Now we can say that nothings lost
And only change brings 'round the prophecy
Well now it's melting the solid frost
Was once a veil on greener landscapes we would see

Beneath my surface the water's heating
The steam comes up and out the tears you see me shine
For every strange and bitter moment
There was never a better time

For every pleasure exacts its pain
How you hurt me, how you were good to me
Beneath my window a mournful train
That makes me smile at my bad poetry

But beneath my surface a song is rising
And it may be simple well it hides it's true intent
We may be a looking for our deliverance
But it has already been sent

It's in the nightfall when the light falls
And what you've seen isn't there anymore
It's in our blind trust, love will find us
Just like it has before

They're sending soldiers to distant places
X's and O's on someones drawing board
Like green and plastic but with human faces
And they want to tell you it's a merciful sword

But with all the blood newly dried in the desert
Can we not fertilize the land with something else
There is no nation by God exempted
Lay down your weapons and love your neighbor as yourself

It's in the nightfall when the light falls
And what you've seen isn't there anymore
It's through our blind trust that love will find us
Just like it has before

SALIERS, EMILY ANN
