(Music by Leah Hinton and Jordan Tredray, lyrics by Leah Hinton©2009)

This new day cannot deflect
The blunt object that beats at my chest
This new day will not concede a move
But time heals all wounds
Though it moves so slow
When you’re standing so still

This new day will not elude
This dark and poisonous mood
Mighty hands they hold me down
I know them, they’re my own
But maybe tomorrow
They will let me alone

The direction is down
Heavy the head
Clothes of duress
The night’s shiny best
We’ll parade until dawn
And when darkness has gone
Hope time will have seized
These misgivings away

This new day will not reveal
The gleam of hope I know I should feel
This present it stretches out
Curves around, no end in sight
But maybe tomorrow will deliver me
Hopeful and new

Just hang in there
Wait it out
Just hang in there
Sit it out
Remember Dali
Time persists
And will move
Just wait it out
The persistence of time
