The Crossing
Strike Anywhere Lyrics


I woke up screaming
But no one heard
The drying river shining to the breathing world
What was I dreaming of?

And I missed all the gardens
All the animals' footprints fresh in the rain
Now there's only the train, the beast gives wait
Another master, another day
In the borderlands
Cities forgotten
Borderlands
Crossing over me

So wipe the tears from your cheekbones
And the blood from your fingers
We are the ghosts in the theater of human rights
Just beyond their security lights

In the borderlands
Cities forgotten
Borderlands
Crossing over me

To the borderlands
Rivers and mountains
Borderlands
Crossing over me

This world is bigger than this
Bigger than lines drawn by governments
Illusions we're tracked by your eyes
Always watching

Just like the cameras twisting 'round this place
Out 24,000 miles in space
Always so cold and so clear
But how do we get to the world from here?

Crash the system's hate
From the factory floor to the White House gate
Crush the system's hate
From the Maquiladora to the White House gate

To the borderlands
Cities forgotten
Borderlands
Crossing over me

To the borderlands
Rivers and mountains
Borderlands
Crossing over me
