Something from the Water

1. It's getting late and you're carrying your spade,
The night is heavy, pulling so much freight.
Your eyes are dim and flooded at the rims,
The Earth so still you wonder how it spins.


You are picking through the sticks and twigs
in the earth around her house.
She pulled something from the water
that you can't live without.

Staring at hard facts got your mirror cracked
All the years of hard luck
outside your back door stacked.
Through the trees you hear the steady stream
of current voices in the currency of screams.


Just rusty nails in busted rubber pails.
A muddy picture-postcard giving up its tales.
A crooked smile that waves between the lines,
it fades to mystery under pale moonlight.

[Chorus] x2
