about

Title pretty much says what's up here.

lyrics

the tin roofs have a dull and eerie glow
under the copper sun, corrode
streets of mud, they swallow broken carts
a contrast to the stars

black out
spot light
barbed wire
when it’s cut, can we go?
will you stay even though they shot at us today?

wrap you in arms too frail for my age
emaciated
nourishment is broth and sawdust bread
the walking dead

black out
barbed wire
search lights
as they sweep, will you run?
follow me and come towards the setting moon

they lied to the Red Cross,
made fools of the diplomats
the wounded weren’t from combat
the only day they gave us shoes to wear
cleaned our clothes
cut our hair





run and weave to the reeds
trust in god
patience

present no target
hold my hand, love
must leave your cousin
hold my hand, love
our shield the darkness
hold my hand, love
we get away
get away

prepare
dress warm
layer
it will be cold

explain all this with drawings in the sand
the border lands
sanctuary here where the river bends
we’ll build our home
and start again
