I had that dream again;
the one with the wife and kids.
I woke along the trail,
bottled fire bruising my ribs.
I lost at counting cards
so count me among the first
to dot this new terrain
in drops of my failing worth.

There's far too much sun
and too much earth.
It swims out west where
we die of thirst.

Our terrors come at night,
silver tongues licking their lips.
I woke covered in sweat
and I knew that we won't live.
I've lost my way, oh Lord.
I don't know what I'm worth,
but bleed this newborn son
to bless this haunted dirt.

There's far too much sun
and too much earth.
It swims out west where
we die of thirst.
For want of freedom
and destiny
I gave my body and
the rest of me.
Created for Cosmosys exhibit XIII "Overdosed."
