lyrics

The Other Side

The defeated shake their fists at the other side
The grey savior pleads his case to the other side
Skeptics are doubtin’ lunatics are shoutin’
They know nothing grows on the other side

The deniers hide their eyes from the neon signs
Don’t obstruct their view watching the waters rise
A heroine has spoken the silence is broken
They saw it comin’ on the other side

Gamblers place your bets the stakes are high
Can you guess what’s next will you roll the dice
On the other side

The main attraction feeds the hate of the satisfied
The red parade starves the faith of the petrified
They’re fighting in the streets - fighting just to breathe
There goes another vote for the other side

Every lethal lie is met with mild surprise
Everything’s for sale if the price is right
Too few too many in the land of plenty
They think they got it right on the other side

Gamblers place your bets the stakes are high
Can you guess what’s next will you roll the dice
On the other side

They think their money’s greener on the other side
Winners lose and saints are fools on the other side
They’ve made you afraid in the home of the brave
It’s not so great again on the other side

Gamblers place their bets on feeble minds
Can they guess what’s next when they’re laid to rest
On the other side

They’re walkin’ to the other side
They’re talkin’ on the other side
They’re lookin’ for leaders and believers on the other side
Get ready for a big surprise on the other side
