Remember Joan of Arc?
 
Betrayed by the very king and country she gave her life for
 
Burnt alive at 19 by the very church she lived her life for
 
Is this what happens when you answer the call
 
What chance have you got darling, no chance at all
 
Hold it higher she said, I can see the river bend
 
Keep it always in my sight until the end
 
Higher so I can see the cross above the flames
 
I have learned praise and blame are all the same
 
It’s not tears, it’s smoke in my eyes
 
I seek the heavens, I search the skies
 
Standing in the fire looking out to sea
 
Waiting for the waves to bring the water back to me
 
– NausherNash
