hay from the barn filled our mouths up with dust
fanning the air though we wouldn’t have touched
i’m burned in all of six different ways

to far beyond what seems a bit too much, when light’s been released

I’ve been dreaming – surprise, surprise…

promise the bite fills our stomachs with rust
I caught you down, way down in the field
Green hands and blind, it didn’t seem real


from The Green Fury, released January 22, 2002
