Wise won't be wise anymore
And might won't be might anymore
And I am waiting for the day when I will finally know surrender
And the weak will not be weak anymore

Lost won't be lost anymore
Hard won't be hard anymore
And I am waiting for the day when I will finally know surrender
And the weak will not be weak anymore

And I'll be waiting like a stranger for a train
For a headlight through the rain
I don't know the day or hour
But I can sense the final power

Yours won't be yours anymore
Theirs won't be theirs anymore
I am waiting for the day when I will finally know surrender
And the weak will not be weak anymore
No the weak will not be weak anymore

    General CommentI'm not really sure on the meaning, but this song is so good. I love the guitar, and I don't know why, but I really love the part when he says "headlight through the rain."

    General CommentI love this song too. It almost sounds as if he is waiting for the second coming of Christ (or at least the narrator in the song). The lines "I am waiting for the dy when I will finally know surrender," "I don't know the day or hour/ But I can sense the final power" lead me to think of that. There is a line about the second coming of Christ in the Bible that says he will come like a theif in the night and that no man will know the day or the hour. (1Thessalonians 5:2; Matthew 24:36). However, those verses speak of the second coming and the apocolypse. While the song speaks of renewal and peace. It reminds me of Isaish 40:31--that those who trust in the Lord will run and not grow weary, will walk and not grow faint. Like, he is not just waiting for the second coming, but for heaven. That's all I got :) But the song is called From a Pirate Radio Sermon

    General CommentPirate radio, if you've seen the movie, refers to a group of dudes who broadcast a "pirate" radio station during a time when Britain banned rock music. I'm not sure if this song refers to that or not, but it seems to fit given that it's about not giving up, etc. I'm not sure why 1989, though.
