If you start to think that it's all over now
That the work you have done has been lost somehow
You wake up hungry in this world you've made
So much so how could you be turned away

Under thunder we drove through a black sky,
Paved with the threat we might die, oh we were so afraid
You can throw your body up against the glass but you can't stop the rain
From pouring in once the cracks have been made

But there's still time to sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Who could stay sleepin' when that garbage man came?
He stormed up the street 'cause we called out his name
With the sounds of us choking on the mess that's been made
Dig us out from this slumber

We've given salt, we've sweated off, done all this and more
So heed when you hear us knockin' on your door
We don't want to be the currency gets spent on war
And then come home wondering what was it all for

That's no way to sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

We been hard hard working
We've got a plan
Send home dollar bills

And fistfuls of honey
We've been working working for that money
