Revenge

The Mission

Janis Ian/Kye Fleming

"Jesus saves" up in neon lights
Lines are forming to the right
for a blanket, a bed
Shelter against the night

Young men sleeping away their dreams
Old newspapers 'round their feet
They were someone's child once,
just like me

There's no place like home
Inside these walls,
safe from the cold,
another night falls
What's mine is mine
So I've been told
There's no place like home

Some claim victory, some downfall
Some can make no claim at all
Bad breaks, high stakes
Alcohol

The streets are crowded with vacant eyes,
stripped of privacy and pride
How long can only the strong survive

There's no place like home
Inside these walls,
safe from the cold,
another night falls
What's mine is mine
So I've been told
There's no place like home

Give me your poor
Your tired, your hungry
All weary people
who yearn to be free
I give them hope
and mercy to all those in need
...Have mercy on me
