SONG FOR THE ANONYMOUS #2

In our season
Tom, the night came down
For no reason
Then our eyes were ground to dust
Ask we must, though it seems we're sleepin'

Skies unopen
Rivers soon may cease to flow
Something's broken
but who the hell are we to know or trust?
Still ask we must about the crop your reapin'

The conversation's mainly out of tune
Speeches disappear into the June air
And though we amble on, we'll choke through dirt our song
We're singin' for the pilots in the room

Over diamonds
Over fields of fallen stones
Who can find them?
The collectors of our bones and rust
Ask we must if there is something burnin'

Night was callin'
From the place where Faulkner laid
Words were fallin'
oe'r the bed I had once made and mussed
Ask to us if there's something we've been learnin'

The conversation's mainly out of tune
Speeches disappear into the June air
And though we amble on, we'll choke through dirt our song
We're singin' for the pilots in the room
