  1. Story 8: "Bad News"

From the album 12 Stories

Lyrics

Whom shall I call? Whom shall I send?
My people just talking smack all over again.
Isaiah, I call you.
The rich forsaking the poor, and that won't do!

I got bad news you don't want to hear:
You will lose when Assyria draws near!
I'm bringing bad news, but the promise is true:
I still see the David light in you.

It's like a fire inside your bones.
You just can't keep my words inside your mouth.
Jeremiah, I call you. What happened in the north is heading south!

I got bad news you don't want to hear:
You will lose when Babylon draws near!
I'm bringing bad news, but the promise is true:
I still see a David light in you!

A valley of dry bones...
Ezekiel, I call you to call them home.
Scattered people, come on out of your graves.
La da da da - they laughed when you fell.
Scattered people, there will come a new day
La da da da - when I shepherd you myself.

Do you still remember the glory days
with David on the throne, my Jerusalem!
My Servant suffers now,
until I bring 'em home, until the end...

And my bad news you don't wanna hear,
You will lose when Assyria draws near.
I'm bringing bad news you don't wanna hear,
You will lose, Babylonia draws near!
Go and tell them: Bad news! The ending is near!
You will lose when the empire draws near.
I'm bringing bad news, but the promise is true:
I still see the David light in you!

Whom shall I call? Whom shall I send?
My people just talking smack all over again :-/
