Don Francisco - Crooked Cornerstone lyrics

Times just grains of sand
Blown out of sight by winds of change
Was it done by a man alone?
Destined to remain

Our own desires decieve us
And pervert the best made plans
Wickedness and despiration
Meets the heart of man

Boats without an anchor
Ships without a sail
Alone by doubt and circumstance
Too far gone to bail

Why go past the harbor?
Why ignore the light?
Sailing on an endless sea
To vanish in the night

If ya build with the crooked cornerstone
How're you gonna make it stand?
If a ship goes down in heavy seas
How're we gonna get to land?

What're ya gonna do when the river rises?
And your house is on the sand
If ya build with the crooked cornerstone
How're you gonna make it stand?

Sit and watch the river
While the flood is risin' high
The refuge of the race upstream
The flotsam of the light

Mansions on the riverside
Shanties on the pier
All the ones who told themselves
It'll never happen here

If ya build with the crooked cornerstone
How're you gonna make it stand?
If a ship goes down in heavy seas
How're we gonna get to land?

And what're ya gonna do when the river rises?
And your house is on the sand
If ya build with the crooked cornerstone
How're you gonna make it stand?

If ya build with the crooked cornerstone
How're you gonna make it stand?
If a ship goes down in heavy seas
How're we gonna get to land?

And what're ya gonna do when the river rises?
And your house is on the sand
If ya build with the crooked cornerstone
How're you gonna make it stand?
How're you gonna make it stand?
How're you gonna make it stand?
How're you gonna make it stand?
