                      imaginary lines 

                   (Writers: J. Lennon,A.Moore, J.Clayton, B.ezrin)

heaven help the soul that's served

from the place where it belongs

caught up in the mindless struggle

of the weak against the strong

headlights along the border

keep the peace, their law and order

why can't we see it's all a record of lies

it's their kind of strength

it's their only defense

an imaginary line

just a kid and his younger brother

headed for the wire

had not rights in the telescopic sights

of the vigilante's rifle fire

and now he's buried on the border

where the rivers are blood not water

why can't we all see it's all a record of lies

(why can't we see)

it's their kind of truth

it can only be proved

with imaginary lines

in times like these concerning

who decides which bridge is burning

don't fall for -map reading

just make sure that you're still breathing

after the lines were drawn, the children would

dream of the pearls and how beautiful they were.

year after year they would dive to the bottom of the lagoon hoping that the oysters would come back. they risked every-thing -their homes, families, and meager possessions- to search for the pearls.  to make sure they were heavy enough to reach the bottom . the children tied stones to their backs. many of them died. streams of blood and broken bodies rose to the surface of the lagoon....and the lagoon cried.

why can't we see it's all a record of lies

(why can't we see)

it's their kind of strength

their only defense

an imaginary line

why can't we see it's all a record of lies

(why can't we see)

it's their kind of truth

it can only be proved

with imaginary lines
