Lyrics

Man's Mark

Evergreens and moss tinged stone, patterned lawns and sad longing.
Mourners morning, noon, and night decry the bleak, extinguished light
of a life burned through.

In final rest, unending sleep, Man’s imprint stands,
the better to keep a mark upon the world.

Ages hence a name recalls, distraught, low walls and unturned stone;
legacy passed and work unknown.
Worked stone, worked land, worked metal, wrought by Man.
A mark upon the world.

In final rest, unending sleep, Man’s imprint stands,
the better to keep a mark upon the world.

Fragile Heart of Clay

Fragile heart of clay, each day cracks appear in the glaze.
Like sea-glass pitted and dulled with age,
a precious bird in a sandstone cage.
A lifeless rose, sprinkled with dew, that beats in vain--
longing for you.
Why can’t you see my clay heart on my sleeve?

Endless spinning wheel, no potter's hands can remake how I feel.
Your careless smile, your gentle wave, an empty hope is saved.
Somber dreams of love, lifeless gleams of a love-lush world above.
My aching soul I’ll bear in full,
these fruitless dreams that I yet dream of you.
