Lyrics:

From the sky, we look so organized and brave

Walls that make up barricades and graves

Daddy's little empire, built by hands and built by slaves

From the sky, we look so organized and brave

In the heat, I saw you rising from the dirt

Drunken tears and tugging at your skirt

If only you could tell me then, what part of you got hurt

In the heat, I saw you rising from the dirt




Take my hand baby, we're over land

I know flying over water makes you cry

Where's that liquor cart, maybe we shouldn't start,

but I can't for the life of me say why




From the sky the highway's straight as it could be

A string pulled tight from home to Tennessee

Still, somehow, those ditches took the better part of me

From the sky, the highway's straight as it could be




Take my hand baby, we're over land

I know flying over water makes you cry

Been in the sky so long, seems like the long way home,

but I can't for the life of me say why

Did we leave our love behind
