lyrics

I was born into this city/where the grindstone meets the heart/where the broken meets the pretty/and your mind is torn apart/And heaven don't wait for the dead to come knockin'/I've seen women in the welfare lines/ripped from the columns of the New York Times/And I've seen the blood of a 3rd World child that/stained the hands of a 1st World Private/serving in the military murder machine/where you think what you're told/and never say what you mean/And I've felt god in the pulse of a cloud/and the sex of the world as we spin around/So dance with me/and kiss me/I was born into this city/where the grindstone meets the heart/where the broken meets the pretty/and your mind is torn apart/So dance with me/and kiss me/Heaven don't wait for the dead to come/Heaven don't wait for the dead to come/Heaven don't wait for the dead to come knockin'/
