When you wake up in the morning and the sunlight burns your eyes,
say, “Fuck the world! I’m going to shut these ugly blinds.”
Now see me smile wide when I realize that it’s over—
that the sun is far away.
And see me by the river on the highway shoulder—
see the night swallow the day.
All our bodies went missing in the night.
Now I’m standing by the water, the house is not too far.
And old man and his daughter—they wave from a rusted car.
Now see me gather wood in search of a fire
and see my friends do the same.
Now see me wipe the mud from an old truck tire
and then hear them call my name.
So, why should I be sad that nothing lasts forever?
I’m just happy that things last at all!
A day spent living by the bitter river—
in its wake we hear it call.
All our bodies went missing in the night.
