holy man unholy land
building castles in the sand
ride your tanks through bethlehem
another thousand years to go before we're dead

fair haired beauty from the west
raised to love the government
dreams of houses with a white-picketed fence
half a lifetime to go before she's dead

oh they rolled my baby down
rolled her deep into the ground
no more to see
oh they rolled my baby down
all that's good enough is gone
no more to be
just let it be

i let her go my only daughter
they gave her food and bed and water
only love can make it better
for it's an endless road of sorrow left to go


from July, released July 19, 2011
