Tonight the earth opened up
And swallowed quite a lot of all the pretty things
That don't mean anything to me nor to you

To anyone who likes the feel
Of cold wind blowing from the sea
And dead leaves falling from the trees
Whirling through the air like rotten vessels on their way

Warm rain kept pouring down the streets
Submersed in rising water
And all the clouds were looking down
Upon the people seeking shelter

They are afraid of being carried far away
To some place where they feel they don't belong
But deep inside they feel that maybe any place
No matter how far away is better than home

And no one realized the gods in heaven
Were giving all of them a reason to go
And no one expected the water
That now reached up to their throats

Swallowed by the earth, they disappear
Swallowed by the earth so do we all
Swallowed by the earth, they disappear
Swallowed by the earth so do we all
