lyrics

Listen to the foghorns blow
Into the harbor air
Watch the nightmen swill their wine
And dance the thoroughfare
While the moon ignites
The cemetery grounds
And the silver ribs
Of the bells

We lowered down the milliner
Who'd finally passed away
We lowered down a family
Who had burned in the cabaret
And strung the nickel wire
From the caskets through the clay
To the bells

Nothing when my eyes are wide
But the vagueness of a dream
Coils of soft white sawdust
Opal eyes of a galaxy
But before the rest is silence
Comes a distant hammering
Of the bells

Narrower our ceiling
Narrower our floors
Narrower and narrower
Our beds below the boards
No, we're alive, we're alive!
The bells

about

porches Portland, Oregon

Trained in the ways of the gun and the axe, in wrangling tornadoes and dancing in the face of danger, in drinking without a straw and punching without a fist.
