We were alone in the wilderness
The day the reckoning came
And we were all afraid
Of what was to come
But nothing came, or so you said
For I did not have the eyes to see
Or the mind to think or the tongue to weep
Or anything really
And I looked upon the waterfall
As the only evidence of god
As the only evidence of evidence
I thought it was all a fraud
I tell you now, it wasn’t like that
But you wouldn’t believe me then
Your mind stood naked and angry
And I was your fountain pen

And we went down, down, down
Till we hit the ground
Where we used the names of those we’ve loved to carry on.
