Rapture of Riddley Walker

Went to the doctor, to see what could be given.
He said, "Sorry, but you've got to do your own livin'."
Went to the pastor, to hear what he would say.
He said, "Sorry, son, come back later some time after judgment day."

There is no safe way out of here. No passage below the dungeon.
No mother ship will save you. So goes the rapture of Riddley Walker.

Churchyard was empty, schoolyard was bare.
Wind in the streets, wind in the air.
Pockets of diamonds, nothing to buy.
Scream out hello and get no reply.
Victims of zombies convene in the park
While any man with dignity makes an easy mark.
Heaven is a long ways away. Heaven is a long, long, long, long ways away.

There is no safe way out of here. No passage below the dungeon.
No mothership will come save you. The rapture of Riddley Walker.

How many-cools of Addom? Party cools of stone?
Hart of the wood shadder. Eusa roam.

Drop-John been climbing on Riddley's back. Follow the power, a natural fact.
Orfing & Ardship, hardship is plain. Hardly Goodparley is ever the same.
Shadows and phantom's convene in the snow.
Among the low whispers are voices you know.
Heaven is a long ways away. Heaven is a long, long, long, long ways away.

There is no safe way out of here. No passage below the dungeon.
No mothership will come save you. The rapture of Riddley Walker.

How many-cools of Addom? Party cools of stone?
Hart of the wood shadder. Eusa roam.
