Moving On

This song is by Oysterband and appears on the album Holy Bandits (1993).

We walked these streets together
Now we walk these streets alone
We asked the man for justice
Well, he handed us a stone
In this great land of freedom
We are taking up the slack
We pushed the stone to the top of the hill
And we watched it rolling back

And the way to Hell is straight and sure
The way to Heaven is long
The way to your heart is never-ending
So I just keep movin' on
Movin' on, movin' on
The way to your heart is never-ending
So I just keep movin' on

The brave are twisting in the wind
Stupidity endures
And men with no identity
They try to borrow yours
Danger is the lure for boys
To help you now and then
But they fall from the wire in a Bay of Pigs
And don't come round again

I never felt myself alone
Or truly felt afraid
Until the hour I understood
By friends we were betrayed
Whose precious mouths are stopped with food
Who cannot meet our eyes
Who laugh about their principles
And brush 'em off like flies
