Soft crying
from one ear to another
E
That sound of terror
I’ve come to know it well
I knew it the day God
decided it was my turn
To take in some air
The feeling of struggle
Everything tearing asunder
E
Just nonsense
That comes to make sense
That gives reason to tears
That muffles the sobbing
Deep within
E
E
E
Six feet in smoke, I hear it
E
E
E
What a wonderful understanding
To a sound I never understood
E
E
E
Six feet and smoke, I still hear it
Under and under I go
It follows me and my shadow
As I dive into the unknowing
E
Funny how it becomes
The only thing I know now
