Do not feed the birds
Do not sweep the walk
Do not pull the weeds
Don't harvest the tomatoes

Do not get the paper
Do not check the toast
Don't bring in the mail
Can you hear her ghost?

Where were you?
I, I thought I knew

In the tap, in the tap
I'm the dripping from the tap

Do not close the window
Don't turn on the heat
Do not clear the table
Do not check the burner

Do not get the phone
Do not stop its ring
Do not shine the silver
Can you hear her sing?

Where were you?
I, I thought I knew

In the soil, in the soil
I'm the mushrooms in the soil

I have been and I am
Someone I don't know
This is also my resistance

Do not clip your nails
Do not cut your hair
Do not change your clothes
Do not leave this chair

Do not drink this water
Do not draw this breath
Do not make the bathroom
Come on, eat your death

Where were you?
I thought I knew
In the wood, in the wood
I'm the whistle in the wood

    General CommentThis song is about how my grandfather starved himself. I find it comforting to know I am not alone among Venables.
