Lyrics
You will be moved when the baby lets out his very first cry
You will be moved when you think of how hard he'll have 2 try
He'll grow up on an empty stomach, but he'll try his best 2 listen
2 the teacher readin' from a schoolbook with half the pages missin'

Surely when the rain comes, you will be moved
La da da da da
See the video

You will be moved, and you will be when the baby makes all the grades
You will be moved, and you will be when they still don't hire him anyway
Moved by a system without one single guarantee
That an education is the answer and love will set us free

Oh, you will be moved when the rain comes, oh yes, you will be moved
When the streets overflow with angry souls, that's when you see the truth
When the pain that u've inflicted comes back on your door 2 roost
(back on your door 2 roost)
That's when you'll see the future (future), but you won't see you

You will be moved when the whip comes down
On the back of one of your own
You will be moved when you look 4 compassion
But you find you're all alone
Moved, and you will be
When you are, that's when you'll know
That the bread you share is better than the blood
That your deeds have caused 2 flow
(that the bread is better than the blood)

Hey, you will be moved when the rain comes, oh yes, you will be moved
When the streets all flow with angry souls, that's when you'll see the truth
When the pain that you've inflicted comes back on your door 2 roost
(back on your door 2 roost)
That's when you'll see the future (future), but you won't see you

I said surely when the rain comes, you will be moved
La da da da da (la da da da da)
See the video

Hey, surely, surely, surely (when the rain comes)
Surely y'all
Ow, la da da da da
