Aftermath

Aftermath

Forboding skies
With tawny shadows
No one knows
what happened here

Brave or dumb
Well, I don’t know
The trees looks no different here
From the ones outside the fence

It’s easy to feel safe
Do you feel safe?
It’s too easy to feel safe
Do you feel safe?

Downwind we take the blame
For carelessness that isn’t ours
a price to pay concealed
in grey dust gently falling

It’s easy to feel safe
Did they make you feel safe?
It’s too easy to make you feel safe
Did they make you feel safe?

So why the guards
Why the wires
why the checkpoints
If not for an incomprehensable presence
Lurking
