and -

Brother, sister
Oh- how the brushfires burn out Kintampo Road
How the dusty spires and the lightened load
Show me just how far I've yet to go
Brother, sister
Oh- where electric wires hang limp and low
Bringing power to the people
But the stars and the steeples-
They're all I need.
