Swallow The Sun

from Tilt by Brett Ryan Stewart



Across the fields I see locusts

Black smoke in the sky

I’m not ready for this

my one and only wish

was to sleep well tonight

fires burnin’ on the highway

bodies floatin’ in the lakes

you think you’re dreamin’

then you hear yourself scream

and you know you’re awake

Swallow the Sun desecrate the grave

you’d better run run run run run run run

from the mess that you’ve made

they’ve closed the road to Memphis

The lawyers shut it down

I can’t help but believe

the very last thing we need

is more lawyers now

Cell phones out of order

Stasis own the web

can you tell me the difference

between peaceful resistance

and rolling over dead

Swallow the sun

take take take take

and when everything’s gone

and you’re the only one

you’ll swallow the sun

I feel just like Helen Kellar

moving step by step

If you feel a little queasy

let me tell you it’s easy

you just help yourself

Swallow the sun….
