Rage On

Lyrics: Mickey Hart
Music: Mickey Hart, Ben Yonas, Crystal Monee Hall, Dave Schools, Giovanni Hidalgo

A new song introduced by the Mickey Hart Band in May 2013.

As the war rages on, missiles fly-y-y-y-y
And the children cry, but why oh why oh why
I hear death's music coming from the sky-y-y-y-y
As the heaven's split with thunder by its side-y-y-y-y

A luminous ether in my eye-eye-eye-eyes
The smell of napalm makes my city cry-y-y-y-y
Give me courage, give me courage, give me courage, through the night
Give me courage, give me courage, give me courage, through the night
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on

The battle's over, I look up to the sky-y-y-y-y
I see fine open clusters as the sky slithers by-y-y-y-y
But in my heart, there is a glow, as clouds of fire, the cruel winds blow
But in my heart, there is a glow, as clouds of fire, the cruel winds blow
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on

There is no illusion, there is no kindness
There is no option, there is no mercy
There is no daylight, there is no daydream
No life supreme, no life supreme
Rage on

Give me courage, give me courage, give me courage, through the night
Give me courage, give me courage, give me courage, through the night
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
Rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on, rage on
The lyrics on Mickey Hart's website have some addirional verses, not in the version on Superorganism:
When I close my eyes, I dream
Beautiful raindrops from the sky

The ground shook hard beneath my feet
The ground is quaking, our hearts keep breaking

Our sons and daughters, magical heat, inner light
