Album: Death on the Mountain
(Bartleby J. Budde)

 

1941
I met old Jon From
‘rived in a metal bird
1941

 

Came here bearing gifts
Likes of which I never seen
Food from cans instead of fields
Snatched us from our savagery
Spoke to God in his little device
God spoke back his own advice
Heard the voice, the holy one
Holding court with old Jon From

 

1943
Jon From abandoned me
Took his bird, he took his cans
Left us with our barren lands
One day in February
Jon From will come back to me
Bringing cargo in his bird
Likes of which I never heard

 

1941
I met old Jon From
‘rived in a metal bird
1941
