A promise of understanding and inclusion
The silent and slow sacrifice to the jealous hive
Forty-odd years of hypnotized collusion
Crashed in a tranquil sea, a girl barely alive
Six flags on sticks, limp in the sunlit vacuum
Seventy-three proud ships that cannot fly
Footprints that end where they begin in the grey gloom
Sixty-six scriptures bound in a blood-tanned hide
Daughter of Earth, Queen of Night
Sucking on tides like a hungry child
Smiling and frail, we sleep in your pale cocoon
Watching the blue planet rise
Lost in a sweet, wily lullaby
A long way from home and watching us
From the Moon
A place on this soft red earth, so long forgotten
Babbling towers built to the shallow sky
Bastard desire, the harvest rank and rotten
The startling complicity that leads souls to die
I’m looking down from afar
At the suffering, beautiful fools we are
At this sacred lunacy that from stars is hewn
And I can’t feel my feet on the ground
And I fear that what’s lost might never be found
And I’m cold and alone, I want to come home
From the Moon
