This news won't break my heart
It's already been blown apart
I feel like a helpless girl
In this tender troubled world

Another bomb lights up the night
For someone's vision of paradise
But it's just a wasted sacrifice
That fuels the hate on the other side

All in the name of a holy land
All to claim a line in the sand

Chorus:
Oh but the promised land
Is just across another line in the sand
Yeah but the promised land
Is just across another line in the sand

Just like at Calvary
Soldiers do the bidding of their king
And dreams are lost one at a time
Blown across both sides of the line

You can't kill a giant with just one stone
You can't erase the story of a family's home
A hate-filled heart still beats alone
Walking wounded on that endless road

And there's so much blood on all our hands
It cuts an even deeper line in the sand

Chorus

I hope a forgiving rain will fall sometime
And wash away that line

Chorus
