Matisyahu - One Day

Sometimes I lay 
Under the moon 
And thank God I'm breathing 
Then I pray 
Don't take me soon 
Cause I'm here for a reason 
Sometimes in my tears I drown 
But I never let it get me down 
So when negativity surrounds 
I know some day it'll all turn around 

Because 

All my live I've been waiting for 
I've been praying for 
For the people to say 
That we dont wanna fight no more 
They'll be no more wars 
And our children will play 

One day
One day
One day
One day
One day
One day

It's not about 
Win or lose 
Because we all lose 
When they feed on the souls of the innocent 
Blood drenched pavement 
Keep on moving though the waters stay raging 
In this maze you can lose your way (your way) 
It might drive you crazy but dont let it faze you no way (no way) 

Sometimes in my tears I drown 
But I never let it get me down 
So my negativity surrounds 
I know some day it'll all turn around 

Because 

All my live I've been waiting for 
I've been praying for 
For the people to say 
That we dont wanna fight no more 
They'll be no more wars 
And our children will play 

One day
One day
One day
One day
One day
One day

One day this all will change 
Treat people the same 
Stop with the violence 
Down the the hate 
One day we'll all be free 
And proud to be 
Under the same sun 
Singing songs of freedom like 

One day
One day

All my live I've been waiting for 
I've been praying for 
For the people to say 
That we don't wanna fight no more 
They'll be no more wars 
And our children will play 

One day
One day
One day
One day
One day
One day

Dispatch - The General

There was a decorated general with a heart of gold, 
that likened him to all the stories he told
of past battles, won and lost, and legends of old a seasoned veteran
in his own time

On the battlefield, he gained respectful fame with many medals
of bravery and stripes to his name
he grew a beard as soon as he could
to cover the scars on his face
and always urged his men on

But on the eve of a great battle
with the infantry in dream
the old general tossed in his sleep
and wrestled with its meaning
he awoke from the night
just to tell what he had seen
and walked slowly out of his tent

All the men held tall with their
chests in the air, with courage in
their blood and a fire in their stare
it was a grey morning and they all
wondered how they would fare
till the old general told them to go home

*Go now you are forgiven*

He said: I have seen the others
and I have discovered
that this fight is not worth fighting
I have seen their mothers
and I will no other
to follow me where I'm going

So,take a shower, shine your shoes
you got no time to lose
you are young men you must be living
Take a shower, shine your shoes
you got no time to lose
you are young men you must be living
go now you are forgiven

But the men stood fast with their
guns on their shoulders not knowing
what to do with the contradicting orders
the general said he would do his own
duty but would extend it no further
the men could go as they pleased

But not a man moved, their eyes gazed straight ahead
till one by one
they stepped back and not a word was said
and the old general was left with his
own words echoing in his head
he then prepared to fight

*Go now you are forgiven*

The General is a song by the rock band Dispatch released in July, 1998.
