Rise Against- Help Is On The Way Lyrics

I have my mother’s dreams,
I have my father’s eyes,
You can’t take that from me,
Just go ahead and try.
The crescent city sleeps,
While giants in the sky,
Preparing to unleash,
Let loose a mighty cry.

Can nobody save us?
Will anyone try?
The pyre is burning,
The cypress has died.
And all along they’re saying.

Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
One by land, two by sea.
Right there in front of me.
Help is on the way.

Five thousand feet below,
As black smoke engulfs the sky,
The ocean floor explodes,
Eleven mothers cry.
My bones all resonate,
A burning lullaby,
You can’t take that from me,
Just go ahead and try.

She stands at the shoreline,
With hands in the air,
Her words pierce the dark night,
Does anyone care?
And all along they say it.

Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
One by land, two by sea.
Right there in front of me.
Help is on the way.

Right here! Right here! [x3]

Choking on the black gold,
Upon which we rely,
We keep axes in the attics,
To see cameras in the sky.

Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Help is on the way
(They said, they said)

We were told just to sit tight,
Cause somebody will soon arrive.
Help is on the way.
But it never came!
It never came!

Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
One by land, two by sea.
Right there in front of me.
Help is on the way.
On the way.

    I believe this is more accurate:

    I have my mother’s dreams
    I have my father’s eyes
    You cant take that from me
    Just go ahead and try

    The crescent city sleeps
    While giants in the sky
    Preparing to unleash
    Let Loose a mighty cry

    Can nobody save us?
    Will anyone try?
    The pyre was burning
    The surface is dying
    And all along they’re sayin’

    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    One by land
    Two by sea
    Right there in front of me
    Help is on the way

    Five thousand feet below
    As black smoke engulfs the sky
    The ocean floor explodes
    Eleven mothers cry

    My bones all resonate
    A bloody lullaby
    You cant take that from me
    Just go ahead and try

    She stands at the shoreline
    with hands in the air
    Her words miss the dark light
    Does anyone care
    And all along they’re sayin’

    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    One by land
    Two by sea
    Right there in front of me
    Help is on the way

    Right here, Right now!
    Right here, Right now!
    Right here, Right here!

    Choking on the black gold
    Upon which we rely
    we keep axes in the attics
    To see cameras in the sky

    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    We were told
    Just to sit tight
    Cuz somebody will see a light

    Help is on the way

    But it never came
    It never came

    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    Help is on the way
    (They said, they said)
    One by land
    Two by sea
    Right there in front of me
    Help is on the way
    On the way
