lyrics

The proud and the pious marching
For religion or their own name
They cry for fear's destruction
But I'm trembling all the same

My brother is in the gutter and
My sister is in the news
The silent are neglected and
The loudest are abused

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
I hope you're listening

I see the banners waving
As the 'just' take up the cause
Behind the silver curtain I can hear
The devil sharpen claws

The crowd starts to gather and
Emotion's running high
I hear the swords drawing
I can see it in their eyes

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
I hope you're listening

I hope you're listening
All my friends listening
All my enemies listening
All the sinners listening
All so called righteous listening
All politicians listening
All the beggars listening
Is anyone listening?

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
I hope you're listening

I won't pretend to be righteous
I'm a beggar with my own sin
But for all your words of understanding
Is anyone listening?
