Song for Mathias (lyrics)

Running before me
never a straight line
don't hold it against me
I tried to get there on time

Chorus:
Over the mountain
a slope to the sea
behind cries & the shouting
help is following me
following me

Heaven is lonely
hell is the place to be
star of truth rises slowly
but who will look down & see

Chorus:

Night Interlude (voice in wood)

Before & behind me
I watch their torches shine
If I move on them slowly
the only hands burnt are mine

Chorus:

Wind through bushes; a lost & disconsolate banjo plays out.......
