Cry no tears

Mother of no children

In a no man's land

Wear your flies well

Runaway to a long lost time

That was once our friend

And take your breads and flowers

With you

If you want to survive

You'll carry them all

On your back

While they sing a lullaby

That reminds you of home

Oh,how far is it now

Your shelter

Your daughter

Spring-born

And her hair smells like a lovechild 

Of Suns and heaven

Oh do you hear them coming

As all your deads sing an anthem

For you

Are you honored 

My child 

Or are you ashamed 

For all of those you left behind

As your eyes fall asleep

Soaked

Will you burn your way through 

Or is it just a tought

Passing

And then floating around

Dead
