lyrics

How long since the hot, hot sun caressed my skin
How long since the rain fell soft and cool
How long since I seen another one of my kind
No familiar face but mine
When I drink from the river
I can see myself wither
I had a dream last night of bones in a hill side, bones in a hillside
But the sky is harder than the cold, cold ground
Oh, I'll lay me down
I think I'll lay me down
Choking clouds of smoke corrupt the precious air
Scavengers are scattered in my wake
How long since the soil beneath my feet gave way
Swallowed all by black and grey
A planet in waiting
And the colors are fading
had a dream last night of bones in a hill side, bones in a hillside
But the sky is harder than the cold, cold ground
Oh, I'll lay me down
I think I'll lay me down
A planet in waiting
And the colors are fading
had a dream last night of bones in a hill side, bones in a hillside
But the sky is harder than the cold, cold ground
Oh, I'll lay me down
I think I'll lay me down
And the children yet to be
Wonder what's become of me
