LYRICS

I see you running and I see you for the night
See you in the town and I’m falling and I’m gone tonight
And I’m feeling more alive
Falling in the fields to you…

Verse 1 (Michael Barber)
Walmart came and killed customer service
Killed mom and pops now we got parking lots
There’s an empty lot where the church use to be
So we wonder why in school God doesn’t breath
A meth lab went up, good nobody died
An arrest wasn’t made coppers took my supplies
Smelled some reefer couple kids getting high
Everybody out for they slice of the American Pie

Hook 2x (Josh Tifer)
I see you running and I see you for the night
See you in the town and I’m falling and I’m gone tonight
And I’m feeling more alive
Falling in the fields to you…

Verse 2 (Michael Barber)
Pill mills run amok so the fiends still up
See Crack around maybe if you head downtown
Racism still alive, but I wish that it wasn’t
See your best friends is all of your cousins
Little city like an island surrounded by corn
Same place you live and die is the place you was born
Johnny Law probably watching, it’s all politics
And Jesus is the hope so the broke don’t call it quits

Bridge (Josh Tifer)
The land that waits for you
It’s all over
The empty fields a new
Or am I falling for?
In the fields you come
I don’t know…
It’s the fields of dreams
All Over…

Hook 2x (Josh Tifer)
I see you running and I see you for the night
See you in the town and I’m falling and I’m gone tonight
And I’m feeling more alive
Falling in the fields to you…

Verse 3 (Michael Barber)
Weekend warrior but a worry through the week
Meek shall inherit but the bills getting steep
Heat lightening hit as the town start to sleep
Fashion and trends just sheep leading sheep
A few lucky numbers maybe a few scratch offs
Peanut butter crank make the heads blast off
Still at the bar when you hear last call
So ya head out, hoping to dodge Johnny law

Bridge (Josh Tifer)
The land that waits for you
It’s all over
The empty fields a new
Or am I falling for?
In the fields you come
I don’t know…
It’s the fields of dreams
All Over…
