lyrics

IN THEIR NAME
Words & Music by Stephen Randall

If all our Gods were talking
I’d hope they’d find respect
For their differences and perspective
And wisdom and regrets
As we’ve screwed up their ambition
For this beautiful prospect

But if all our Gods were talking
I'm afraid of what they'd say
I don't think that they'd be smiling
At their garden in decay
At the mindless acts of killing
And the hypocrites that pray

CHORUS
In their name
In their name
All our Gods will be crying
For their children on judgment day

Are all our Gods mistaken?
What in hell did they create?
A world that's full of promise
And a race that’s bent on hate
Why don’t the faithful question
What is done in the name of faith?

CHORUS
In their name
In their name
All our Gods will be crying
For their children on judgment day

If their image was our blueprint
Then where did we go astray?
All the meek are destined to inherit
Are centuries of crusade
And all our Gods will be crying
For their children on judgment day

CHORUS
In their name
In their name
All our Gods will be crying
In their name
In their name
All our Gods will be crying
For their children on judgment day

about

Stephen Randall New York

I'm a Brit living in Brooklyn, NY.

I used to be a professional songwriter, but when I wrote for other people, I lost touch with the music that was important to me personally. I forgot who I was and what fed my soul. I put down my guitar and keyboard to pursue other adventures. Four years ago I started writing again, but this time, I wrote from my heart and experience and for me.
