Dirt Poor Robins – No Land Beyond Lyrics

The lunatic becomes unfixed at night
For there he finds:
A flooded sky of judging eyes

Haunted by the court divine
The panic drives away his mind
And its disguises

He is not alone
We’re not alone
For us there was no land
No land beyond the edges of our outstretched hands
Can we beggars understand
More than our appetite demands?

For us there was no land
No land beyond
No land beyond

My kingdom come
My will be done
All trials shunned
I must be loved by everyone
I know if I wasn’t so terrified
I might see the light
Not as a flame or end of life
For us there was no land
No land beyond the edges of our outstretched hands
Can we beggars understand
More than our appetite demands?

For us there was no land
No land beyond
No land beyond

The world is too much with us
Late and soon
We have given our hearts away
A sordid boon

Getting and spending
We lay waste to powers
Little we see in nature that's ours
That is ours

That is ours
That is ours
That is ours
That is ours

[Piano]
If you don’t know
Why the bell tolls
You’ll only hear the chimes

If you don’t know of
The language spoken
You’ll only hear the rhymes

[this repeats under a new verse:]

In the end
We're all mad men
In the end
We're all mad men
In the end
We're all mad men

[A third verse appears while the other two repeat:]

When the world is
Upside down
Follow the fool
For solid ground

When the world is
Upside down
Follow the fool
For solid ground
