On a quiet, tree lined street
Made for men whose houses meet
With ruined toil and endless pay
That fill the void of yesterday

The wooden floors never creak
Till half past three you hear the creep
Of father John climb into bed
And you see it writ upon his head

A dagger has been thrown—with a curse it was cast
Into a heart of gold that’s ever turning black
Doom runs deep in a holy, ruined soul
With a heart broken down and growing cold

“I am a man,” cries brother Cal
Whose sway is broad and needs are now
He spent his early years alone
'Til hungry wealth bought him a home

But thrones are lost when power’s gone
And Cal’s big chair fell down upon
The thieves of men whose hearts have run
A jackal’s den that Cal called love


In my home lives a man
Who finds his name on every brand
Of borrowed love, unrealized
Behind the eyes, lobotomized

He speaks of him who lives on high
Hoping man can be divine
But all his sordid, selfish needs
Make him look like you and me


Our hearts have been made to be sold
