The sky is falling, it hits my head
Is this a dream or am I dead?
I have lost me, somewhere in the street
Kicking cans and chicken bones, clouds hit my feet.
The hen, she cackled out the truth
My kingdom come, I’m still the fox
But I’ve nothing for my roof
The trees are cracking, the air’s abstracting
The bushes from the beasts
Where now do you see me?
Laid on a slate for the crows to pick at
Don’t forget my soul
I’m dissolving, and the sky is falling all around me
Am I dreaming? I must be losing my mind
So now wherever will my children go?
Tumbling out to see
The world around them is a leaf
Of a page that has been erased
Is it rain that falls and bites my tongue?
Or liquid in my lungs
Or the sweat of sun melting stone
In the street beneath my nimble bones
How the hell did I sink so low?
Seeping through the sea
The world around me is a dream
That repeats as if made for me
Is it salt that cracks and stings my lips
Or splinters left from the crow
The dunes of sand break my fall
Though they won’t save me from it all
Beyond the grave, her friends are waiting
To skin me down to earth
I’m still craving, the taste of feathers that take me to the gates
Please forgive me, I’m just a fox stuck inside a hole.
Flee now for your life
The boatman comes
Step the stones of purgatory
You must save yourself.
