Calling On The One

Thorns in our sides we’re open wide
Out there in the prairie
Born without eyes our lives rely
Just like missionaries

Among the tall grass and the tumbleweed
We dodge the rattlesnakes and wolverines
Temperature rising uncompromising
And lift our voice up the the skies

Calling on the one who will always shine
Waiting for the moment when the stars align
Searching for the sound as the lights go down
Bursting like a fault line and falling all around
Calling on the one

Can i pretend my only friend
Has not led me safely
Through every storm i am transformed
Reanimate me

If trial by fire is what’s in front of me
My master does not fear my enemies
The gallows beckon but for a second
Before our voices testify

Calling on the one who will always shine
Waiting for the moment when the stars align
Searching for the sound as the lights go down
Bursting like a fault line and falling all around
Calling on the one

This isn’t easy baby
Where will this highway take me
Under the influence of love

What if the only reason
Is that our only freedom
Now and forever lies above
