Go Peacefully

Go peacefully into that night
don’t let the shadows hide you
turn your face toward the moonlight
Your day is over,
this day is over, this day is over.
He kneels beside me
I touch his sleeve
See the pot of honey coloured liquid he is stirring
then his eyes close, his day is over
his day is over
The night begins for us.
So we run, run, run run, run run run
So we run run run run run run run
We run in numbers
We are hunters, too
While you are sleeping,
we watch you.
So for us desert foxes
the night must end
the eagle owl is watching as we tiptoe over cold sand
out night is over, our night is over, our night is over.
And her eyes blink slowly
she’s palest white
locked inside she doesn’t feel the pain that’s on the outside
our side
her day is over, her night is over, her time is over.
