The Cold-Fax Prayer Project
By these steps
we won’t forget
feelings of down and out dept
and regret. Death by step.
On the steps
about the lives
given step by step. Death by step.
Start here, start now
finding the shallowness of sand
No tears- here and now
the darkness of the inner man
the sinner man that drowns me
woman and man- hard to understand
Step by step from the school
Stoic in their thirst to rule
it’s a sewer, we are held against our will
to be tossed and killed- in this city. step by step… death by step.
So hard to imagine that it could ever go this way
So hard to comprhend living this way
So hard as we grab in- the cost of the day
till you see the outine of- one you love.
By these steps- we walk this prison cell block
On these steps- we are called to be living rocks
On these steps- all to real, lie, cheat and steal
and we take in the stench, evidence collect
step by step. Death by step.
