Lyrics

Verse 1

Hanging from heaven
A black mother’s son
Strung up by believers
All washed in the blood

Pre Chorus 1

They sleep like babies
Cause their god allows
A boy in the branches
To placate the crowd

Chorus

Hear the church bells ring
Injustice is being done
Behold the lynching tree
God loses another son

Verse 2

The children play under
The boy as he sways
The shepherd is leading
The sheep as they prey

Pre Chorus 2

They sleep like babies
No sign of remorse
Just like a pale rider
Who rides a pale horse

Chorus

Hear the church bells ring
Injustice is being done
Behold the lynching tree
God loses another son

Bridge

Give us peace
Open up our eyes
To what we cannot see
Give us peace
Nothing but the truth
Within us sets us free

Bridge

Give us peace
Open up our eyes
To what we cannot see
