Blank manifestos

The rustling of leaves

The lives of the scarecrows

The wind in the trees

The unnoticed rapture

A simple refrain:

“How is your master, and what is his name?”

How can what’s lost be saved?

How can our debts be paid?



You fall asleep and you fall apart

You fall in love and it breaks your heart

To a sinner on Monday, it’s a long way to Sunday

We sleep with the dead



An ancient infraction

A common excuse

A joyful reception

A loving rebuke

How can what’s lost be saved?

How can our debts be paid?



You fall asleep and you fall apart

You fall in love and it breaks your heart

To a sinner on Monday, it’s a long way to Sunday

We sleep with the dead
