Elijah

This song is by Sister 7 and appears on the album Wrestling Over Tiny Matters (2000).

Elijah weeps to the pavement
Hands outstretched and worn
Everyday is getting harder
But what does it matter and does it matter

She says, "My love, oh, could you help me?"
But it resolves to nothing

Her words cry out
Like a flock of black birds
She says could you spare
He doesn't bother

Fallen once, now falling faster
We'll dissolve to laughter
'Cause we're all here but hardly notice
We're not getting better

I wake up early
Grab my things and I'm out the door
Everyday I'm working harder
To keep up the payments and the rise and the fall

Up above the carpet clouds perspective changes
'Cause we're wrestling over tiny matters

The majesty
Of all we forget
I'm stuck on a jet plane
And I remember

Fallen once, now falling faster
We'll dissolve to laughter
'Cause we're all here but hardly notice
We're not getting better, getting better

Don't remember

Fallen once, now falling faster
We'll dissolve to laughter
'Cause we're all here but hardly notice
We're not getting any better, no

The sky's been screaming, we've taken over
So self-important and overdone
Some believe that we're all angels
But we don't remember

Don't remember
Don't remember
Don't remember
Don't remember
Don't remember
