lyrics

the killing fields are striped with red...white lies in between. While on that placid blue they float like islands safe from all the sowed beneath. High above, high above that poor man's toil they lay in sacred isolation. Safely placed in rows they are stars of self-preservation.
on Good Friday...on Good Friday
all that Glory.....all that Ol' Glory
in that corner sea serene 50 stars line up against You
flying high but they will sink "with the weight of a heavy mill stone"
no man is an island no man can run from all they've done
in that deep blue they'll sink...50 stars never to see the Son
while on Good Friday...
those red stripes are carved into Your back
on Good Friday...
those stars spangled Your body blue and black
on Good Friday...
those stars and stripes are torn in two
and all that glory...all that Ol' Glory belongs alone to You!
on Good Friday...on Good Friday
all that Glory....all that Ol' Glory belongs alone to You!
