'Abacus'


Counting, counting, counting all these peolpe did.
For they counted the days.
They counted the nights.
They counted their breath.
They counted their sleep.
They counted their dreams.
They counted all things.
Counting, counting, counting all their life these people did.

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
