lyrics

Freedom tries to slip away
Like water through a net
And the folks with the dough make bigger holes
That somehow keep us pinned

Now it doesn't take a tailor
To mend what they've undone
But it will take a little courage
To make them reap what they've sown

I have seen some things that make me want to cry
They're gonna pay us what they owe
They're gonna pay us what they owe

Moses was a wise man
But he couldn't know the rules
Until God himself gave down the stones
To pass amongst the fools

Now preacher man he wrings his hands
And preaches 1 through 10
The crowd drops stones for sins atoned
And quietly he rakes it in

I have seen some things that make me want to cry
They're gonna pay us what they owe
They're gonna pay us what they owe
