WASTELAND

You and I know

What the world owes

It’s up to us

 

We were turning

Old and cold and unloving

We were turning

We’re returning

From being lost and cold

And not understood

 

You and I owe

Must explain it to them

 

We were turning old and under

We were giving everything

to make the best for everyone

Returning with compassion

That once was so strong

We are returning

 

You and I owe

What the world knows

It’s up to us

 

Earth divers returned

Dark waters drained to nightfall

Many chose themselves

They plunged into isolation

Cast themselves the garden

Exiles died from avarice

Out of death comes new life

Returning to the surface

Prepared for sacrifice

Born through all we give
