My exit, observed, my homesickness, absurd, I said "water," expecting a word would satisfy my thirst! talking all about the second and third when I haven't understood the first. jonah, where's that boat going- your ship set with eager sail? there's a swirling storm soon blowing, and no use, fishermen, in rowing from a consecrated wale! just like the clouds bring a darkness and a hard rains gunna fall I felt the crowds bring a loneliness and a hard rain's gonna fall. she always weighed me down, but, afraid I might need her, I dragged her around (it's best to keep close sackcloth and ash in a whitewashed town) she wore that phony smile on her face, I guess I like a bandageon a wounded place while I kept the keys to every old lock just in case, rehearsed indifference tossed aside out narrow arms spread wide, "what unseen pen etched eternal things on the hearts of humankind - but never let them in our minds?" like the clouds bring a darkness and a hard rain's gonna fall and all my laughter ends in emptiness and a hard rain's gonna fall. my every medicine caused more illness and a hard rain's gonna fall but until I let you go I didn't know. you were never mine at all but now I spend my days in ever-increasingly complicated ways convinving myself of the rightness of each word I say my exit. unfair if unobserved! ya sabur subhannallahi a'udhu billahi minash-shaitanir-rajim. al-hamdu lilllah. bismillahir rahmanir rahim
