Look at this canyon,
There was once a bustling, mining town.
Before the water broke,
Drowning every soul,
Taking everything I had.

The sun was high atop the trees,
People trying to fill their needs.
Wives and children,
Sitting home enjoying a summer day.
There was no warning from above,
There was no remorse.

Nothing could stop those mighty waves...

Do you remember the rocks giving way?
The helpless feeling...
Yes, I remember the rocks giving way,
The helpless, helpless feeling.

And from the moonlight,
I saw you.

Flightless bird,
Won't you stop these flames?
These embers wrought down
To destroy the frames.
Forgotten and destroyed,
Our drowned souls will die down.

Rising wind,
Halt your marching beat.
Lest these embers grow much higher,
And this ruthless wave of heat
Bring us forth to admire
Our drowned funeral pyre.

From the moonlight,
I saw you.

Oh, rising wind
Flightless bird...
