That hollow sound you hear is loss:
It’s so simple - almost elementary.
It’s need that drives us:
The urgent requirement to drown out that clamour.
A feeling that’s pumping around us,
Tingling the core and rippling the skin.
We hold hands together in our soaring songs
To shield us from the infernal beat.
