Crazy Arctic Thunder by Brian Reimer

In the joy of youth I was the curious wolf
Not the kill but the thrill of the chase
With you I shared my most honest heart
With a rusted knife you profaned that place

The Boy becomes the Man who became the Daddy
It was you, Mommy who gave me that dream
When our precious girls were still too young to know
You went solo, you abandoned the team

When you broke my heart and tore my soul
And you left my mind to wonder
Did you hear the mighty scarring crack
Like a seismic wail from under
Did you feel the tremor in your bones
Like some crazy arctic thunder
Did you think at all about the darkness of
The landslide you crushed me under

With you a temple revealed
We reveled and shared sacred vows
Then a cold wind blew out the yearning flame
And we bent like snow covered boughs

I am complicit, I know my flaws
My cracks run right to the marrow
But we can’t find truth seeking vain ideals
Arctic air does not scare the Sparrow

When you broke my heart and tore my soul
And you left my mind to wonder
Did you hear the mighty scarring crack
Like a seismic wail from under
Did you feel the tremor in your bones
Like some crazy arctic thunder
Did you think at all about the darkness of
The landslide your crushed me under
