11TH DREAM DAY AMONG THE PINES LYRICS

Slipped in the shower stall
hit his head and died
he lost his concentration
for a moment

as the water fell on his shoulders
he thought about a time
he thought about a time
when life was painful

like the time he walked home in the rain
a summer in Florida when he nearly froze
a morning in Chicago when a dog meant nothing to nobody

a fall in the winter that killed him
a fall in the winter that killed him

he lost his concentration
blame it on sharp movement
blood-porcelain-concrete-thought his life was getting hard

his past thoughts were meaningless
future thoughts unheard of
present thoughts hopeless.

his head felt like a loaf of bread
with the crust peeled off
sandwiched between the shower stall and purgatory

his life went down the drain
his life went down the drain

a cold fall rain
a distant vague pain
a long black train

shoo and sway
through soggy New England forests
a chosen place of farewells

Among the pines that someday fell
Among the pines that someday fell
Among the pines that someday fell
Among the pines that someday fell
