Sat at my window watched the world
Wake up this morning
Purple sky slowly turning golden,
Distant elms so orange
You'd swear they're burning

All this flowing water
Has got my mind wandering
Do you ever finally reach
A point of knowing
Or do you just wake up one day
And say I am going?

What will I tell you
When you ask me why I'm crying?
Will I point above
At the Red Tail gracefully soaring
Or down to below where its prey
Is quietly trembling?

Two thousand years ago Jesus is left is left there hanging
Purple sky slowly turning golden
Cowards at his feet loudly laughing
Loved ones stumbling homeward
Their worlds reeling
Red Tail above my head quietly soaring
Water turns from ice, creek is roaring
He says enough of all this shit, I am going
