lyrics

Voodoo land
©Lyrics by Dov Hammer Music: Andy Watts

Mama told papa pack up man
We're moving to the Promised Land
Just as soon as we hit these shores
They promised us peace and the welcome was war

Chorus:
Living on the shifting sands – down in voodoo land
Everyday you make a stand – down in voodoo land
Say goodbye say a prayer
Sing of hope talk despair
It's a wild ride to live down here
down in voodoo land


Grew up in a city of stone
Holy mountains and a valley of bones
They call it a land of milk and honey
Honey is milked by the men with the money
The prophets rage on, the kings ignore
Covet all they see always taking more
There's a storm blowing in, a change in the weather
Heads are rolling in the eastern deserts

Chorus:
Living on the shifting sands – down in voodoo land
Everyday you make a stand – down in voodoo land
Say goodbye say a prayer,
Sing of hope talk despair
It's a wild ride to live down here
down in voodoo land

The rules are changing, troubling signs
Better think twice don't speak your mind
Going to war over god and land
Dangerous times for a logical man

Chorus:
Living on the shifting sands – down in voodoo land
Everyday you make a stand – down in voodoo land
Say goodbye say a prayer,
Sing of hope talk despair
It's a wild ride to live down here
down in voodoo land
