Have the trees all fallen? / In my absence, Did the lights turn out in Santa Fe? I’m walking in a shadow, Cast by who knows what because The skyline’s bare / Now the leaves are gone, And in their wake the branches Lie gutted on the pavement Stripped to shiny bones That smile and smile, The call to arms blares out So sickly sweet / A mind rang out across the room That blazed so hot we’ll never know And in one blazing human breath They breathed their last / to think they were children they were just children / I feel a great and quiet darkness Has snuffed out those sparks That could have ignited the world And so I wonder How many million seconds, meant to be, Now never will? / Do good men die so other men Might learn, or worse still, win? Will those sparks Snuffed out in Santa Fe Ignite this world of apathy To shame? / I ask again, Have the trees all fallen Down in Santa Fe?
