1. Into The Crowd

From the recording The Rookery

In cart Not available Out of stock


there are lessons in the lives of those
who walk further than the rest of us
there are those who travel roads
we cannot follow or can’t see
and they carry a small light
into the still and heavy night
for every one who makes it home
there’s one who’s swallowed

into the crowd, into the battle
into the loud and raging streets
into the arms of some idea
from which they cannot find relief

there are those whose pain is hunger
there are those who live in need
there are those who work as slaves
and there are prisoners to be freed
from the factories and fields
to where the desperation yields
there is a loving hand
and a will of steel to follow
