from by Plateau Below



Sleeping by the riverside
I've been staying here a fortnight
I'm just a useless smear of skin and bone
Bearded, poor, and getting old
I'm probably ready to die

Starving by the riverside
I’m just waiting here for my wife
She went and ran off with another jack
But I'm sure she'll come running back
Can't remember what her eyes look like

Praying by the riverside
I'm just waiting here for my god
He said he'd take me when I’m ready
And Christ Jesus am I ready or not?
No life needs taken like mine

Sleeping in the shade outside
I'm just hiding away from that hot
O’ people when that light comes over me
My body's sad, old soul will leave
And join that sun in the sky

And through sun and moon
Summer breeze and snow and showers
My body will soon wilt and bloom as flowers
