Coping with the deaths of many fellow "train hopping" best friends means figuring out how to "deal" with the way their blood family "presents" the corpse in a stale funeral.


Leave a message so I know what you want from me
or me to want from you.
Low in the undertow of my soul
thoughts get lost often off topics are crossed
bleeding together.
I can see you in my mind you're alright, not far from fine.
I want you to know...

When I saw what they did to you.
How they stole your face from you, from us;
You had shed your body.
I would have; rather, not seen.
Rather replaced the memory
with something anything than
how they thought you should look to me.
They combed out your matted hair,
covered your tattoos.
They-filled in all the holes.
Defiled you!
They covered you. They covered you in their politics
in their poli-talks. In their politics.
Yeah, they covered you (4x) in what you never were!
Though I know I could go the same way.
It's not the same for me today.
Though I could say, “I'd never care,”
It's not like I'm the one lying dead.
And I'm at your grave.
There's your name;
I see the way that it's written is wrong.
Your face rearranged, airbrushed like a filthy Ad.
Your corpse defiled all in the name of lies!
We all know who you are!
Thank you for being my friend.
It's an honor to have known you. You warm my heart
and i'm trying to let you rest in peace
rest in peace. Just rest
