the beat sick and bruised day

this light’s on the house
the house the light’s off in
a flight from China Southern
a red-eye from Berlin
too far away in
to ferried away
more lights circling
the beat sick and bruised day

and we won’t say a word
though everyone’s heard
no, we won’t say peep
we’re hide and hope sheep
and our God’s a poor shepherd
and a life here is cheap
