lyrics

Gentle wildebeest treads the cold dirt east
Knows he won’t find a home there
Knows the fog hangs low

Gentle wildebeest treads the cold dirt east
Knows he won’t find a home there
He’s always known

But here he lays his head
Buries his dead
And waits for the not yet

Gentle wildebeest dreams of that land of peace
Follows the sun follows the road
Won’t get him where he longs to go

Gentle wildebeest dreams of that land of peace
Follows the flock and the ways of old
Won’t get him where he longs to go

But he knows, he’s heard, of the Great Migration
And he knows his post at Battle Station
In this lonely life of near starvation
He waits

He waits
