lyrics

These words were my absolute friend at the dawning
These words were my famous last ones
These words are my children I’ll tend them uncovered like gardens grown in the sun
Still I come to you brothers, and sisters and mothers
And fathers and eldest loved ones
I come to you pleading, though I know not the reason
We were brought here all deaf, blind and dumb

These times are a constant reminder to wander
To learn of our ancient regret
Embedded in tragedy, the soul of our country, redacted from histories text
Still I ask you to open your eyes, ears uncovered
Keep your thoughts to yourself
For the more you try speaking, the less you can listen
The less you will see where you are

And these days will be famous to all who come after
These days will be known for all time
The question remaining is what will they be known for, and who will remember them
Still we all hold our cards tight, afraid of the answer
Afraid of a change of plan
But let us be honest, this course will destroy us
If we do not find new direction

So these thoughts are a worry, just momentarily
These thoughts will still lead us to shore
These thoughts are our children, the song of our garden, the hope of a new world restored
Still I come to you brothers, and sisters and mothers
And fathers and eldest loved ones
I come to you pleading, to discover the reason
Your sleep is untroubled and calm
I come to you pleading, unfettered but bleeding
I will sleep when the dark finds the dawn
