John Coltrane – Vigil lyrics
Our father thy will be done.

I have denied this life its worth
I will not be the victim.
Sickness to you my master
Here's to getting worse
Hope it kills you faster.

Show me how it hurts to rot from the inside out.
This vigil burns until the day our fires overtake you.
Our father we forsake you.

Blessed be his name
Nothing now the same.

Ask me why I hate
Why I've prayed to see the nation that I loved disintegrate
And gladly give my life
That revolution regenerates.

In honor of the strife of those who've died
In generations before your blood stained glory
I reject you
I deny you
I defy you to continue.

I defy you to continue.

In honor of the strife of those who've died
In generations before your blood stained glory
I reject you
I deny you
I defy you to continue.

Smite the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered
