Requiem for 1230 N. Burling

lyrics

in the night i watched you run your fingers red
i remember what i heard your father said:

“i’m the wrong child, undesired i’ll always be
on the wrong side, have i chosen wrong for me?”

i will pray for you
i will pray for you

there’s a baseline (noise and rhymes), we make a home
throw the empire, will you try? you’d rather run.

“will you help me?” said your brother, late one night
“on the wrong side, i’ve been trying all my life!”

i will pray for you
i will pray for you

on the wrong side, lift your eyes!
you’ll always be on the wrong side,
with no lies or mouths to feed.

you’re the lone child
undesired you’ll always be
on the wrong side
undefined but always free

i will pray for you
i will pray for you
