Black bird with a broken wing
Is on the side of the freeway
The preacher says "Don't worry"
But he won't fly away (Oh, glory)
Lights flash, sirens scream
A Mardi Gras procession
Everyone's in trouble
When everyone prays

When all the people raise fists in the air
Cry out in anger for things to be fair

When I pray "have mercy"
I will never ask for justice

Dark night in my soul
I scale the walls of doubt
In a cage of faith
And there's no way out
In these days of unknowing you
I stand so close to alone
But I will not stand
For their black parade

And all the people raise fists in the air
Cry out in anger for things to be fair

When I pray "have mercy"
Last thing I would ever want is justice
When I pray "have mercy"
I pray that I will never ask

And all the people raise fists in the air
Cry out in anger for things to be fair
When all the people I hear everywhere
Cry out in anger for things to be fair

When I pray "have mercy"
Last thing I would ever want is justice
When I pray "have mercy"
I pray that I will never ask (for justice)
