- Masque
Sway — ‘neath the
vaulted ceilings of this
holy throne — lo they of means
shall drink spiced wines and feast
upon suckling boar while —
those of want struggle for
air
— know they this
between them miasma creeps —
vapors of their lips
for it cares not
distinction

The government — fucked
up now a — generation is finding
peace — in a bottle’s bottom and a
needle’s tip —
Oh
fuck now these children ain’t
never going to meet
mom or dad
and fuck the cops are twitching
for that trigger-pull
tag on the toe
don’t go telling
the widow

-Eschew
spun through lips
of — sweeten’d breath
o’ the king shall rest upon
that gilded throne — think
not of those who rot in the fields
or those — in the alleyways who
gasp
o’ winter comes
winter comes
winter —
to bury us —

-Ever there be
oh you - e’er in that
trembling dark - alone
as what feels real -
crumbles underfoot -
oh - take my
hand
and - together
together until the dark
burns bright
- together
‘till you can stand
oh - together, we can be -

-lift
together,together
break this ground -
we - the children
- of what we owe
together,together
grind this - earth
upon our shoulders
can you hear - the
widow’s tune?
together,together
these cold waters
- flow - here the boss
mans coming to
collect that crumpled
dollar -
together,together
hear - our voice now
in the air -
oh - the widow with
the battered rifle -
and the dirt ‘neath
her nails -
together,together
this town - it is our
sanctum - though these
homes we shall never own
and they say -
the boss mans hidin’
- from us
together,together

-String
Tie my fingers with - ribbons
- and let me trace -the
curve - oh close my eyes -
draw the bandana
tight - so I might feel
breath against
the skin - of my neck

seal my lips with -
wax - so I might
not
ruin -
