Track Name: Dead Heroes - Me and That Old Woman: Sorrow / Alone with Everybody
the flesh covers the bone
and they put a mind
in there and
sometimes a soul,
and the women break
vases against the walls
and the men drink too much
and nobody finds the one
but they keep looking
crawling in and out of beds.

flesh covers the bone
and the flesh searches
for more than flesh.

there's no chance at all:
we are all trapped
by a singular fate.

nobody ever finds the one.

the city dumps fill
the junkyards fill
the madhouses fill
the hospitals fill
the graveyards fill

nothing else fills.
Track Name: Dead Heroes - One More Creature Dizzy With Love / We Will Taste the Islands and the Sea
I know that some night
in some bedroom soon
my fingers will rift
through soft clean hair

songs such as no radio plays
all sadness, grinning into flow.
Track Name: Dead Heroes - Scarlet / Prayer in Bad Weather
it's always when a man's swollen
with love and everything else
that it keeps raining
good for the trees and the
grass and the air ...
good for things that
live alone.

I would give anything
for a female's hand on me tonight.
they soften a man and
then leave him
listening to the rain.
that it keeps raining
Track Name: Dead Heroes - 4- Popular Melodies in the Last of Your Mind /In a Neighborhood of Murder
the roaches spit out paperclips
and the helicopter circles and circles
smelling for blood
searchlights leering
down into our bedroom

(5 guys in this court have pistols
another a machete
we are all murderers and alcoholics)

but there are worse in the hotel
across the street
they sit in the green and white doorway
banal and depraved
waiting to be institutionalized

here we each have a small green plant
in the window
and when we fight with our women at 3 a.m.
we speak softly
and on each porch
is a small dish of food
always eaten by morning
we presume by the cats.
