Lyrics to Miles Of Desert Sand
Years of trouble here that blind us
Danger closing in
All we know we leave behind us
And we won't be back again

Oh, my brother
Come and take my hand
We'll walk together
'Til we reach the promised land

All the sun and the pain here
Are greater than the miles
Of desert sand

In the land of milk and honey
There's fruit on every tree
Our feet blistered and bloody
But our children will be free

Oh, my sister
Come and take my hand
We'll walk together
'Til that promised land

All the pain we left behind us
Is greater than the miles
Of desert sand
Greater than the miles
