Strolling down the green path way
With my fellow invalids
Halloween party tonight
In the women's gym

Saturday night at the dance
I'd ask you if I dance

Men's ward wants me back
By ten, not far
Take down your half mask and I'll
See who you are


At three o'clock this morning
Look through the glass
I'll blink the floor lights on and off
Like ships that pass

    General CommentCould this song perhaps be related to E's sister Elizabeth? He hasn't written anything about her since Electro-shock Blues, but it'd be kind of a weird coincidence for the name Elizabeth to show up and it not be about her.
