The Line Lyrics - Margo King


[Verse 1]
Voices in the dark, writin' on the wall
It's been a hard few years, I think I've seen it all
Roughin' up the dirt, shootin' lead at the sky
Oh, it's been a long time since I aimed that high

[Chorus]
Woah, been messin' around
Tryin' to tear the curtains down
Rich people be leavin' their big windows bare
You can watch 'em havin' dinner, you can watch 'em say a prayer
Oh, Lord, thank you for all of your time
And blessed are we who skipped the line
[Post-Chorus]
Mm
Mm

[Verse 2]
Rolled a lotta dice, took it as a loss
Spent a long few years learnin' what it cost
Now I lay me down, another sleepless night
While they bet upstairs on the endless fight

[Chorus]
Woah, been messin' around
Tryin' to tear the curtains down
Rich people be leavin' their big windows bare
You can watch 'em havin' dinner, you can watch 'em say a prayer
Oh, Lord, thank you for all of your time
And blessed are we who skipped the line

[Chorus]
Woah, been messin' around
Tryin' to tear the whole thing down
Rich people leave you watchin' them go
You can watch 'em take off from the farmland below
Oh Lord, please give us some of your time
For tired are we who are waiting in line
