Track Name: Some Bartenders
Some bartenders
they pass for priests
in a midnight mass
for all the sacred hearts that lean
on the counter

Track Name: In A Cigarette Voice
This bar has no one left
over sixty.
Just a few old ghosts
waiting to be spoken to.

And should I conjure them to speak
they would tell us tales of prison
in a cigarette voice
that rattles
like an old set of traps

***

A second chance perhaps…
to chauffer the young
and mock the proud observing lent
and gaze upon the beauty of a woman

and who says there is no God
when mercy such as this –
takes a life
and throws its own farewell
Track Name: Clowned
CLOWNED

All my friends they
go to the bar’
Every Tuesday

All my friends they
play in bands
and we all go
La da da da

Every Tuesday
the smoke could take a lung
and the Marlboro girl
is looking good
while she’s still young
And she goes
La da da da

I went back Tuesday
but all my friends were gone
there was no one left
but a bar full of clowns.
breaking tables
to circus tunes
taking over the bar
with their big yellow shoes
Track Name: Face Down on Concrete
Face down on concrete, I thought you were gone, I asked your friend what you were on
Cause sometimes I wonder if you’re not straight with me

Like you thought you were too bad and I was too good
So hold you back some truth although it would do you some good
Now your face down, stone cold, asleep on my shoe
And I’ll always be there for you

Face down on concrete outside of the club
Its funny the places we go to for love
And Jesus kissed lepers and spit out the blood

And all those self righteous lovers, they never cared for him much
He downed all their schemes, and drove out their luck
With money changers, and their bad hair cuts
But he’ll always be there for you

Stay close to God let him lift you up
Where you’ve let yourself down.
Show me your smile don’t let your countenance fall
to the ground
Track Name: Shipwreck
Where I touch you
will you open up like a flower?
Pedals that rise up
beneath the night
and will you
tremble inside?
Will you reach out for me now?
Your hand so
curious and casual
for the thoughts that lie
on my mind.

Twelve years
a beautiful fire.
Your song
a siren’s choir
And I long,
broken inside,
to be the shipwreck
between your thighs

Take off your crumpled dress
let it fall
in Holiness
and I will crawl
through the mess
and I will crawl.
