Congregation

Album: Sonic Highways (2014)
  • Well, I met the seventh son
    He came for everyone
    The day he heard the lighting in the field
    I heard him clear his throat
    A fork within the road
    That night the Tallahatchie took the wheel

    I've been throwing knives
    To see just where they land
    Now my world is in your hands

    Send in the congregation
    Open your eyes, step in the light
    A jukebox generation
    Just as you were

    The voice upon the stage
    Is the heart inside a cage
    And they're singing like a bluebird in the round
    There's mystery in this wood
    And ghosts within these roots
    That are tangled deep beneath this southern ground

    I've been going through life
    Making foolish plans
    Now my world is in your hands

    Send in the congregation
    Open your eyes, step in the light
    A jukebox generation
    Just as you were

    And you need blind faith
    No false hope
    Do you have blind faith?
    No false hope
    Where is your blind faith?
    No false hope
    Open your eyes, open your eyes
    Step into the light
    Open your eyes, step into the light
    The sound becomes

    Congregation
    A congregation
    A congregation, yeah
    And they're singing like a bluebird in the round Writer/s: Christopher Shiflett, Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Oliver Hawkins, Pat Smear
