They say that they don't know me
 Never saw my face
And if they've never been there 
Can they be sure there's such a place 
They think if they don't answer 
The world will pass them by
But there's a fire in their kitchen
And the water's three feet high and risin'

My beloved 
The only one I see standing up for me

Someone's shouting at me
You're all going to hell
Must not be too far away
 Sometimes I can never tell
My shoes are still as empty 
A mile they never walked
Send in their donation
And they never have to talk again 

My beloved 
The only one I see standing up for me
My beloved  Close my eyes heal my pride 

I just want to show them who I am
I just want to show them what I can do
There's not much use to curse the damned 
And there's power in nothing to lose

Someone's spitin' blood 
Face down in the dirt
Someone's thinking about a gun
To try and stop the hurt
 Someone drew conclusions 
On the wall of destiny 
Someone's getting louder
And that someone would be me

You think if you don't answer 
The world will pass you by
But there's a fire in your kitchen 
And the water's three feet high and risin'
