lyrics

The Cliffs of the Guadalupe
© 2017 Leo Papa

The cliffs of the Guadalupe are carved from thin air
Reflected in waters that lead to nowhere
Stripped of all culture like a heavenly stair
In an everyday mystical musing laid bare

The ranchers and oilers have gotten their share
Filled her with signs saying you can't go there
Circling vultures devour their fare
It's an everyday mystical musing laid bare

What have I sacrificed, who will I be
Fooling myself, living dangerously
Who have I sacrificed, what will I be
Telling myself, that I'm trying to be free

In cars on our cell phones we carve up our days
And drive through this hell of a concrete highway
The earth and the sky form a permanent haze
And we don't realize that we live in a maze

What have I sacrificed, who will I be
Fooling' myself, living dangerously
Who have I sacrificed, what will I be
Telling myself, that I'm trying, to be free

So I sit by the banks of this river and stare
Swift and the mockingbird dart here and there
Most graceful of herons reminds me to care
In an everyday mystical musing laid bare

And the cliffs of the Guadalupe are carved
From thin air
