1. Broken Line

Restless is dawn as it wanders the farm house<br />
A new day awaits though he’s worked through the night<br />
Patiently planting his thoughts on the pages<br />
Under the mumble of kerosene light<br />
Off to the West you can feel it coming<br />
A thick, steel vein for a river of power<br />
Carelessly turning the earth into wasteland <br />
As thousands of years disappear in an hour<br />
Hold your ground on the wrong side of the plough<br />
They’re closer now to a cold, black, broken line<br />
Hold your ground when they come to cut you down<br />
They’re closer now to the rock that breaks the tines<br />
Can’t see what you do from back in the boardroom <br />
Faceless equations of profit and cost<br />
They wave you away like a fly on the radar<br />
But keep coming back and you’ll throw them off course<br />
Though it’s always been this way<br />
Doesn’t mean that it’s your fate<br />
But you know it takes the strength of heart and mind<br />
And the faith someday the world will see your side<br />
Nothing is lost if you give yourself wholly<br />
Nothing is gained if you keep it inside<br />
