wait…

what’dya see out there…

nothin’…

it’s pitch black…no wonder…probably couldn’t even see your own hand in front of your face it’s so dark…

no-one else is up…still too early…people still asleep…I should be asleep…

you…you never sleep…always up messin’ ’round in the kitchen…or readin’ some kinda book…or lookin’ out the window…just starin’ into the night…the blackness of it all…and you see nothin’…yet you still look…

hear things…birds chirpin’…train goin’ by…car drivin’ down the street sometimes…bus makin’ its stops…

but you can’t see anyhting…just hear…almost like bein’ blind…livin’ in a world of sound…why do you look out there…I mean…if you can’t see anything what’s the point of lookin’…

waitin’ on the sun…

won’t be up for hours…

I’ll wait…I’m always waitin’…

you’re a patient man…you wait on a lotta things…

yep…

the sun…jobs to come along…waitin’ for Christ himself to come back…you just wait…

hear that…

what…

wind’s kickin’ up…gonna be a storm…been waitin’ onna storm…haven’t had a good rainfall for quite some time now…been so hot…maybe it’ll cool things down…

ain’t nothin’ gonna cool down…it’s July…always hot in July…followed by misery in August…nothin’ good comes of summer…

need summer…just like you need the rest of the seasons…time for death…time for re-birth…time for things to grow…time for things to ripen…go out to some of these farms…along the highway you’ll see nothin’ but corn…rows and rows of corn a mile high…and you have to wait till the right time to pick it…doesn’t happen over night…takes months…farmers know…they know ’bout seasons…they wait…

and you…

I’m just a fool lookin’ out into darkness…
