Marker in the Sand
by Pearl Jam



There is a marker, no one sees it cause of sand
Has covered over all the messages it kept
Misunderstanding what original truth was
And out expanding, in a faith but not in love

What went wrong?
Walkin tight rope high, over moral ground
Seeing visions of falling up somehow
Do come down
With the living, let what is living love
So unforgiving yet, needing forgiveness first
God, what do you say?

Those undecided, needn't have faith to be free
And those misguided, there was a plan for them to be
Now you got both sides claiming killing in God's name
But God is nowhere to be found conveniently

What goes on?
Walkin tight rope high, over moral ground
Walk the bridges, before you burn them down
Do come round
With a living let what is living love
So unforgiving yet, needing forgiveness first
God, what do you say, God,what do you say?

I feel a sickness, a sickness comin over me
Like watchin freedom being sucked straight out to sea
And the solution, well, from me far would let it be
But the delusion is feeling dangerous to me, yeah

What goes wrong?
Walking tight rope high, over moral ground
Seeing visions of falling up somehow
Oh, Do come down
With a living let, what is living love
Though unforgiving, yet, needing forgiveness first
God, what do you say, God, what do you say?
What do you say?
Calling out, calling out, calling out, calling out
I'm calling you out
