In the dead grass low I live here now
where the dead grass blows I stop and show
myself to you,
with a cruel voice slow I stalk to persecute,
with a mad mob in my head screaming "Execute....Execute..."
A little boy smiles then runs far away,
my memories are opening up as wide as yesterday.
In the Dead Grass Low I remember you.
where the dead grass blows...... I follow too.
I find so much sorrow under January Blue,
piercing skin from the hands that WAR has Drew!!
In the dead grass low I bleed for you
where cold winds blow visions through..
One thousand whispers in my ear.
One thousand smiles disappear and there's nothing left of you,
there's nothing left of you.
If you are still alive and it's just my eyes that cannot see.
Hold me where I hold you in my heart where Love Is Free.
Save me from the stalking Hawk who has captured me,
His razor claws and biting hate will not let me be..
In the lonely hours I call to you
and wait to hear your voice.
I'm standing here in a dark world with no other apparent choice.
In the dead grass low my shelters lost where the cold winds blow my heart apart.
There's a stranger here breathing close,
and the shattered glass reflects my face.
In the dead grass low I am Black Morose,
where storm winds steal every trace
as His footsteps blow away
the sky is turning from blue to shades of endless grey.
It is here where no one knows my name, no one knows my name,
in a place where nobody is the same
and everyone sets out to blame
there is only fire in our pain
where the grass can no longer grow.
So in the dead grass low I flow my silent thoughts to you,
hoping you return
some day on a warmer wind, I hope to see my friend,
some place with a warmer wind, I hope to see myself again....
