Sinking Sand

Doctor let go of the scalpel
Father let go of the knife
Sister they’re trying to help him
Brother it will be alright

Slip into the sinking sand
You have to let go to find the hand

Nurse take off your gloves
Mother don’t shove from a nudge
Sister we’re trying to hit her
Brother stop crying only a little

Slip into the sinking sand
You have to let go to find the hand
Run out into the broad daylight
Don’t wander, don’t wonder
Father is just out of sight

The hospitals are all filled with coffins
Fathers are dying so often
Mothers are falling down with them
Sisters & brothers both see it

Our world is slipping into the sinking sand
We won’t let go yet can’t demand
Fathers & mothers in sinking sand
"Borrow my eyes so I don’t see again”
You have to let go to find the hand
You have to let go to find the man
You have to let go to find the hand
You have to let go to see a plan
