​Battle Lines

This song is by John Wetton and appears on the album Voice Mail (1994).

This song has been covered by Steve Hackett under the title "Battlelines".
And now I stand, forsaking pride
The time has come to turn the tide
I've drawn the line, I've built my wall
And I won't let one more dream fall

All days of innocence, I surrendered long ago

Where's the wind that takes me higher
The hand that offers peace
The heart that still gives shelter

I wanna go back to find
The innocent days that I left behind
I still believe they're holding ground
Behind the battle lines
If it takes a million miles over land and sea
Gonna swim in the rivers of purity
I know they still run free
Behind the battle lines

One more mountain I must climb
I've scaled so many in my time
And if the sun goes down on me
The light of truth will help me see

All days of innocence, I surrendered long ago

Where's the voice that speaks of mercy
The eyes that are not blind
The love that's never ending

I wanna go back to find
The innocent days that I left behind
I still believe they're holding ground
Behind the battle lines
If it takes a million miles over land and sea
Gonna swim in the rivers of purity
I know they still run free

A vision of eternity
Oh, Lord, never take the dream from me
Here I am, standing at the edge of destiny

I wanna go back to find
The innocent days that I left behind
I still believe they're holding ground
Behind the battle lines
If it takes a million miles over land and sea
Gonna swim in the rivers of purity
I know they still run free

Behind the battle lines
