why would you ever land,
once you learn to reach the sky?
what can you hope to find,
in the dust that air denies?
give me the clouds dark and haunting,
the wind and hail and rain;
give me the unforgiving lightning,
and the chance the land will change;
give me the sun ever bearing
on my shoulders and my back;
give me the thinnest of air,
where I always seem to black--
