lyrics

Somethin’s gotta break sometime
On a Midwestern skyline,
Where relentless horizons
Send minds wandering,
From coasts and skyways
To hi-ways and by-ways,
Your-ways and my-ways
We’ve traveled these paths before.

We ride,
Like gods in chariots
To predestined futures
And pasts like circles.

The parallel lines of wires
Like maps across blue skies
Drawing a straight line
Between two points, like a guide.
Generations have lived and died here
But we’ll be the first to leave here,
If only we can sever the ties that bind.

We stand,
Like monuments and headstones
Bloodlines mixed with bones
And pasts like circles.

We send our kids to die
Long before their time
The cause is lost, families torn,
And bodies sent home to mourn.
From coasts and skyways
To hi-ways and by-ways,
Your-ways and my-ways
We’ve traveled these paths before.

We ride,
Like gods in chariots
To predestined futures
And pasts like circles.
We stand,
Like monuments and headstones
Bloodlines mixed with bones
And pasts like circles.
