Hear The Heathen

I know the path is all descending

Half moon and a hundred silent stars

I feel the dirt between the boot treads

I hear crying in the dark

———————————————-

Hear the heathen offering up a prayer

Of forgiveness for what he took away

Held the head down of one who truly loved him

Body bending, burdened by the shame

————————————————

Downtown the night is never ending

Street lamps as piercing as the sun

Half glass always looks so empty

I know I’ll buy another one

———————————————–

Hear the heathen offering up a prayer

Of forgiveness for what he took away

Held the head down of one who truly loved him

Body bending, burdened by the shame

—————————————————-

She sleeps and walks among the hallowed

Stained sheets, infirmary beds

I reach and try to gently wake her

She weeps for the silent and the dead

———————————————-

Hear the heathen offering up a prayer

Of forgiveness for what he took away

Held the head down of one who truly loved him

Body bending, burdened by the shame

———————————————–
