Artist/Band: Indigo Girls
Lyrics for Song: Jonas And Ezekial
Lyrics for Album: Rites Of Passage [1992]



i left my anger in a river running highway five

New Hampshire Vermont border by

college farms, hubcaps, and falling rocks

voices in the woods and the mountains tops

i used to search for reservations and native lands

before i realized everywhere i stand

there have been tribal feet running wild as fire

some past life sister of my desire



jonas and ezekial hear me now

steady now don't come out

i'm not ready for the dead to show its face

whose turn is it anyway?



when i was young my people taught me well

give back what you take or you'll go to hell

it's not the devil's land you know it's not that kind

every devil i meet becomes a friend of mine

every devil i meet is an angel in diguise



jonas and ezekial hear me now

steady now and don't come out

i'm not ready for the dead to show its face

whose turn is it anyway?



white chain rope fear be still my dear

a bullet in the head now he's dead

a friend of a friend someone said

he was an activist with a very short life

i think there's a lesson here he died without a fight

in the war over land where the world began

prophecy says it's where the world will end

but there's a tremor growing in our own backyards

fear in our heads fear in our hearts

prophets in the graveyard



jonas and ezekial hear me now

hear me now steady now don't come out

i'm not ready for the dead to show its face

whose turn is it anyway?



jonas and ezekial hear me now

steady now i feel your ghost about

i'm not ready for the dead to show its face

whose angel are you anyway?
