lyrics

I just stared at the sun in the wake of a devastating earthquake. it shook my town to the ground. the smell of dust and gas all around. but there stood this tiny hut. built for only the slightly dark. it stood tall and strong and proud. now the folks on the other side. of the tracks had broken minds and backs and four wheel drives. beneath their brand new concrete piles. and the dark looked at them with a smile. and said "hey, come on over for awhile." we'll spend some time

together
we'll spend some time
all together
we'll spend some time
all together
we'll spend some time

now their eyes were holding them back. but their stomachs said please take a chance. it might not be all that bad. you see we've lost all that we had. but a fog came back over their eyes and their old minds said we'd rather die. than forget those family ties. cuz that story is all that you are. life preordained from before. you and you your lofty ideals were born. we worked hard to be so fortunate. but ma we've got nothing left. it don't matter son we've gotta protect. our way of life til the death.

forever
we've got to protect
it forever
we've got to protect
it forever
we've gotta keep it ours
