Stand by the water, the
Alluring rapid water
Someone might see you there,
Might see you naked
Standing rotten at the thought you run
Hard with the stranger chasing
Follows you close, he
Follows you home, you
Stand by the window, the
Lights off the curtain cracked
Stranger's still circling, still
Inspecting nook and cranny
Hide in the chill cellar
Will he or won't she find you
Crash from above, you,
Sounds from above, you
Laugh and you cry, you laugh,
So frightened, laughing, crying
Creaking on wood steps, earth
floor and a tin clatter
There's where your love hits you
Makes you ashamed and shaking
Tickles and scolds you
Flattens and folds you


Hits arms of your father,
Your king and great creator
Wisdom and cruel power
Cruel as a wayward daughter
Serves you a love seeking
Not but indentured service
All of your life
So hit and be righteous
Oh close up my body cause
My body sole decides
Board up my window cause
Who needs a window?
When a storm filled with nightmares
None but the steady moving
Shake on the hinges,
Shaking your bones, oh
You make me silent love,
Oh you're so stern and patient
Follow me westward
Back whence the power came
You climb in my body
Fight with my empty body
Power and glory, showered with stones, so
Crouch by the water, the
Alluring, rapid water
Baby might see you,
Might see your naked cower,
Stand up and face her
She could with all your power
Follow her closely,
Follow her home
