there's broken glass where the windows were smashed
and the bricks lie toppled and broke
words on my tongue and i'm desperate to speak them
when i try they just stick in my throat
i'm choking on the years, they lie weary on me
my face become knotted in scowl
so throw me to the dogs
i once loved their mournful yowl
there is no need for words out here in the silence
where the ringtail stealthily walks
back in the city the noise conquers all
the shopping, the swearing, the useless talk
I am down on my knees under carved river canyon
under juniper my soul is laid bare
so throw me to the dogs
don't you know I'm happier there

the gutters can't suck me where the dust devils blow
out in painted desert of sagebrush and rock
under arroyo the turtle crawls
and the skin on my face it is dry as chalk
its an unspoken hunger that brought me here
out where the coyotes throng
so throw me to the dogs
that's where i belong
