Lyrics:

A child cries into the wind:
‘Now I wait; I cannot bear 
longing that turns my blood
to molten lead.  I am absent here;
I am nowhere.
 
‘Stranger voices from far away
spit sulphur threats from mouths
of nameless fire.  Sleepless I watch
for hate to come, smear the burnt soul
of the broken land.’
 
A child cries into the wind:
‘In the comfortless lap of the world
I sing.’
