Coal Boulder.

Coal Boulder

Coal Boulder, red hot and black
burning none too cleanly.
Coal Boulder roll on back
well, you crushed a new Life today and no you won't look back

I was standing simple
I was standing proud
I was hand in hand
I was head in clouds

there were men here
shoveling heat long before us
shoveling heat
where we now scrape our feet.

This temple now stands around us
It stands for fire long gone out as do I
there is Life here, frozen for us
with diamonds set in soil

Slipping up now could be catastrophic
I'd be a sack of meat here at your feet
but silly Coal Boulder
if you were but older
we'd be heavy burnt and black

there's a house now abandoned on a frozen moore
I could not ask for more
there's a pine, we found that river
I could not ask for more
You kept the time in mind
I kept the road in mine
I wish you'd ask for more
there's my coat
and there's the door....

I am standing solid
you are standing cold
the path is fearsome
but I'm growing bolder
I'm standing simple
and I stand alone
you've shown the path now
and I'm going home

Coal Boulder
please grow colder
Coal Boulder,
please Coal Boulder

Coal Boulder
please Coal Boulder
Coal Boulder
go on home.
