Lyrics


Nowhereland
Greenberg/Harpeth Rising

From slavery were the people freed but soon did they complain
Behold one master bites the dust and another doth take his place
They wandered thirty centuries, the wind to call their home
It's a long way back from nowhereland when you've got nowhere to go
Seasoned in the burning rains their fate rides on the flood
And strikes the candles from the ark and buries them in the mud
And priest with cross and blazing sword doth raise the temple down
It's a long way back from nowhere land, in blood the world is bound

It's a long way back from nowhereland
It's a long way back until you stand
With just one raindrop in your hand
And the road a'blazing onward

Their ashes drift a burning snow, from smoke clouds did they fall
And now the storm doth rise again, solution's final call
With treachery on every side and those who now proclaim
We shall rid this world of hatred, just kill everyone we hate

And the profits sing in dessert songs of ancient ocean seas
And the waves of retribution that bring the victors to their knees
And strung like all their famous words on their rosary of deceit
The priests and politicians shall swing together

They say he walked in Galilee his hand upon on the sun
Oh love your brother as yourself, yes he was the only one
Behold in Eden's burning fields there grows the poison tree
It's a long way back from nowhereland when you're blind and will not see

It's a long way back from nowhereland
It's a long way back and then you stand
With just one raindrop in your hand
On the silent road of mourning
