Carolyn - Dirtnap

lyrics

I saw your name on the ledger when you approached the coffin.
I wasn't there but I wasn't -not- watching.

Black gowns and matching ties.
A grieving widow and a veil as black as night.
Each word is a word of a word that someone else has said.

A vessel sailing on the palms of past friends,
heading south for the deepest and darkest of depths.
No need for any rose trophies.
This ceremony could've gone on without me.
Every heave of dirt is another farewell to this world!

Black gowns and matching ties.
A grieving widow and a veil as black as night.
Each word is a word of a word that someone else has said.

I feel more at home in the dirt than any other worm walking the face of this earth.

Farewell, good riddance. No white pocket fences.
Shovel.
