lyrics

Lucia and Paola's faces,
gentle grimaces.
'We may or may not save your father,
but nonetheless can lift him.
For so long you've been praying.
Rest and leave us with him.'

She paid them by the month.
Her father ebbed.

'A prayer is like a song.
Anyone can sing a song
and raise the atmosphere.
You can sing “thanks to the sun”,
feel the warmth and the cheer.
Now, say, Billie Holiday –
she sings “thanks to the sun”
and the light bends down to hear.
Think of it like that.
Conceive that prayer -

Fuller, subtler, darker, brighter.

Yes?'

'Yes.'

'A carpenter will make crosses –
tokens, yes, but to the good.
Monthly they'll go to Sister Mary
of the Cross – who'll bless the wood...'

'...I know he's a good man and he'll get the best.'

'...Those with us in Conservano
will, day and night, raise a rabble –
fuller, subtler, darker, brighter.
While you...you rest.'
