You will be moved when the baby lets out his very first cry 
You will be moved when you think of how hard he'll have 2 try 
He'll grow up on an empty stomach, but he'll try his best 2 listen 
2 the teacher readin' from a schoolbook with half the pages missin' 

Surely when the rain comes, you will be moved 
La da da da da 
See the video 

You will be moved, and you will be when the baby makes all the grades 
You will be moved, and you will be when they still don't hire him anyway 
Moved by a system without one single guarantee 
That an education is the answer and love will set us free 

Oh, you will be moved when the rain comes, oh yes, you will be moved 
When the streets overflow with angry souls, that's when you see the truth 
When the pain that u've inflicted comes back on your door 2 roost 
(back on your door 2 roost) 
That's when you'll see the future (future), but you won't see you 

You will be moved when the whip comes down 
On the back of one of your own 
You will be moved when you look 4 compassion 
But you find you're all alone 
Moved, and you will be 
When you are, that's when you'll know 
That the bread you share is better than the blood 
That your deeds have caused 2 flow 
(that the bread is better than the blood) 

Hey, you will be moved when the rain comes, oh yes, you will be moved 
When the streets all flow with angry souls, that's when you'll see the truth 
When the pain that you've inflicted comes back on your door 2 roost 
(back on your door 2 roost) 
That's when you'll see the future (future), but you won't see you 

I said surely when the rain comes, you will be moved 
La da da da da (la da da da da) 
See the video 

Hey, surely, surely, surely (when the rain comes) 
Surely y'all 
Ow, la da da da da
