Salvation in Your Arms

Salvation In Your Arms

I saw it in the eyes of the hungry
I saw it in the spirit of the broken
In the neglected breath of the living dead
On the streets, in hospitals choking
I heard it in the words of the poets
And in the songs of a lost generation
I smelled it on the petals of a white rose
Crushed underfoot of brainwashed soldiers of domination

And I found salvation in your arms
I found salvation
I found salvation in your arms
I found salvation
I found salvation

I heard the evangelist on T.V. trying to preach it
I heard the promise of a government man and I watched him breach it
I read it in the Times and the Washington Post when they tried to create it
And I signed petitions on the college campus saying we hate it
I heard it from the tongues of voices silenced by the guns of a foreign nation

But I found salvation in your arms
I found salvation
I found salvation in your arms
I found salvation

Written on the walls by a skidrow drunk trying to deface it
I saw it in the violence of a cop trying to erase it
I saw it in the gestures of a jester in his quest to disgrace it
I saw it in the flames of a revolution destined to replace it
I saw it in the eyes of a people sworn to die
Or else embrace it
And I found salvation

I saw it in the midnight moon peering over the clouds
To the shelter of the morning
And I found salvation in your arms
I found salvation
