From the recording Dark Matter


I am lost
In the shadow in the valley
I’ve lost everything that I loved
My wife, my children, my friends, my country
Everything that I held so precious

I’m calling
Can you hear me?
I’m calling
What do you want from me?

Across the desert
In the shadow of the rock
Where the stories lie deep
And I try to be faithful
And I cry for my country
I’ve seen too much
There’s only hope now
I’m only human
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?

The killers of the country
Coming on their horses
Asking me if I’m for hire
As if I don’t belong here

I’m standing on the mountain
My arms outstretched
Looking for my people
Can they see me yet?
Send me a sign

Will the humble be exalted
And the mighty laid low
Everything so precious
Do you have to let it go?
What more can I do?
Is that fire in the distance?
What do you want from me?

What do you want from me?
There’s nothing left to give
The cave is empty
No footprints here
On the ground, deserted
Everything laid waste
In my mouth
The taste of ashes
The bitter harvest
The high and mighty
Laughing at us
What do you want from me?
