​Trying To Stand In A Fallen World

This song is by Pierce Pettis and appears on the album Chase The Buffalo (1993).

Won't you take this down for me
Down to the highway and set it free
Where you can hear that rain slick sigh
Of the semis blowin' by

Do you ever feel this way
Like there is no escape
And you're out there all alone
In a place that's not your home

Trying to stand in a fallen world

Do you recall when we were released
Clutching diplomas and degrees
Bursting out like diver's breath
That hasn't hit the surface yet

Do you ever feel this way
Like somehow we have been betrayed
And you wanna' rail against the crowd
Conspicuous and loud

Trying to stand in a fallen world

A bloody moon is on the rise
Like a Jolly Roger in the sky
A silent witness with its light
To another night of crime

Do you ever feel this way
Longing for the light of day
Then I send to you my song
And I swear you're not alone

Trying to stand in a fallen world
