about

For all of us with the capacity to do good, and the capacity to make a mess of things.

“The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either - but right through every human heart“ - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

lyrics

If there is a great divide
I could find myself on either side
When good and bad collide
There’s a battle raging on inside.

Even on my better days
I could still mess up ten different ways
I’m not easy to define
I guess that I’m on both sides of the line

It runs right down the middle of my heart
Right down the middle of my heart
I don't know where it ends
But this is where I start
It runs right down the middle of my heart

I was broken from the start
Everyone's a fractured work of art
In the light and in the dark
Smudged and dirty fingerprints of God

Hour to hour and day to day
I say things I wish I didn't say
All's not lost but all's not fine
I guess that I’m on both sides of the line

It runs right down the middle of my heart
Right down the middle of my heart
I don't know where it ends
But this is where I start
It runs right down the middle of my heart

Take my right take my wrong
Take these broken, simple little songs
Wipe the dirt from my face
Wash me in the river of your grace

Let it run right down the middle of my heart
Right down the middle of my heart
I don't know where it ends
But this is where I start
Running right down the middle of my heart
