Real Version

from Tea Clock (Van Allen) by ddb



The things that kept me away
three of them fell in the river
taking turns killing myself,
the third day of this gets boring
I wanted to die on the beach in sun
so I set up a ladder to get there

I mixed myself up a bottle
full of dried blood with ash
what came out was something new
there was nothing left over in that
and the empty bottle broke at my feet

I made tears today for linens
clothing that would dissolve on your skin
there was a naked soldier dead
I counted up as far as I could
he never worked again

great old people dying of cancer
secrets that they learned that they never told
I tied a knot and I can't undo
I broke my leg when I fell from the tree
who are you?
