lyrics

on the outskirts of the city
cherry lane’s turned tonight
into a black oil river that sweeps away
veterans and teens like the tide

like a wave that carries and buries
them in bars named after saints
where only men with bellies and pain
like in labour stay lone and awake

~
spiders’ legs are soaked in brandy
three things you won’t do but you might
kittens sing like it was monday
the saints stay up all night
~

and rain hangs silver curtains
into that window of suzanne’s
a half moon shaped counter
waits for town’s most sensitive men

one mourns for his lover
who fell prey to a thug
another drinks to his old man
behind bars since he shot

we sure weren’t strangers
but we never had been friends
a moment of kindness
for the saints at suzanne’s
