lyrics

A Parable
This is how I begin, this is how I can be.
This is why it started and why it won’t end.
This is where it goes. Life turning old, dying cold, sinking into the sea.
This is how we begin, this is how we can be.
This is how it started and why it won’t end.
This is where it goes.
Before our fall we we’re fallen down and fallen from before.
Fearing rule and facing land, the hands built this from seed – and sun.
Life turning old, dying cold, sinking into the sea
Washing it out, thinking about, rising from the sea.
From the water to the sun, from the sun to the dirt,
from the leaves to be. To be something green. This is where it goes.
Life turning old, dying cold, sinking into the sea.
Washing it out, thinking about, rising from the sea.
A pear, a bull. Bird to human: live and let live. Long live dirt.
Dirty air breeds dirty water. Bird to human:
a parable to save the earth, long live water, long live dirt.
Long live dirt. Air and soil. Seed and sun.
Water then. Birth for all. Wish you well. Still we go.
I can’t fly, far enough. Won’t look back, still I roam.
Not here in, the morning. Cages fight. Taking Flight.
Next morning I’ll be born and will first breathe fresh air,
I’m certain that soon wind will be my friend.
Playing this circular.
This morning’s water feeds and turns my growth to root.
Pollen meets pistil and makes wind seed’s friend.
Water then. Birth for all. Playing this circular. Playing this circular play.
