Oh my country

Oh my country

breaches in humanity abound

where once the purple plains

rose to meet the endless sky

now endless pain

Oh my country

to others as the best

yet those that try to share the lode

Sun breaks the tree line
just outside my door
just outside my window

born, work, love, die

if song can lift

by balms so sweet
when music fills
the voids so deep
