in the dark and chill of the morning
we rise and light the lamp
all but one child still sleeping
light the stove against the cold and damp

hungry monsters race across the lands
we feed them all both steel and bone
but it's for my hearts to the depths i go
to the grip of these times we're all thrown

coal dust black and coating skin
in our lungs for all our days
changing world to this silent raging glow
a death dance in our cells is how it pays

those times are buried 'neath the glass and steel
they rise, keep our feet high off the earth
stories of that darkness lingers
memories, precious…. more than all the coal was worth

so much of day spent in the depths
many dreams so blackened by the glow
the warmth of dusk the choices then accepted
the miles that passed and now i go
