The Lyrics

The lyrics, hopefully, speak for all who were touched by the tragedy of this event.

And it all happened in only ten minutes.

Four Years After

Desert heat autumn nights

Busy sidewalks Vegas lights

The 91 is heeding signs 

Lambs in order, forging lines

Country sounds are in the queue

The lambs compressed but they get through

Foretelling of a coming rue?

A brooding cauldron, no one knew                                         

 

And here we are, four years after     

Trailing tears, no more laughter       

Cradled lives, that ache repair         

Still four years after, in the air         

 

And here we are, so much gone

Searching for a breaking dawn        

porous hearts, lost in vain              

Scars are healing but not the pain    

                                             

The evening cracked torrential shower

of leaden rain from on the tower 

the unseen eyes of heinous glower

stole the stage with a thunderous power                                                       

 

Splintered noise across the grounds                                       

The voices of a thousand rounds

Overwhelm the country sounds

The playpen’s now the battlegrounds                        

 

And here we are, four years after     

Trailing tears, no more laughter       

Cradled lives, that ache repair         

Reverberations in the air

         

And here we are, so much gone

Searching for a breaking dawn 

Four years after, lost in vain            

Scars are healing not the pain         

 

Heroes billet on descend                                                        

Casting light in every bend                                                      

Lift the lambs from where they’re penned                             

And sweep the blood from where it stemmed

 

So here we are, four years after

Painful tears, a search for laughter

The tally’s only just begun

There’s so much more from 91

 

Those survivors seek repair

Though many lambs, it’s solitaire

reverberations through the lair 

Still four years after in the air -

For our friends - 10/1/17
