it's been twenty thousand days since the best ones
hotels, plastic sheets
tasteless food, dialysis machines
the telephone hasn't rung since april
staring windows, ballroom jokes
resperators, kidney stones

neon skies open up
three saturdays a month
the air in uptown swells
the windowpanes can go to hell

slow summer walking through a bad neighborhood
toothless smiles renew ventricles
the radio is live
the listeners have found their reason
the phone hasn't rung since april
the music turns alone into home

    General Commentmaybe im the only one who thinks this song is one of the best but whatever. It's about an old folks home right on Lawrence Avenue like three seconds away from the Aragon and the Uptown Theater. Brendan used to live in the apartment next to that old folks home. I drove about 40 miles once and saw it and then started yelling things, my girlfriend thought i was weird.
