Border Watcher

They told me, sit on this mountain and look over there
A sprawling story in the desert with lights barely seen
Everyone wants to cross over in the night
So watch the border and make sure they stay their side
Watch the border and make sure they stay there side

Moonlit smog makes El Paso glow like a snow
Juarez wraps around it, hoping for a sip of Gold
A dirty war rages and everyday people die
So watch the border and make sure they stay their side
Watch the border and make sure they stay there side

I’ve read stories about great walls before
They never helped with peace but always marked the wars
And even this wall, built in steel cemented so deep
I know will fall when the Truth is revealed and seen
