Chariot across the sky (Lyrics/poem)

Sitting watching the girl with yoke on her shoulder

Struggling along the world’s biggest boulder

Who knew I’d know just how she feels

Dragging the darkness along behind of me

.

I sit still, there’s nothing there, just distance

Hypnotised, half dead inside, under the influence,

And the clouds conspire, dust in your eyes

You still shine bright,

So show me a sign:

.

Race your chariot across the sky

Spread your light, for my delight,

Pass right through the crescent moon

Change your tune, like I knew you could;

Then journey to the waning moon

Where one day I will meet with you,

But not too soon;

And don’t you dare try look behind

Just wave… wave goodbye…

.

Sitting watching the girl with yoke on her shoulder

Struggling along the world’s biggest boulder

Who knew I’d be the one serving

Broken monument most undeserving

.

So many tales, can no longer tell which are the true ones

Hope and promise lost in a dark coloured ocean

Won’t you use your power on me

Move me like the land and sea

Show me a sign:

.

Race your chariot across the sky

Spread your light, for my delight,

Pass right through the crescent moon

Change your tune, like I knew you could;

Then journey to the waning moon

Where one day I will meet with you,

But not too soon;

And don’t you dare try look behind

Just wave… wave goodbye…

.

When the work is not viewed and shared, the artist loses hope, and the birth of new art ceases to be imagined
