lyrics

We built a levee for a flood that never came
bullied by the fear of a false hurricane
and the waters have stayed on the other side
and our throats are parched and our kids rub their eyes
as they run, raising clouds where the sunlight hides
and the plants take their bows and then fall to their sides

what we’ve done to our river, what we’ve done to our land
we decided to undo by our very same hand
and just as we’d feared – or expected, some say -
the rain came around the very next day.
and the wind shoveled water like the dirt on to a grave
and we went down swimming with smiles on our faces.
