Escape from Thebes



I escaped Thebes
to find a place
that wipes my tears


That hugs me tight
in the dark night

That calms my fears


That pats my back
when I come last

That sings my tunes


I escaped Thebes



Uprooted trees
can bear no fruit,
can grow no leaves


The living dead
can touch no stars,
fulfill no dreams


I yearn for Thebes
