Heaven Knows

I often come up with ideas for songs to post on the blog while listening to my iPod while walking my dog in the early morning. I hadn’t heard this song in a LONG time and the lyrics really hit me in the face because they seemed so relevant and I could only shake my head and think “Wow, that’s powerful! WHEN was that written?”  The answer: 2006.  Sigh.

“Heaven Knows”

The homeless is still homeless, the poor is still poor
Yet we find billions of dollars to fund senseless wars
And yes, we’re fighting terrorism, what about the quiet racism?
Divided among ourselves, somebody’s crying for help

Chorus:
Heaven is listening (Listening)
Heaven is watching (Watching)
Heaven knows (Knows)

And they may not play this on the radio
‘Cause the devil don’t want you to know
If we don’t stop the hypocrisy
The nation will lose it’s soul
They’d rather play music about money and sex
Like we don’t have no intellect
Somebody need to show some respect
‘Cause God ain’t through with us yet

Chorus

Heaven knows,  heaven knows the preachers that’s not preachin’
And heaven knows the teachers that’s not teachin’ (Knows)
Heaven knows the politicians are stealing
Heaven knows, heaven knows the ones that are out there killing
Oh, heaven knows that the world needs a revival (Heaven knows)
That we’ve walked away from the Bible (Knows)
Heaven knows that the world needs healing (Heaven knows)
That somewhere we’ve lost our feelin’

Chorus (3x)

  1. I’ve got to give credit to Samson Verny who introduced me to this fine artist many moons ago. He does from very good stuff!
