Someone's gotta hold the ladder

from by Old Earth



She went out ahead so that the rest of us could stay

Weave until the fires die and lay in wait for day

Something else took hold of us, it must've been the wake

Nothing's breathing loud enough to call it wrong by name

I wouldn't be on the other side of day, and
you won't catch ME wandering

After all the quiet falls and walls are washed away

Nothing there was holding us and nothing true decays

Fire this and fire that and fire comes to lay

With arms around the room's allowed to fall and burn away

It was hot
but not enough

I wouldn't be on the underside of day, and
YOU won't catch me wandering
