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 cypresses has said
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 alone 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 actions 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

    "help is on the way!!! ". Or so the government says.
    I think this is about aid to international or foreign (even domestic) problems. The help is promised, but it never comes. The promises to send help end up being empty promises and people are left to suffer alone.
    This isn't supposed to be a rant on the government, but that's just the way I see it. It tells of the true issues the government has about making empty promises to people and not following through.
