lyrics

THE ELDER SON & THE WORKERS Cursed, the ground beneath our feet / This unrelenting heat / The heavens send no rain / Cursed, this drought with no remorse / Our work with no reward / This labor done in vain / How long, O Lord, will you not answer prayer? / Our land has been laid bare, our lives reduced to dark despair / How long, O Lord, will silence crush our hope? / Will grief be all we know, till we return to dust? / Dust! / THE ELDER SON Cursed, the day you dared to ask / For your inheritance / The consequence remains / Cursed, these long, fruitless years / My father’s wasted tears / The seasons never change / THE ELDER SON & THE WORKERS How long, O Lord, will you not answer prayer? / Our land has been laid bare, our lives reduced to dark despair / How long, O Lord, will silence crush our hope? / Will grief be all we know, till we return to dust? / Dust! / THE ELDER SON Day after day, nothing here changes / Sowing our seed, sorrow is all we reap / THE ELDER SON & THE WORKERS How long, O Lord, will you not answer prayer? / Our land has been laid bare, our lives reduced to dark despair / How long, O Lord, will silence crush our hope? / Will grief be all we know, till we return to dust? / Dust! / THE ELDER SON Cursed, the ground beneath our feet / This sweat that covers me / The heavens send no rain
