500 Years

Album: They Lie In Wait
(Budde/Johnson)

500 years
Hear that distant sound
What’s another tear?
Unless the ship is goin’ down

Stripped of the land
Here and all around
What’s another tear?
Unless the statue’s goin’ down

Got no papers, please
Got me on my knees
What’s another tear?
The wall is just another word for fear

Tent-city home
Money all around
What’s another tear?
Unless it’s your own home goin’ down

City on a hill
Division is their game
What’s another tear?
Unless the shit that needs to go down goes down

500 years
Hear that distant sound
Got a failed state
500 years, the ship is bound to go down
