we strike the city walls
oh cheek, oh me
the bellow of the horn
soft
these prayers of galilee
god oh god
hear these fires
floods, locusts, blood
i stand above the sky
with my swords and my stones
look below
oh below
how sodom burns
with her blood, locusts, floods
holy oh
like salt, we still shiver
as the river nile floods
oh shivering
like locusts in the sun
these songs in our blood
and tears in their fall
oh
and like rain
on dust
we do our dissolves.
