The Sunken Lands Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Five cans of paint in the empty fields
The dust reveals
Verse 2
The children cry, the work never ends
There's not a single friend
Verse 3
Who will hold her hand in the sunken lands?
Verse 4
The mud and tears melt the cotton balls
It's a heavy toll
Oh oh
Verse 5
His words are cruel and they sting like fire
Like the devil's choir
Oh oh
Verse 6
But who will hold her hand in the sunken lands?
Verse 7
The river rises and she sails away
But she could never stay
Oh oh
Verse 8
Now her work is done in the sunken lands
There's five empty cans
