The news says Jakarta is sinking,
its in Indonesia.

There were a couple of pictures,
of some cranes, digging

and a picture of a couple of kids
around some thing collapesed

My heart wants to save them.
I am helpless to save them
I am helpless to save me
I am too poor to save them
I am too poor to save myself.

I can only love them

Forgive me Jakarta,
my love can not save me either.

The Great Fire of 17

The winds came and with it
gave life to the fire or 17

it took
and took

Schools closed down
Work closed down

The mountains
stood their ground
the wind pushed

at first one
then two
then three

there were fires the size of New York

But celebrities began to lose
as the poor began to lose....

When the rich lose
like the poor lose

let them mourn together
let them weep together
let them be equal finally
not only in the eyes
of the fire
of the lord
but each other

All the way

I can see all the way from here.

seems pretty far, from here.

I can see myself there, 
from here.

Lets go I say,
but you got things to do.

Lets go I say 
but nobodys around

Lets go 
 I say to myself...

I can see all the way from ..
 it will still be there tomorrow.

Yes it will be there....tomorrow.
It always be there tomorrow.
but its go time!

Because  lord oh lord
I may not a be here tomorrow.
