Bone drying heat
Silence clings like a final shroud
Killing hope before it can be born
Despair and die, is the unspoken cry
Of a thousand pathless dunes
Despair and die!
commands the cyclop eye of the tearless water bottle
Bitter soul emptying wails splinter the silence
Hagar is ready to obey the harsh command of the silent dunes
Scraggy shrubs shelter abandoned Ishmael
Despair and die, the leaves whisper to him
His voiceless plea steals into the heart of the Almighty
El Roi speaks and the menacing silence retreats
Seducing despair wisps away
Tear opaqued eyes open to see the well
Hope raises its crushed head and lives again
