Iron is red, and coal dust is black
I surrender these hours I’ll never get back
I’ll trade my right hand for rent
my left hand for bread.
Coal dust is black, and Iron is red

The mid-morning sun is hidden in smoke
choked like a criminal wearing a rope
that circles the neck
and from high gallows is hung
Smoke hides the face of the mid-morning sun

But I wish I could fly
above covered skies
to celestial shores
And I’m building my wings
because I want to go soon
to meet with the stars
to consult with the moon

Evening comes crawling to the end of the day
like a mistreated animal lead to the hay
that lowers its head and lets its eyes close
Evening comes crawling defeated and slow

But I wish I could fly


from Above Covered Skies, released September 1, 2016
