I am a crooked line, I am
I follow rivers' flow
I hug the rugged mountains' base
My path carved long ago.
But men they want to alter me
To suit their selfish needs
They fight and kill, the blood they spill
Until the landscape bleeds.
It's neighbor against neighbor
And father against son
And after all the blood has dried
Has anybody won?
I am a crooked line, you see
I am a border line
It's mankind's folly to dispute
What's Nature's own design.
