A man stumbles about
Lost in his own shadow
And the police shoot and
I don’t understand
How the world
Has come to this
Anymore than this deranged young soul
Now flying free above the debris
Of his own body
Now high above the madness here below
How did we come to this?
Men failing to see their own shadows
So caught up in the urge to
Eradicate what they don’t understand
All they can do is die
Inside their own guns and rifles
We who are innocent
A different derangement taking us
Far far from where we once were
When we dreamed of holding hands
And starting a new world.
