STILL LIFE

They arrived at midnight.

Hadn't slept in so long.

Their starchy clothing became so worn.

He said, "There's no room here."

She was afraid to cry,

He was afraid to face the enemy,

So they let themselves slip into infinity,

Unknowing they were five feet from home.

And the snow fell down.

The snow fell down.

The only blanket that keeps you cold,

When you're already froze.

A last resort to keep from crying,

Don't they realize that it's dying?

In the center of the forest is a gentle waterfall.

And there's a frozen fountain,

But who is to know?

Each brown leaf is weathered and old.

Each drop of water is ice on stone.

And the snow fell down.

The snow fell down.

The fields are left untended.

The homes are unlocked and alone.

A windowpane remains unbroken,

In the December snow.

And the snow fell down.

The snow fell down.

Skyscrapers left a graveyard.

Planes remain un-flown.

Abandoned are the flowers.

Only ice feels at home.

And the snow fell down.

The snow fell down.

Where are the people?

The life that I know.

A subtle surrender,

Leading to statues of lost hope.

And the snow fell down.

The snow fell down.

The only blanket that keeps you cold,

When you're already froze.

A last resort to keep from crying,

Don't they realize that it's dying?

They arrived at midnight.

Statues on the ground.

He cradled her tightly.

She said, "Don't worry, the end is soon."

He was afraid to loose her.

She was afraid to loose.

Beware the waterfall.

Beauty from a distance,

Deathly in the palm.

And the snow fell down.

The snow fell down.

When the earth forgot to breathe,

So did everyone.

And the snow fell down.

The snow fell down.
