lyrics

5. Fatherlight

We are leaving our time now.
We are leaving our time now.
There are places where time moves more slowly than here.
We honor all four directions,
East, West, North, South…
– Robert Bly

In the fatherlight
I lost my compass and I lost my sight.
At the fireside
I sat too close and then I burned my eyes
And was it temperament
that kept us from saying all the things we meant?
fatherlight
fatherlight
fatherlight
Hear the city call,
with faster highways and with alcohol.
Can we synchronize,
with time so different, generation-wise?
And was it temperament
that kept us from saying all the things we meant?
In the countryside,
(so many things now I cannot tell you)
I lost my country when I left your side.
(the broken bones of a shattered world view)
Now you think I’m gone,
(and in the ER lights I saw you)
but take my hand and let me prove you wrong….
(reaching up like you thought you might break through)
fatherlight
fatherlight

And we also honor the fifth direction
the vertical one,
which is in us
today, here.
