When the planes blacked out the sun
and the submarines emerged from the darkened waterside
everyone ran to the hills to see for the last time
what our world looked like when it was dying

And our house was the last to fall
we'd seen all the other families walking past our street
with their flocks of children, murdered pasts and bruised feet,
dust of unknown streets settled on their faces.

One morning I saw you there.
And I called you from my window behind the oak,
you were walking steady and older, did you hear your name?
My father stopped me, my brother cried
but we all had to do the same.

By the time we left our ruins
the day was glowing and the light bathed the oak leaves
like in the morning you held my hand to guide me through your dreams.
"Let's run to the church and pretend it's a starship".

Cathedrals in the sun,
will future days be like ponds reflecting
cathedrals in the rain.
