lyrics

When the house lifted to the sky
It was not like in that movie
The screaming of the wind
And the splintering of the wood
There’s no place that is safe
If you’re not inside a shelter
I wedged into a doorway
Hid my face under my hood
And prayed

Summer is the season
And we’ve all been through it plenty
The whole town hits the basement
When the siren starts to sound
But this time there was silence
Just the funnel, out of nowhere
Trees, cars, people
In the path where it touched down
All razed

Up inside
I can’t describe it
Roiling swirl of dirt and noise
A thousand tiny darts attack you
Breathe
As best you can

Classes started late this fall
In trailers in the back lot
I’m out for a while
Gonna join the class below
Seems unreal that life goes on
As if it didn’t happen
People say with time
All the signs of it
Will slowly fade
