lyrics

Echo-Echo

Overhead the clouds of dust blow in
no rain left in atomic skies
What still grows lives underground in
caves that keep the remnant of our kind
Vicissitudes of what we knew—anemic-days
of reality in waste

A spark ignites, the moment comes
a voice beneath the embers will arise
The prophet speaks and all feel clouds
collide, the flash of lightning start to
strike. The spin is heard—all mirrors turn, reflect
their hopes—a course and current flows

Lifted hands for the coming peace
Shake the limbs to eat
all we can from the tree
Though the same, same blood and dust
we keep safe, erasing the other from us
Echo, echo, echoes still in repeat
Echoes of blood and dust
Echoes still in repeat

Trouble given names and faces—what
went wrong is blamed on certain types
Prophet trumpets fury into form—the cry
is take an eye for eye.
Upon their arms they seal the
mark, to surface burned, where all will
breathe their last

Lifted hands for the coming peace
Shake the limbs to eat
all we can from the tree
Though the same, same blood and dust
we keep safe, erasing the other from us
Echo, echo, echoes still in repeat
Echoes of blood and dust
Echoes still in repeat

Have mercy for the things that we have
done to harm each other and ourselves
For every war fought in your name
that profits from the other’s blood
For her, our wasted earth, she floods and
burns in our relentless greed
We search the sky, we hope to find
a better place we can survive
Forgive us now, oh somehow raise us from
the ruin we’ve become
We have forsaken you, forgive us now,
forgive us now
