If you survive nightmares on the hill
Sunburn and the plague
The doctors would be proud
Your soul and skin saved

Headless years of fire
Making ash of your barn
Muttering lies so blind
No war, no horns, no fission bombs
Just circles of the mind

Heard you were bleeding from the neck
Safe as your living cells protect
Twisted like atlas held the earth
Primordial dances at your birth
Rock the cradle at your birth

Feetless years of rain
Making slush of your wound
Shuddering eyes so blind
No fog, no light, no chosen ones
Just circles of the mind

Breathe and watch where your time froze
Over transistors and pines
Sail away in your medicine
A song alive in your mind

Bright reflections and flocks of birds
Masterpiece in your eyes
Fall asleep in the metal sea
Trees growing over the tide
