God’s Tears Europa

Written in Prague, 1994, for Auslander und Staatenlose. Performed by the Fierce Throat Choir.


I uphold the world
I raise my fists
I turn the key
I fight for you
I die for you
I long for you
God’s tears Europa
Take the weight,
the weight
I know no pain
I take the pain
You open the doors
Fill our streets
with glassy eyes
with glassy hearts
Looks as though
they’re here to stay
I take the weight
Hose me down
I shine for you
God’s tears Europa
I uphold the world
I raise my fists
I turn the key
I fight for you
I die for you
I long for you
God’s tears Europa
Still the pain
I face the world

know me
know me
know me
know me
Forget me not
Forsake me not
Carve me out
I stand by you
Carve me up
I stand by you
Would I leave
