There's a dividing line in the center of town
that cuts the place in two
There's a dividing line in the center of town
that cuts the place in two
a knife that carves unspoken dreams
and taints both me and you
There's a dividing line in the center of town
that cuts the place in two

There's a hungry child laying in bed
with her father outside her door
There's a hungry child laying in bed
with her father outside her door
peeking in 'till she falls asleep
and then he'll pace the floor
There's a hungry child laying in bed
with her father outside her door

his wife has aged about 10 years
since the plant closed down
his wife has aged about 10 years
since the plant closed down
she used to be so much prettier
when they first moved into town
his wife has aged about 10 years
since the plant closed down

About a mile as the crow flies
a man lives behind a wall
knows the good Lord biblically
speaks in a righteous drawl
he hangs the flag high and proud
he told me so himself
he hangs the flag high and proud
he told me so himself
he's got the receipt for his tax cut
in a frame on his shelf
he hangs the flag high and proud
he told me so himself

They say we've turned the corner
they say there's light ahead
they say we've turned the corner
they say there's light ahead
but don't look behind the curtain
and don't count up the dead
they say we've turned the corner
they say there's light ahead

There's a dividing line in the center of town
that cuts the place in two
a dividing line in the center of town
that cuts the place in two
can you tell me you'll sit this one out
after all that we've been through
there's a dividing line in the center of town
that cuts the place in two
