Over The Cane

    Purchasable with gift card



after the long haul
out from under those chains
head down to the household
put some food to the flame
we listen to nesting
calling over the cane
oh they sing of a longing
they tell of her pain
she says that she’s leaving
although she remains

at home with the heathens
filled with that flesh
oh the warmth of the water
that beast on our breath
sink down to the darkness
wrapped in a womb
oh her voice is the humming
her arms like a tomb
the joy is so fleeting
that sorrow too soon

save these songs for the broken hearted
save your prayers for those departed
forget your fears and rest assured
no I don’t need them anymore

so after the long haul
at the end of those days
we’d jump from the rooftops
pull life from that clay
for all that was promised
and given away
she’s left with the burden
she’s left with the blame
but I remember that household
I remember that flame
