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