All the words in the dictionary
float above our heads
wanting just to be spoken
but not knowing where to land

and cigarettes will be the ones who
keep you lips company while I’m
far away and living in cities
with nothing to my name

It’s simple, I’m certain

Here’s to the men who died
in a war when our fathers were boys
and to the man I never knew
who gave birth to my mother

It’s simple, I’m certain
These circles keep working

and I could learn a thing or two
so could you, so could you
and I could learn a thing or two
so could you, so could you

and the worms are drinking and dancing
feasting on the bone
and some day my body will go down
and will be theres instead of yours

It’s simple, I’m certain
These circles keep working

and I could learn a thing or two
so could you, so could you
and I could learn a thing or two
so could you, so could you
