Clenched Fist

For Marsha

Song by Hafiza Sue Capehart and Jim Skeel
Words by Hafiza Sue Capehart

Clenched fists and gnashing teeth.
Pounding my feet.
One foot in front of the other, on and on.

The long dark tunnel leads me on and on.
The pounding in my head’s the only heartbeat I know.

No way to get lost here.
There’s nowhere to turn.
I suppose what’s before me is what’s behind me.
No reason to see, no reason to feel.
For the walls of this place are as cold and hard as I feel.

Open your eyes. Come into the light.
Put one foot in front of the other, on and on.

Now, I don’t care that I don’t care that I’m going nowhere.
One foot in front of the other, on and on.

The skin on my body has turned to stone now.
My heart started pounding and I’m scared ‘cause I’m all alone.

I turn to get free
But the stone pierces through me.
The pain is burning as it trickles down my arm.
Oh heart, now I feel you and I see how you bleed.
And I’m thinking all I want is to try and get out of here.

Open your eyes. Come into the light.
Put one foot in front of the other, on and on.

Come take my hand. Reach out where you stand.
Put one foot in front of the other, on and on.

I've been here all along, now come walk in the sun.
Put one foot in front of the other, on and on.

When the world beat band Damawa broke up Hafiza and Jim decided to continue in a completely different vein. They traded in their flute and melodica and picked up electric guitars. The result? Thank Freud. ... more
