Better Way Lyrics

Yeah, Yeah
Ohhhhh
Let my people go
Ohhhhh
Let my people go

In the swamps of New Orleans
The rain came pouring down
... of the water
That the walls came crashing down
Now I know a survivor
But how the hell you justify
Leavin' a hundred thousand people in water that high
Just struggling for their lives

I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
And we gotta find it
Gotta find it
Gotta find it

Politicians are screaming
They say we gotta raise up a war
So many people are dyin'
And we ain't even sure what for
Is it because he's a muslim
Tell me is it democracy or is it the oath
It's in the news every day one paycheck away
And the president's on the golf course

I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
And we gotta find it (We gotta stand together)
Gotta find it (Or we gon' fall apart)
Gotta find it (We gotta find it)

Sweet butter crawdad
Delta bread hot pepper
Sold ____ sold out
Lifestyle was taken before they found out what life was all about

He's a genius with the lyrics
Started young sippin' syrup
And it hurts me to my soul
The way he drinks away the pain
The world's gonna lose him
Another unsung hero

We gotta find it
We gotta find it
We gotta find it (We gotta find it)
We gotta find it (We gotta find it)
We gotta find it (Hey)
We gotta find it

See the children on TV
It's become a sign of the times
Glorifying their bodies
Something just don't feel right

Still we keep pretending
That boys and girls are men and women
We watch it and we call it entertainment
And everything's okay, long as somebody's gettin' paid

I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
And we gotta find it
Gotta find it
Gotta find it
