Atlas


The sky is falling sideways
Atlas must've tripped
The Earth is going haywire
The stars are all amiss
The wind but a breath
Though the tornadoes are howling
And the cave in the dark
And the monster who's growling
Both are here
But one is gone
And you have to think
Or all be strong
Watch by the window's a'crowding
I never saw you there
But I can tell that you've been
You make the air ripple
You make the Earth spin
You hold up my sky
And I don't know why
But every time I think of you
I cry
