The Great Divide

Album: single release only (2021)

  • We're striking matches on the TV
    Setting fires on our phones
    Bearing crosses we believe in dying on
    Tempers flare, the flame flies higher
    As we soar closer towards the sun
    But I like to think too much damage ain't been done

    We're all so far, so far apart now
    It's as deep as it is wide
    We're about to fall apart now
    If we can't reach the other side
    We gotta find a way across the great divide

    Sometimes it seems that our convictions
    Side of the fence that we stand on
    Makes us all too damn different to get along
    But I've seen strangers love each other
    Like a mother does her son
    What we see ain't only all that's going on

    We're all so far, so far apart now
    It's as deep as it is wide
    We're about to fall apart now
    If we can't reach the other side
    We gotta find a way across the great divide

    We're all so far, so far apart now
    It's as deep as it is wide
    We're about to fall apart now
    If we can't reach the other side
    We gotta find a way across the great divide
    The great divide
