The Old King (from "The Window") – David Elias

Hear them cheering for your dying day
See them wipe your feet with dust and clay
Never mind the near ones where they lay
Memories of clear ones there they stay
There they stay

See them clear away your open grave
Watch them lower you down into place
Night will pass eternal into space
While the sun burns coins laid on your face
On your face

Consciousness returns to summer's eyes
Windmills spin their patterns thorugh the skies
Heavy air returns to times gone by
No one meets your gaze or even tries
Even tries

Crows in pairs are sentries to your doom
Watchers of the seeds you plant too soon
Blackining the sky they leave no reoom
For the sun to shine down on your tomb
