lyrics

Here the land never lies fallow
Production rolls incessantly
The top soil is getting shallow
We're forced to do what we hate, yet we still think we're free

Machines, fear and whips keep us toiling
There is no rest for the weary
The only way to counteract this, is
The Sabbath must be kept Holy.

ONE TWO THREE FOUR FIVE SIX REST

Seven times 'round
Seven times 'round
For the sky and the sea and the blood soaked ground
The jubilee rhythms beginning to pound
God's way comin' through on the seventh time round

How long til this bondage is over?
It's been way more than 49 years
Debt release is a mandate from heaven
Then help us to break these chains and dry each other's tears

If Cain is avenged sevenfold over
Then let us forgive seven times more
And as we march round the walls of oppression
On the seventh ring we'll shout down Jericho's door

Fire in the bowls of the angels
How will the curse finally be undone?
The thunders of seven fight kings--Armageddon!
And down, down, down falls Babylon.
