#together against coronavirus

I come from a land of wide open spaces Where the world turns around us and we just follow suit There's heat in the air and peace reigns supreme

Got white flags on the clothes lines and the deals are new In the wind The ashes fly The poison crown The charcoal ground And if you can't see the smile in me That's where I wanna be There's only God There's only Christ Think I'll lie down For just a while And the grass became granite and the sky a black sheet Our bed was a graveyard, we couldn't feel our blistered feet And the moaning and groaning and sighing of death And the silence that followed and the very harsh reality So watch and check them out and listen as we learn Throw the pearls before the swine, ebb and flow, turning tide Yes, we watch and catch them no matter how they jump The pigs will have to come to ground, we've got to make it happen It's really not that new, try and make it happen now 'Cause what are we to do, maybe there's a chance for you All around An eerie sound Their dreams a cloud Their world in shrouds In the wind The ashes fly Not much time But time to try And if you can't see the smile in me That's 'cause I wanna be I want to be here at the end I have to be here at the end
