Ride-Out The Wind

On a whisper or a prayer
But, never just stand,
On a stair blocking-out the light!

Migrate to anywhere in the open air…
But, don’t just stand idle, there!
Blocking-out the light!
Ride-out the wind…

Without a care!
A whisper or a prayer
But, never just stand, there
Playing, solitaire…

Halfway, to nowhere!
Ride-on a whisper or a prayer
Yeah, take to the air!
And, migrate anywhere!

But, don’t just stand, there
Blocking-out the light!
…I’m expecting, here…
Yeah, take to the air!

Ride-out the wind…
Without; any fanfare!
On a wing and a prayer
And, levitate like a leaf spirit.

To every corner of belief
That hasn’t
Over shadowed, imagination!
Or your soul’s own wilful destruction!

Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
