Some born high, some born low
Most born minutes from some war
So rob from the rich not the poor
What is sown in tears we gonna reap in joy

I'll be 'neath the canopy
I'll be 'neath the canopy
I'll be 'neath the canopy
Cuz we're breaking our backs everyday

Sworn in a world so violent
Where the meek weakness cause the rich profit
Will we ever end this apocalypse?
Poverty pitted against affluence

I'll be 'neath the canopy
I'll be 'neath the canopy
I'll be 'neath the canopy
Cuz we're breaking our backs everyday

There will be rest for the weary
There will be drying tearing eyes
There we'll see him in his glory
There will be no crying, weeping eyes

Not beneath the canopy
Not beneath the canopy
... Be 'neath the canopy
Where we see him in all his glory

If they're worth dirt while we hoard gold
Makes america the greatest ghetto
Between those who have and those who don't
Cuz some born high and some born low
It's like fire, this class structure
When it's hot on the wire, bring heat to some
By burning down all the others
Well the walls holding water
Should soon rupture, extinguishing division
Crush competition and unbound all the borders

There will be rest for the weary

Beneath the canopy
Beneath the canopy
Beneath the canopy
Cuz we'll see him in all his glory

Sworn in a world so
Torn in a world so
Born in a world so violent
Thrown in a world so
Grown in a world so
Scorn in a world so
Born in a world so violent
Born in a world so violent
