Wasteland

Album: Rivers In the Wasteland (2014)
  • I'm the first one in line to die
    When the cavalry comes
    Yeah it feels like the great divide
    Has already come
    Yeah I'm wasting my way through days
    Losing youth along the way

    Oh if God is on my side
    Oh if God is on my side
    Oh if God is on my side
    Who can be against me

    There was a greatness I felt for awhile
    But somehow it changed
    Some kind of blindness I used to protect me
    From all of my stains
    Yeah I wish this was vertigo
    It just feels like I'm falling slow

    Oh if God is on my side
    Then who can be against me

    Yeah in this wasteland where I'm livin'
    There is a crack in the door filled with light
    And it's all that I need to get by
    Yeah in this wasteland where I'm livin'
    There is a crack in the door filled with light
    And it's all that I need to shine

    All of these people I meet
    It seems like they're fine
    Yeah in some ways I hope that they're not
    And their hearts are like mine
    Yeah it's wrong when it seems like work
    To belong all I feel is hurt

    Oh if God is on my side
    Yeah if God is on my side
    Oh if God is on my side
    Who can be against me

    Yeah in this wasteland where I'm livin'
    There is a crack in the door filled with light
    And it's all that I need to get by
    Yeah in this wasteland where I'm livin'
    There is a crack in the door filled with light
    And it's all that I need to shine

    Oh if God is on my side
    Yeah if God is on my side
    Oh if God is on my side
    Who can be against me Writer/s: Bear Rinehart, Bo Rinehart
