The Road

Album - Twentyfourseven

Released - 2008-06-01

 
The road map to freedom Translates as a fake Handshakes and mistakes Turns into heartaches
When losers have lost Their give and their takes
Handshakes and mistakes Turns to heartaches


Chorus:
 Five hundred thousand forced to flee A million square miles of emergency                          Another two million will go hungry When there’s no guarantee for the refugee
 
The road from Darfur Runs red with denial Waterless mile after Waterless mile
Barefooted fear Kicks the dust of exile Waterless mile after Waterless mile 
The road out of Gaza Is paved with lost souls Buried in holes  By the border patrols Washed clean with the tears That they cannot control Drowned in the holes
