Tremor

©1994 Steve Macdonald


Shake
Fissures down below
Pressure builds so slow
Sudden CRACK
Then go-

Shake
Shift and move
Ground pours, you lose
It's all dark,
You know-

Refrain
Run and hide, go get away
Find a safer place to stay.
Pray the walls won't give away
To crush

Movement stops
Settle in the dust
Creeping sounds and gusts
Wind rises;
Oh-

Shake
Shift and twist
Concrete cracks, then lists
It's not over
No-

Refrain

Go
Get out to the street
Run fast, breathe deep
But there's nowhere
To go.

But there's nowhere
To go.

But there's nowhere
To go.
