Skyline by Milwaukee Youth Center Choir

it used to be the sun shined up and down this river all day long
now it gets dark around two
I remember 1,350 years ago
tallest thing in sight, the wild orchards in bloom
then the people they came
and the people they built
mountains were not so jagged
as the things that they raised
and the boxes they filled
and the waters run ragged
supernatural winds at intersections
no you can't see the stars or their reflections
only lit up empty skyrise after skyrise in the skyline

skyline, blocking the light out

it used to be the moonlight made this valley into silver
and the river was mercury
now the glow of the streetlamps, iron, steel, concrete, glass
I know it's painted in gray for me
and the people are born
and the people remain
so the boxes get higher
hold the sky in their form
wipe it out with their name
at the tip of each spire
supernatural winds at intersections
no you can't see the stars or their reflections
only lit up empty skyrise after skyrise in the skyline

skyline, blocking the light out
