A Dream of Water
Colin Stetson Lyrics


There were those, who didn’t run,
there were those, who couldn’t take it,
there were those, who stayed in the city,
where was it? where did it go?
There were those who laid their bodies down,
there were those, who took our knifes,
there were those, who kissed the grey skies,
there were those, who only knew only the sound of their own voices,
There were those, who knew the rules,
there were those, who freed there bodies,
there were those, who couldn’t take it,
there were others on their own,
what was it? what was it?
There were strangers and conman,
there were those, who lived in the cross space,
there were people lighting candles,
there were people going crazy,
there were those, who walked the beach,
what war is that, what time could this be?
There were those, who didn’t run,
there were those, who couldn’t take it,
there were those, who stayed in the city,
what was it, where did it go?
There were those, who laid their bodies down,
there were those, who took our knifes,
there were those, who kissed the grey skies,
there were those, who only knew only the sound of their own voices,
There were those who, knew the rules,
there were those who, freed there bodies,
there were those who, couldnt take it,
there were others on their own,
what was it, what was it?
There were strangers and conman,
there were those, who lived in the cross space,
there were people lighting candles,
there were people going crazy,
there were those, who walked the beach,
what war is that? what war is that? what time could this be?

The first time I heard this music, I was on my break at work. There are some woods at the edge of the parking lot. It was dark and windy. I stood there staring at the pine trees for what felt like a long time. The headlights of cars passing by made weird shadows on the trees. I felt strange when i returned.

I picture the creeping progression of the United State’s society over those wishing to be free from their laws as they headed west further and further until reaching the ocean
