"The Outskirts" as written by and David Carroll Erik Berry....
Well I turned around in time to see the clouds fade
Running back could only make them stay
Forward now I run down a winding road
Try to pay back everything that I have ever owed

And when your money runs, will you buy a friend?
And when your guns don't fire, will that be the end?
With no land left to burn, and nowhere left to run
Where then can we stand when it's all said and done?

Well I hear the thunder roll, I feel the cold winds blowing
But you won't find me there, 'cause I won't go back again
While you're on smoky roads, I'll be out in the sun
Where the trees still grow, where they count by one?

Well you take from our schools to build a bigger bomb
You tell us fiery lies about the course we're on
And you'll kill all the world, and you'll reverse the sun
And which would you sell first, your soul or your gun?

But I hear the thunder roll, I feel the cold wind blowing
But you won't find me there, 'cause I won't go back again
While you're on smoky roads I'll be out in the sun
Where the trees still grow, where they count by one?
