It's another night in hell Another child won't live to tell Can you imagine what it's like to starve to death
And as we sit free and well Another soldier has to yell Tell my wife and children I love them in his last breath
C'mon now amen, amen, amen
Habitual offenders, scumbag lawyers with agendas I'll tell you sometimes people I don't know what's worse Natural disasters or these wolves in sheep clothes pastors Now damn it I'm scared to send my children to church And how can we seek salvation when our nations race relations Got me feeling guilty of being white But faith in human nature, our creator and our savior, I'm no saint But I believe in what is right
C'mon now amen, amen I said amen, amen
Stop pointing fingers and take some blame, Pull your future away from the flame Open up your mind and start to live Stop short changing your neighbors Living off hand outs and favors, and maybe Give a little bit more than you got to give
Simplify, testify, identify, rectify And if I get high stop being so uptight It's only human nature and I am not a stranger So baby won't you stay with me tonight
[INSERT JAPANESE TRANSLATION]
It's a matter of salvation from them patience up above, So don't give up so damn easy on the one you love, one you love Somewhere you got a brother, sister, friend, grandmother, niece or nephew Just dying to be with you You know there's someone out there who unconditionally, religiously, loves you So just hold on 'cause you know it's true And if you can take the pain And you can withstand anything, and one day Stand hand in hand with the truth
I said amen, I said amen I said amen, I said amen,

Phil from Neenah, WiThis song has a really powerful message to me, much like John Lennon's 'Imagine'. In fact, this song closely resembles Lennon's 'Imagine' so much that I had bought this album right after I had heard and seen the video for this song on tv on the same day, if not the day after. Kid Rock really stepped up and hit it big with this song. I'd say he should keep it up and stay on the same route this song is on.
Crystal from Warren, PaI love this song
Brian from Vancouver, CanadaKid rock is very talented. I dont beleive this is his best song though. Blue jeans and a rosary and roll on off of ROCK N ROLL JESUS i think were better, same with only god knows why and cowboy from devil without a cause. Still an amazing song though.
