Time robs me.
It waits out
Steaks out
until my every move
is predictable
Not unlike the calendar that
Maya made of stone
and trial and error.
For if it was up to me
I would have never
left you alone.

When you feel the world
Closing in on you
And to stop it
There's nothing you can do

Time lies to me
tells me to move forward,
against my will.
But my will
moves forward,
with you by my side.

Just call my name
I'll come running
No matter where I am

I am a Californian
Who’s saving every drop
I have been: for the last six years
And now I’m told I have to stop.
Meanwhile....
I have to stop the usage
of the little water I consume
While Cochella Valley carries on
With fountains and water balloons.
 

The biggest drought in history
But I’ve been conserving since before
Because I knew the way we lived
 
The Earth would not ignore.
We have pillaged and plundered
and given nothing in return.
We expect that things should stay the same
from the World we’ll never learn.

She is tired and starved
She’s got nothing left to give
Before we stop, look in the mirror
And change the way we live.
 
Of course there’ll be one’s who listen
and others who don’t: it’s a fact.
So for those ignore the call
“Impose a water tax.”

Put the pasta water in your garden,
Shower with your spouse
 
These are just some words of wisdom
About trying to go without.
(Water of course,
 
not a lack-luster relationship.)

I am a Californian
Who’s saving every drop
I have been: for the last six years
And now I’m told I have to stop.
