Sunrise Old

from Bones of Things by The Meligrove Band



Wake me slowly
Or Christ, I won’t escape this lonely
Lake of stone and lake of fire
Mistake this for a
Holy light to warn us
That dreams and treachery conspire.

Lonely does the sunrise

One eye open
And shut the other loosens
The ground conviction lays ahead.
Sweetly, sweetly,
The song that lulls completely
The head, the heart, the lungs
Will breathe the dead.

Lonely does the sunrise

Like the others that we left unjustly
Under the night!
Under the night!
Under the night!
“We’re never leaving”
