Voiceover intercepted with sound of stones falling on floor and footsteps

He plays
He is your child
He runs away
Does not look back
To fight a war which I no longer know is mine


Are you coming closer
Are you going further away.


Where is it that you walk now?
I know you are seeing the sun I see
I see the moon you see
I walk the land you walk


Why can’t I see you


The inches, the feet, the kms
The inches, the feet, the kms
Inches, feet, kms


The markings that we have made on this land
Has increased the distance so much
Am no longer able to see you
We ‘ll never be able to mark enough
No man will be able to mark all the land
The woman will stand and watch


I no longer want to count


Time
Time
Time
Is it your dream that am more in love with than with you


Walk Straight Don’t See
Bend forward Don’t see
Walk in the line Don’t see


Walk Straight Don’t See
Bend forward Don’t see
Walk in the line Don’t see


I can hear silence
Why does your smell not leave with you


It is him. He loves me
He ll come
Is he dead
Is he dead
Do dead people love
Do dead people love.
He said he ll come back
Am jealous of the land he loved more than me.


First the father.


Father


My lover


Child


They leave for the land
They leave with a half of you


I didn’t marry the land...
