Imaginary Lines

Informations sur la chanson

    Les paroles de la chanson

    Heaven help the soul that’s severed
    From the place where it belongs
    caught up in the mindless struggle
    Of the weak against the strong
    Headlights along the border
    Keep the peace, their law and order
    Why can’t we see it’s all a record of lies
    It’s their kind of strength
    It’s their only defense
    An imaginary line
    Just a kid and his younger brother
    Headed for the wire
    Had no rights in the telescopic sights
    Of the vigilante’s rifle fire
    And now he’s buried on the border
    Where the rivers are blood not water
    Why can’t we see it’s all a record of lies
    (Why can’t we see)
    It’s their kind of truth
    It can only be proved
    With imaginary lines
    In times like these concerning
    Who decides which bridge is burning
    Don’t fall for-map reading
    Just make sure that you’re still breathing
    After the lines were drawn, the children would
    dream of the pearls and how beautiful they were.
    Year after year they would dive to the bottom of
    the lagoon hoping that the oysters would come
    back. They risked everything-their homes, families
    and meager possessions-to search for the pearls.
    To make sure they were heavy enough to reach the
    bottom, the children tied stones to their backs.
    Many of them died, streams of blood and broken
    bodies rose to the surface of the lagoon…and
    the lagoon cried.
    Why can’t we see it’s all a record of lies
    (Why can’t we see)
    It’s their kind of strength
    Their only defense
    An imaginary line
    Why can’t we see it’s all a record of lies
    (Why can’t we see)
    It’s their kind of truth
    It can only be proved
    With imaginary lines
