What Beautiful Things

Leaves are falling, the wolves are calling

And death goes with them.

The light is waning the night will reign o’er me

But in the heart of the deepest dark, the light is shining

I lift my head from my dying bed and sing

Oh what beautiful things I see

The lunatics with the fire-sticks and the deadly rhythm,

They reprimand us with reckless savagery.

But in the midst of apocalypse, the dove brings tidings

I lift my eyes to the the azure skies and sing.

Oh what beautiful things I see

We’re so surprised when we realize that we’re deftly skilled in

The very vices we swear off violently

Still at the crux of the worst in us, the hope is hiding.

I lift my gaze from my wicked ways and sing

Oh what beautiful things I see
