from Album (Unreleased Tracks) by Kristin Hersh
Kristin Hersh (born August 7, 1966) is an American United States singer/songwriter who performs solo acoustic concerts; she also has performed as lead singer and guitarist for alternative rock group [more..]

Well it's sundown in the sinkhole,

It's sunrise up on the hill.

The thieves are sleeping in Hades palm,

And they're keeping very still.

It's summer in Winterhaven,

And the earth, she's caving in.

There's no water on the land,

And it's all because of sin.



Mae Rose Owens lost her bedroom

When the porches all fell in.

Guy LaGuarde kissed his yard goodbye

And it's all because of sin.

No one must be told

About this thieving in the night,

Satan stole the landscape,

It was gone with the morning light.



It's sundown in the sinkhole,

It's sunrise up on the hill.

The thieves are sleeping in Hades palm,

And they're keeping very still.

It's summer in Winterhaven,

And the earth, she's caving in.

There's no water on the land,

And it's all because of sin.



Seven recreational vehicles buried underground.

Seven cranes went after them,

Six could not be found.

A Porsche and half a swimming pool

Are lost I am afeared.

The seventh crane approached the hole,

Then it disappeared.



It's sundown in the sinkhole,

It's sunrise up on the hill.

The thieves are sleeping in Hades palm,

And they're keeping very still.

It's summer in Winterhaven,

And the earth, she's caving in.

There's no water on the land,

And it's all because of sin.



St. Augustine in his slumber,

Feels the depths of his own soul.

St. Bernadette in her vision,

Feels her body beyond control.

The flowers of Narcissus,

Are nailed to the underworld door,

And Hades has the medicine,

And he keeps down on the floor.



It's sundown in the sinkhole,

It's sunrise up on the hill.

The thieves are sleeping in Hades palm,

And they're keeping very still.

It's summer in Winterhaven,

And the earth, she's caving in.

There's no water on the land,

And it's all because of sin.
