about

A dream scenario of a million people on 2 sides of a chasm reaching across to grasp hands in a massive tug of war to pull the divide shut before falling in themselves.

lyrics

thanksgiving
and the earth feels flat
just like this black or white table
we gather at
to sit with friends
think of the conversations lost
at the other end

a million human dream
millions of hands grasp across the ravine
on each bank our heals dig in
as we tug to close the seam
how we've been bleeding
rivers

that keep our sins afloat
a flood of blood tossing a tiny boat
filled with a million migrants
their language stuck in their throat
encircling our privilege
in a stormy moat

a million human dream
millions of hands grasp across the ravine
on each bank our heals dig in
as we tug to close the seam
how we've been bleeding
rivers
