This is a Hurt Song, as you ought to know
and it’s my first one since you retaught
to Show

And I was wrong, it’s not to complain that you
are not strong, nor to point out the pain

I never ever meant to mislead you,
nor to sever the tether which we were woven to,
But your clever equation of Sharp equals True
wouldn’t register the coming of the new
without a Hurt Song

as I sang Kesang, I went on too long
as cat eyes looked on at the shivering
Wrong Voice

Koushman jumped up on me, set my fingers free,
and with a wide yawn, he muted the stings of my
Song Choice

I wonder what it sounded like for you
down in that sealed radiation suit
But your fire has cracked our mirror in two
and you picked the sharp edge, so the point is moot
without gloves on

(’s just a love song)

I was wrong, I must remind you where we are
before this song is resigned from my guitar
So far

But before dawn, you really ought to know
That I remember what you wanted us to show
No Scar

Listen on (m)any levels- When the words and sounds fade, the story continues. ... more
