Revolve

Would you say
It is possible
For a man to fly
To the moon

Would you say
It’s achievable
For a whole nation
To rise from the sand

Can’t believe
It is happening
Just see the shadows
In my room

But Somewhere
They are waging war
And it’s hard to fall back
To sleep again

And we all
Revolve
The same way

If you stay
Where you are
You still revolve

If I could see
Your face close to me
Hear your story
Of what went on

If I could feel
Your story in my head
I could understand
What’s going on

And we all
Revolve
The same way

If you stay
Where you are
You still revolve

You’re still spinning
While you wonder how

You’re still spinning
When you push your plough

You’re still spinning
When you’re with your spouse

You’re still spinning
When troopers burn down your house

You’re still spinning
When you’re getting styled

You’re still spinning
When you bury your child

You’re still spinning
Sharing your last breath

You’re still spinning
Dying the Martyr’s Death

And we all
Revolve
The same way

If you stay
Where you are
You still revolve
