lyrics

some call it vast
others a waste
hide your face when the winds begin to blow
see what you want
keep your eye on the sky
turn the dirt and call it home
but don't you question why we're not alone?

you got silos up above, silos down below, silos
caught between heaven and hell
when is the harvest? no one can tell
we're still waiting for the rain

what you build or grow
is what you call your own
but you're not looking deep beneath your yield
we all see behind
that "do not enter" sign
and there you sit pretending it's not real
but we cannot till what's planted in that field

you got silos up above, silos down below, silos
caught between heaven and hell
when is the harvest? no one can tell
we're still waiting for the rain

we tend the land, tend the land
and it changes hands
we tend the land

you got silos up above, silos down below, silos
caught between heaven and hell
when is the harvest? no one can tell
we're still waiting for the rain
we're still waiting
