The transformations of fire: first sea; and of the sea half is earth, half fire-wind [...] sea pours out, and is measured in the same proportion as before it became earth.


crow fly east to the bone dry stream
crow fly west nothing but salty water
dig your well into the ground
one day you're gonna drink it all

crow fly north to the withered pine
crow fly south ten million poor and hungry
get your hammer in your hand
cause boy we gotta build that wall
this side is order and that side is how it falls
dry age is coming won't remember we were here at all

freight train runs down the rusted track
freight train comes pulling lumber and diesel
get the lever in your hand
cause boy we got a load to haul
this side is freedom that side is how it falls
dry age is coming gonna sting your eyes
no more hypotheses and no more lies
cause the temples and and towers
gonna tumble down with all that fall

high tide is coming gonna drown the sun
the power and the glory and the kingdom come
get your rifle in your hand
boy don't you hear your country call
