STRIKE ME

Screaming back to the storm.

“I am here.”

I AM STILL YOUR SERVANT

AND I AM STILL HERE.

Muddy water up to your waist,

Grandfather, please tell me you did.

Grandfather, please tell me you screamed

Back to the storm

“I AM STILL HERE.”

I have to believe you did…

I need to believe you stood up.

I need to believe

You had the strength

To scream back to the storm

IT’S ME, STANDING IN THE TALL GRASS

IT’S ME, WITH MY HANDS IN YOUR FACE

IT’S ME, WHISTLING BACK TO THE DEMON

“I AM HERE.”

TELL ME, GRANDFATHER, TELL ME YOU SCREAMED BACK TO THE STORM

LIKE I’M SCREAMING AT YOU NOW

PIECE OF MOTHER…

TELL ME YOU ARE STILL HERE. 

STRIKE ME DOWN.

LET ME FEEL THAT YOU ARE HERE,

I AM STILL YOUR SERVANT,

STOP IGNORING ME 

PLEASE, PLEASE TELL ME

You are still here.
