The Fault Line

written by vanessa collier

 

Blistered earth, split without a sound

We’re standin’ on opposite sides, toes pointed to the common ground

One foot in the right, always a little in the wrong

Oh where do we go from here?

 

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason why

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason

 

Eyes clamped shut, can’t see the other point of view

Each been holdin’ our ground like it’s, like it’s a virtue

Can you still see my side, oh I, I can still see yours yeah

Oh where do we go from here?

 

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason why

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason

 

More comfortable with comfort than the truth

We run away from challenges

Never learnin’ anymore than what we knew

Can we keep an open mind this time?

Oh where do we go from here?

 

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason why

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason

 

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason why

We’re standin’ at the fault line

We don’t even know the reason
