I recall a schoolboy coming home
Through fields of cane
To a house of tin and timber
And in the sky

A rain of falling cinders
From time to time
The waste memory wastes

I recall a boy in bigger pants
Like everyone
Just waiting for a chance
His father's watch

He left it in the showers
From time to time
The waste memory wastes

I recall a bigger brighter world
A world of books
And silent times in thought
And then the railroad

The railroad takes him home
Through fields of cattle
Through fields of cane
From time to time

The waste memory wastes
The waste memory wastes
Further, longer, higher, older
