Voices in the rain; NY and Muzaffarabad
Will school be out tomorrow due to all this flooding?
Did the earthquake bring down my school or is it still standing?
Rain; my plans are in trouble!
Aaah water to parched lips; trickling through the rubble
Mom, soccer game's cancelled due to rain.
Only ten some miles to walk so don't complain.
What, another detour! I'm already late.
Wading through the water coz the bridge's swept away.
Couldn't call you hon, telephone lines are down
Can just someone hold my hand,... anyone?
Tires skidding, got to go slow
Why don't I feel my feet anymore?
Relief! Rain at last; my lawn'll grow.
Death toll'll rise and relief'll come slow
Visibilty is low so the plane won't land
What's this I feel, a leg or a hand?
Lazy rainy weather, just right for a slumber
Faint cries for help, there from down under
Cookies with a hot cuppa cocoa, and a blanket for my feet
orphaned corpses; no one to bury them; a scavenger's treat.
All's right with the world, good will's reigning
All's wrong with the world, there's nothing remaining.
