Melting Pot (c) 2009 marta jasicki

Fire spreading through the woods
Just outside the neighborhood
Burning up the trees and the majesty.

A bright red glow stains the sky
People pretend but we all know why
Burning up the past
Burning up memories.

Burning, burning
Burning up the dream.

Yeah, fire spreading through the land
Ain’t no water left for man
Burning up the earth, burning up the sea.

Run for your lives it’s getting hot
This is the cry of the melting pot
Burning up hope, burning up history.

Burning, burning
Burning up the dream
Burning, burning
Burning up the dream.

Forgive us, Lord, for our sins
Give us one more day and we’ll make amends
One more day, one more day and you’ll see.

Yeah, we promise, Lord, to make the change
Let your tears wash it away
One more day, one more day to breathe.

One more day
One more day to be
One more day
One more day to dream.

Just one more day to get it right
One more day, one more day to lie
Just one more day to get it right
One more day, one more day to lie.

Yeah, run for your lives, it’s getting hot
This is the cry of the melting pot
Burning up the land, burning up the sea.

Forgive us, Lord, for our sins
Give us one more day to make amends
One more day, one more day, you’ll see.

One more day
One more day to be
One more day
One more day to dream.

Just one more day to get it right
One more day, one more day to lie
Just one more day to get it right
One more day, one more day to lie.

One more day, one more night
One more day, one more day to lie
One more day, one more night
One more day, one more day to lie.
