    Lyrics

    Something moves in the still dark hours Sunday in a
    shanty town Wyelids open two by two But not a single light goes on
    Tension builds as the only sound Is the quiet clash
    of metal and boots And now and then an order barked
    At the bullies in the drab green suits
    Military thugs with their dogs and clubs Spreading
    through the poblacion Hunting whoever still has a voice
    Sure that everyone will run
    They come in strong but it's not that long Before they
    know it's not so easy to leave To keep a million homeless
    down takes more Than a strong arm up your sleeve
    At the crack of dawn the first door goes down Snapped
    off a makeshift frame In a matter of minutes the first
    rock flies Barricades burst into flame
    First mass rings through smoke and gas Day flowers
    out of the night Creatures of the dark in disarray
    Fall before the morning light
    Bells of rage -- bells of hope As the ten-year night
    wears down Sisters and brothers are coming home To see the Santiago dawn
    Santiago sunrise See them marching home See them rising
    like grass through cement In the Santiago dawn
    I got a dream and I'm not alone Darkness dead and gone
    All the people marching home Kissing the rush of dawn
    Santiago sunrise See them marching home See them rising
    like grass through cement In the Santiago dawn
