Face down on the ground in the water
Quiet now, he drowned with his mother
All I see lapping waves all around
Now we’ll leave all we’ve seen in the water

But he was not my son
He dreamed for everyone
But we will let him go
To a soft sandy hole

Morning light, smoky sky, children running
All around there’s the sound buildings crumbling
Dig a hole spread the dirt all around them
Mumbled prayer on the stair voice is hallow

How many times
will it take for to you understand
2000 years
and there’s still no plan
Who do you think
will be there to hold your hand
2000 years
and there’s still no plan


from a fire in the dimming light, released January 2, 2020
