Track Name: Bellow
Screams into the waterfall, you can't hear his woeful call
Here's a man not dead at all, although he's surely tryin'
Walks into the dusty sun, a hobo's work is never done
Offers water to the one whose eyes are dry from cryin'

He works the mud beneath his heels, with the migrants in the fields
Needs to know how Jesus feels, upon his bed of straw
Now many men may scoff and say, "a hobo's life is thrown away"
What is the price they pay, to have a sense of awe

Bellow, while the wind wraps round your head
No one needs to hear this song but he
All your life you've prayed for a song to raise the dead
A song to lift these shackles from your feet

Never wagged his tongue in vain, never played the bitter game
When he prayed it shook like rain, falling on the sea
Laughed at men of circumstance, tossed his body when he danced
Played his best cards at romance, but he was always free


So gentleman let's now confuse what we believe to be the truth
Got a lot left to loose, yet we are surely dying
He swam into the open sea, echoing a symphony
Carrying the song of he whose eyes are dry from crying
