Lyrics
One man sits upon
a hill so beautiful
and he looks down on
the wonders that were laid upon him

While another man sits alone
outside on brick and stone
wrapped in rich mans trash
holding on so tight it hurts while....

A young man robs a store
to get what he is owed
I will not be thrown away
while somewhere I know champagnes flows

A boy in a uniform
questions all that he was taught
prays to any god
who may have time to listen

"I'm a hero only if I die,
can you tell me why?"
I want to let the bullet fly
I just can't choose the right direction

We can wish but we must wait and wonder trying
to make sense beneath this cloud we're under dying
all is so, so beautiful and all is so unclear
when our eyes open beauty disappears

see the beauty queen in dress so tight
see eyes turn when she comes into sight
as she frowns upon
the wonders that were handed to her

see another woman rise at dawn
to catch a bus to work for not enough
to feed the children she will try to teach
to not grow up to be her

see her stand , screaming on the roof
god I love you but I see no proof
the pain puts me to sleep at night
it's still there when I rise

We can wish but we must wait and wonder trying
to make sense beneath this cloud we're under dying
all is so, so beautiful, and all is so unclear
when our eyes open beauty disappears

One man stands on high
Sells a gospel looking to the sky
while the weak and weary with eyes so wide
Picture glory they're told awaits them

See the loyal praying through their tears
with empty pockets holding only fear
Of a god so kind they're told
will bring riches to their life ten fold

See the Cadillac pull away
preacher man with nothing more to say
to the lost souls going one by one
to wonder what this pain buys when the kingdom comes

One man sits upon
A hill so beautiful
Another man looks up on
A hill so beautiful

We can wish but we must wait and wonder trying
to make sense beneath this cloud we're under dying
all is so, so beautiful, and all is so unclear
when our eyes open beauty disappears
