34 // The Man in the Sky

If he’s listening

ask him for the lives

the lives he’s stolen

and ask him

tell him we don’t believe

we don’t pray

we don’t wake each morning and thank him for today.

The trust’s evaporated and left nothing but air.



The numbers mean


but we count them anyway

we count them because we’ve nothing else to do

and once everything’s gone

the voices drone out and we have nothing

nothing but the numbers we’ve made

and the ones we haven’t.
