the weeping city

All rest but the weeping city / is lying awake / what are all these birth pains / making her quake / what came of the rebel child / too wild to shake / all rest but the city is lying awake / all rest but the weeping city / all run but the dying river / is down on its knees / what came of the possibilities / who said they could make it happen / however they please / all run but the river is down on its knees / all rest but the weeping city / all run but the dying river / all rise but the shaky eagle / is back on the ground / each time it happens / it’s harder to have to come down / each night it’s the same old story / out running around / all rise but the eagle is back on the ground / all rest but the weeping city / all run but the dying river / all rise but the eagle is back on the ground / all rest but the weeping city / all run but the dying river / all rise but the eagle is back on the ground.
