Now that I have the evidence
I'll head for the distant border
First I'll hit the trail and when I reach the road
Outrun the approaching convoy

I heard the noise and could not sleep
Turning the whole night over
She was not the first to go yet everyone
Recoiled from where they found her

And who are these faces
Pale and unmoved
Immune to my films
The hearing adjourned
What of this city
Strangers and shades
Scraping the sky

At sea I lay in a lonely hold
Keeping my hidden camera
Safe from the raging storms above
That now I wish had drowned me
