I was once some mother's darlin
some daddy's little girl
more precious than the ruby
more cherished than the pearl
my heart was full of mercy
and my forehead full of curl
now i am nothing and am lost unto this world
i am lost unto this world...

they herded me like cattle
cut me down like corn
took me from my babies
before they could be born
you can blame it on the famine
you can blame it on the war
you can blame it on the devil
it don't matter anymore
i am lost unto this world...

i was tortured in the desert
i was raped out on the plain
i was murdered by the high way
and my cries went up in vain
my blood is on the mountain
my blood is on the sand
my blood runs in the river
that now washes thru their hands
i am lost unto this world...
can i get no witness this unholy tale to tell
was God the only one there watching
and weeping as i fell

o you among the living
will you remember me at all
will you write my name out
with a single finger scrawl
across a broken window
in some long forgotten wall
that goes stretching out forever
where the tears of heaven fall
i am lost unto this world...

My baby needs a shepherd
She's lost out on the hill
Too late I tried to call her
When the night was cold and still
And I tell myself I'll find her
But I know I never will
My baby needs a shepherd
She's lost out on the hill

My baby needs an angel
She never learned to fly
She'll not reach sanctuary
Just by looking to the sky
I guess I could have carried her
But I didn't even try
My baby needs an angel
She never learned to fly

Oh I ran so far through a broken land
I was following that drummer
Beating in a different band
And somewhere on the highway
I let go of her hand
Now she's gone forever
Like her footprints in the sand

Toora loora loora lo
First the seed and then the rose
Toora loora loora li
My kingdom for a lullaby

My baby needs a pilot
She has no magic wand
To help her part the troubled waters
Of the Rubicon
But in my soul I know she'll
Have to go this one alone
After all that is only way she's ever known

But there is no lamp in all this dark
That could chase away her shadow
From the corners of my heart
I pray she's ride a dolphin
But she's swimming with the shark
Out where none can save her
Not even Noah and his ark

Toora loora loora lo
To the cradle comes the crow
Toora loora loora li
My kingdom for a lullaby

My baby needs a mother
To love her till the end
Up every rugged mountain
And down every road that bends
Sometimes I hear her cryin'
But I guess it's just the wind
My baby needs a mother
To love her till the.

(Knowledge is power)

Sometimes it gets so hard to listen
Hard for me to use my eyes
And all around the gold is glistening
Making sure it keeps me down to size

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love

(Knowledge is power)

I'm waitin' for the planes to tumble
Waitin' for the towns to fall
I'm waitin' for the cities to crumble
Waitin' till I see you crawl

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love

And yes it's getting hard to listen
Hard for me to use my eyes
And all around the gold is glistening
Making sure it keeps us hyp-n-o-tized

I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know a thing about evil
Only wanna know about love
I don't wanna know 'bout evil
Only wanna know about love...
All of this misogyny is making me nostalgic for treason

And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings
This he said to me
"The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return"
