If the World Is Night

Well the world seems spent
And the president
Has no good idea
Of who the masses are
Well I’m one of them
And I’m among friends
We’re trying to see beyond
The fences in our own backyards
I’ve seen the kingdoms blow
Like ashes in the winds of change
But the power of truth
Is the fuel for the flame
So the darker the ages get
There’s a stronger beacon yet

Let it be me
(this is not a fighting song)
Let it be me
(not a wrong for a wrong)
Let it be me
If the world is night
Shine my life like a light

[Indigo Girls lyrics = 75]

    I’ll sure light my lighter to those lyrics. Emily Saliers never penned truer ones. The black band of mourning says it all. : (

    dig hole.
    lay down in it.
    pull the soil over me.
