Into The Valley

Written by: James Fraser

To listen to our elders, and experience, the experience
All it takes in Tornado Alley, in sky view believe it

This is where we see the gloom in cobalt steel blues
Has a colour ever been acclaimed so much on the news

It's changes in shade, even whilst the minutes lapse
Once darker becomes her wrath, in touch within her clasp

She even takes our images, with these flashes of captured view
Alluring us in invitation, then allowing her strength to spew

    I see nothing different to the decades of years I've been
    Maybe it's now in view, to this modern human circus theme

    I can still recall the past, when giants roamed the earth
    And yet they have still to complain, in the country of their birth

    I'm an entity of being out there, do I apologise and feel my course
    For this I'm unable to answer for which I'll never feel remorse

Upon rising from the shelter, storm damage explodes my view
Upturned monsters of the highway, skeletal trees stand untrue

Picket fences penetrate tree trunks that have withstood so many years
Assassinated by she called nature, guaranteed there are no tears

School buses in dented show, but allowing it's kids to be safe
But her anger still continues to flow, neighbour hoods safety depraved

    I see nothing different to the decades of years I've been
    Maybe it's now in view, to this modern human circus theme

    I can still recall the past, when giants roamed the earth
    And yet they have still to complain, in the country of their birth

    I'm an entity of being out there, do I apologise and feel my course
    For this I'm unable to answer for which I'll never feel remorse

Into the valley we have ventured, amidst the land of the free
Being here we were but strangers, for we culled the ones that could see
