this too shall be made right

from the ringing bell by derek webb.

people love you the most for the things you hate
and hate you for loving the things you can't keep straight
people judge you on a curve
and tell you you're getting what you deserve
and this too shall be made right
children cannot learn when children cannot eat
stack them like lumber when children cannot sleep
children dream of wishing wells
whose waters quench all the fires of Hell
and this too shall be made right
the earth and the sky and the sea are all holding their breath
wars and abuses have nature groaning with death
we say we're just trying to stay alive
but it looks so much more like a way to die
and this too shall be made right
yes there's a time for peace and there is a time for war
there's a time to forgive and a time to settle the score
a time for babies to lose their lives
a time for hunger and genocide
and this too shall be made right
oh i don't know the suffering of people outside my front door
and i join the oppressors of those i choose to ignore
i'm trading comfort for human life
and that's not just murder it's suicide
and this too shall be made right
oh this too shall be made right


from derek, in the liner notes:
"I wholly support and encourage the free distribution and consumption of music. Please share this record."
