10 shadow - vampire deer

December 17, 2017 3:52 PM

i wrote this in 1997, cribbing considerably from psalm 91 - i'm not as optimistic or as confident as the psalmist was - i'm also pretty disturbed to see how much more relevant it is now than it was then

in the shadow of the lord where we shelter from the days
all our words like dusty winds sand castles billow in desert haze
when the fowler sets his snares in the places we called home
we will cross the dry rivers where the lillies used to grow
many mansions, many songs, many memories
many sorrows of an endless spring
many mansions, many songs, many memories
many joys of an endless spring

in the shadow of the lord we're still strangers to each other
and the country we once knew is a game park for the fowler
if i stand and if i sing forgive me if my song is uneven
if i stand and if i sing forgive me if my voice is broken
