lyrics

down by the wall, the earth has given up her ghost
and long ago, the waters drained from every pore,
up high the stars are bright because they try
but cannot look away
oh lord

a story's told, of simple lives of simple folk
who settled down, before the borders had been drawn,
their children born in sin because they didn't know
the maps had changed
oh lord
can we gain some perspective from above?

in Washington, they draw the plans and raise the funds
they break the ground, they keep us safe from the evil ones
who now have grown under the shadow of these walls
we've built for them
oh lord!

in Mexico, a new cartel has found a home
under the stars, in the broken land of the Rio Grand'
where fathers pray to God for someone to redeem
their children's name
oh lord
