Celebration Day - Lyrics

Her face is cracked from smiling
All the fears that she's been hiding
And it seems that pretty soon
Everybody's gonna know

And her voice is sore from shouting
Cheering winners who are losing
And she worries if their days are few
And soon they'll have to go

My, my, my, I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band
We are gonna dance and sing in celebration
We are in the promised land

She hears them talk of new ways
To protect the home she lives in
Then she wonders what it's all about
When they break down the door

Her name is Brown or White or Black
You know her very well
You hear her cries of mercy
As the winners toll the bell

My, my, my, I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band
We are gonna dance and sing in celebration
We are in the promised land

There is a train that leaves the station
Heading for your destination
But the price you pay to nowhere
Has increased a dollar more
Yes, it has

And if you walk you're gonna get there
Though it takes a little longer
And when you see it in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan
