Rainbow Warrior

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Rainbow Warrior

 

 

When I was young and my heart was strong

I heard a whisperin' voice say, Hey, hey Its time to be movin' on

The day I turned fifteen Thats the day I found my dreams

Thats the day I weighed my load Thats the day I hit the road

My old leather shoes are worn Ive been out here for a while

Ive been riding out the storm and Im riding out in style

 

Theres a shadow on the land I have felt it in my dreams

It can't be seen or held in hand but some have heard the silent screams

From the highest mountain tops to way down in the citys corridors

You can hear the cry and prayer of the Rainbow Warriors I Love You

I am a Rainbow Warrior I Love You

We are the Rainbow Warriors

 

You got to live with what you do, so do whats right for me and you

Yesterdays burnings are the same thing, as tomorrows acid rain

Maybe you think Ive been livin' wrong Ive been on the road a little bit too long

If you spend just one day in my shoes youd be singin' the Rainbow Blues too

 

In a book I had seen, about a war between the Grey and the Green

These words keep running through my head

The price of freedom is two hundred thousand dead

Maybe ten million more two hundred thousand dead

Maybe ten billion more two hundred thousand dead

 

In a house by the ocean where the mental lepers live

All they ask is blind devotion, but I think thats more than I can give

There stands the wizard with the television eyes

If you listen to his wisdom you gotta listen to his lies

For the rest of your lives

You gotta listen to his lies

You gotta listen to his lies

 

When I was young and my heart was strong

I heard a whisperin' voice say, Hey, hey Its time to be moving on

The day I turned 15 Thats the day I found my dream

Thats the day I weighed my load Thats the day I hit the road

Ive been out here for a while My old leather shoes are worn

Im goin' out with a smile and Im riding out the storm

 

Hey, hey hey Im riding out the storm

Hey, hey hey Im riding out the storm

Hey, ho ho Im riding out the storm

 

Rainbow Warrior ride Keep riding out the storm

Rainbow Warrior ride Keep riding out the storm

Rainbow Warrior ride Keep riding out the storm

Rainbow Warrior ride Keep riding out the storm

Rainbow Warrior ride Keep riding out the storm
