Keep Art Alive :: Lori Earley

The truth is in the dirt on the ground,
The truth is in the dirt on the ground,
not in your poison tongue,
or your acid tears.
Let the truth howl in your ears.”

Jump
by me

The answers are at the bottom of the ocean
so she ran to the precipice
she ran to the edge of the cliff
pausing to ask if she really wanted to know

He said jump
He said close your eyes and jump
He said everything you always wanted
you will find

The lies are in the highest highs in the sky
so she kept her eyes low
she kept her eyes focused on below
looking up only to see his wide brown eyes

He said jump
He said close your eyes and jump
He said everything you never wanted
you will find

With arms wide
and eyes tight
she jumped into the truth
into the end of wonder
into her end
