Lyrics

THE EDGE OF MADNESS
words by Grace Slick
music by Michelle Mangione

WHO WILL HEAR OUR STORY WHO WILL SEE THIS HELL
WHO WILL BRING US JUSTICE TELL ME WHO WILL

AT A RAILROAD STATION IN BATON ROUGE THERE’S A TRAIN TO CRESCENT CITY
BOURBON STREET KEEPS CALLING HIM BACK TO A CAJUN GIRL SO PRETTY
OLD MEN SIT OUTSIDE THE BARS AND TELL STORIES THEY CAN’T FORGET
SONGS FLY UP TO THE EVENING STARS ON DISTANT CLARINETS
BUT NOW HE SEES THE SORROW AND THE ANGER OF THE CROWD
AND SHE’ SAYS “RISE UP FOR TOMORROW, STAND TOGETHER CRY OUT LOUD”

WHO WILL HEAR OUR STORY WHO WILL SEE THIS HELL
WHO WILL BRING US JUSTICE TELL ME WHO WILL
WHO WILL SOOTHE THE SADNESS HELP US HEAL OURSELVES
ON THE EDGE OF MADNESS TELL ME WHO WILL

FLOWERED WROUGHT IRON BALCONIES INCENSE HANGS IN THE AIR
PEOPLE DANCE TO THE CREOLE BEAT THERE’S MAGIC EVERYWHERE
HE CAN ALMOST HEAR THE BLUES SOUND DOWN AT THE TREME
THE ZYDECO AT THE FAIS DO DO UNTIL THE LIGHT OF DAY
BUT STILL HE SEES THE SORROW AND THE ANGER OF THE CROWD
AND SHE SAYS, “RISE UP FOR TOMORROW, STAND TOGETHER, CRY OUT LOUD”

WHO WILL HEAR OUR STORY...
