about

Inspired by the book "The Cellist of Sarajevo" by Steven Galloway
Slight Irish flavor infused in this question about moral character

lyrics

n your darkest hour will you hang your head
Use solemn tones, cower and beg
For forgiveness
I don't know if it will save my soul
But I will turn up the music and dance 'til I go
The last distance
Heaven has got enough excuse makers they could use a couple more hip-shakers
These days

When the skies turn dry and the crops won't thrive
Will you lock up your storerooms, sell all your grain for a price
To your friends
I believe if I am blessed with more
I will set a big table, throw open my doors
Ask you in
This world has got enough deal makers we could use a couple more bread bakers
These days

When the lines are drawn and the flags are flown
In the name of what's right we will do so much wrong
In broad daylight
Time will come when you will have to choose
Do you care about something or just if you win or you lose?
The next fight
This world has got enough instigators we could use a couple more peacemakers
These days

This world has got enough muckrakers stirring up hatred in trouble makers
Selfish back-breakers and users and takers we could use a couple more peacemakers
These days
This world has got enough war makers filling up coffins of undertakers
Willing heart breakers and thieving dream takers we could use a couple more peacemakers
These days
