It's coming through a hole in the air,
From those nights in tiananmen square.
It's coming from the feel
That this ain't exactly real,
Or it's real, but it ain't exactly there.
From the wars against disorder,
From the sirens night and day,
From the fires of the homeless,
From the ashes of the gay:
Democracy is coming to the u.s.a.
It's coming through a crack in the wall;
On a visionary flood of alcohol;
From the staggering account
Of the sermon on the mount

Which i don't pretend to understand at all.
It's coming from the silence
On the dock of the bay,
From the brave, the bold, the battered
Heart of chevrolet:
Democracy is coming to the u.s.a.
It's coming from the sorrow in the street,
The holy places where the races meet;
From the homicidal bitchin'
That goes down in every kitchen
To determine who will serve and who will eat.
From the wells of disappointment
Where the women kneel to pray
For the grace of god in the desert
