words of dusk

take my neck let it hold
take my liver make it work
take my eyes let them see
take my heart and make it beat

take these bones and make them last another day
let me straighten out my back tomorrow when i wake

take my feet make them walk
take my teeth have them chew
take my knees
take my lungs and let them breathe

thats all
one more day

then ill be on my way
leave you to your own devices
let you be

your stars are very black tonite
your darkness very bright
the rain and cold
your hiding sun

according to your mold:
very, very young
and very old

thats all
