  1. The Farmer

From the album Cicada Rhythm

Lyrics

it won’t take long for them to see
that i once was from the same seed
until the flood came pouring through
it rained for days because of you
the land was dry, scorched and blazed
the cattle were thin, no grass to graze
i've had enough, god damn the sky
why should a farmer such as i
die in the dirt just living to work from dust to dust

i had only days to pack up the farm
with a smile on my face as i locked up the barn
you sure showed me, no more disbelief
i am just a man, existence is brief
consider me beat, broken and tried
but why would you give to only let die?
so i've had enough, god damn the sky
why should a farmer such as i
die in the dirt just living to work from dust to dust

i've heard of a seed that grows in the dark
and at the end of its life it shines just one spark
no fancy show, the final bang
it gives all it has before you ever knew it came
just a glimpse of a thought, a shadow of a dream
but it was the first shade of light that i've ever seen
and i take it for granted but that’s how its goes
the heart of man's got plenty room to grow
