"FAR COUNTRY"

Verse 1
In the far country
The war-like drums they pound.
In the far country
It's a captivating sound.
The sirens there will sing in your ears [oooh],
Priests of lethargy will try to calm your fears.
Well, they say their paper gold
Can dry away your tears
In the far country, in the far, far coun-try.

Verse 2
In the far country
You can smell the sweet perfume
Of the women in the windows,
Their plush and scented rooms.
They call down to the street
And invite you up to play;
Throw their bodies at your feet
And promise to obey.
They're only beautiful
From a good long ways away
In the far country, in the far, far country.

Chorus 1
So I'm standing on this rock,
I'm calling; can you hear?
Still standing on this rock
Where I first held you so near.
Please climb back to this rock;
You can see it all so clear.
Come on back up this hill.
You know that I will love you still.
Umm, mmm.

Break: ---2 times

Bridge
In the Father's house
You'll be sure to find
A place you can still call home,
And real peace of mind.
His heart and arms are open wide,
They're open to you.

[Repeat Chorus 1]

Chorus 2
So I'm standing on this rock,
Calling; can you hear? [Can you hear?]
Standing on this rock
Where I first held you so near.
Please climb back to this rock.
You can see it all so clearly.
Come on back up this hill.
We all still love you dearly.
