while the war was waged

from by the Doorman



recorded straight into a computer microphone in the fall of 2004


where were you
without a family?
without the one true love
we'd never had enough

who wants to make this decision
of making an incision
in his own heart?

and at least you should
try to save this heart
albeit in a plastic bag with ice
we've gotta save this heart

this dwindling affair
never did you harm
a snake in the Garden
a snake with a charm
who dares to say I'm wrong
