A Prayer For England

A Prayer For England

Massive Attack

In the name of, and by the power of
The holy spirit
May we invoke your intercession for
The children of England
Some of whom have seen
Murder so obscene

Some of whom have been taken
Let not another child be slain
Let not another search be made in vain
Jah forgive us for forgetting
Jah help us, we need more loving
You see the teachers are representing you
So badly that not many can see you
Let not another child be slain
Let not another search be made in vain

Jah calls the ones whose
Beliefs killed children to
Feel the love of you and be healed
And may we all cry too
For representing you so badly, so badly

Jah forgive us for forgetting
Oh Jah help us to be forgiving
The teachers are representing you
So badly that not many can see you
Let not another search be made in vain
Let not another child be slain
