lyrics

FALLING MAN
(e. fischer)

this beautiful place is a terrible place
when you’re stateless, hiding in the grass
who can you trust in an alligator town
when you’re imperfect, in so many ways

sacred places, secret gardens
in the lingering fog of quiet desperation
keeping watch on the gravity hopes
of the fragile birds

the future is full of sticks and stones
the rules never change
goodness echoes from far away
and you don’t always have
the words to explain

the indelible sorrows of a
warrior life
the thin cement over
cracks in the ground
or why you rage at
photographs

of falling men

falling man
catch him if you can
the loner who comes from
somewhere else

somewhere you have never been

somewhere where the thrill you use
to keep yourself alert,
is only the operator of
an elevator shoe
shouting of spearspikes
in the underground

somewhere that is just as bad
for someone who’s never been had
falling man
