lyrics

Body Down

I know a land not too far away
Watch the willows, back and forth they sway
See the mountain, not too high a climb
See the city, got blood on the sign

There’s the hound, body down
Body down on the ground
Stop running around—lock up that hound
And get that body off the ground

In a maze of brick and vine
I heard her screaming but failed to find
Met a man with one hand on the sun
Broke my knees then taught me how to run

Home at last from the fight
See my hands, black as night
See the fountain, laced in time
Count the ripples as they fade in rhyme
