(liner notes for track 5)
They were coming home.
They were coming home to us,
where we were waiting
so proudly and assuredly.
Riding a comet
and smiling, sometimes laughing,
their humanness suddenly struck
a chord deep within us
as tragedy began to unfold,
seemingly without their knowing.
as we watched the skies in desperation,
in a single breath out
they flew higher
than they had ever flown before,
and our lives came crashing down,
