there's a mountain where it doesn't belong in another world where right is wrong and the only news is a raging kong on morgantown volcano well it seems the curse of emptiness is not unique to this address and it don't hurt any less on morgantown volcano expect the unexpected wherever you reside you may think you're protected and god is on your side but then you wake up in the morning somewhere you don't know and you watch the raging fires on morgantown volcano

we were two new faces on the block and we were waiting for those animals to come to us they can't play guitar so they stab at my car in the night while I doze and sigh a love song to their wives maybe I just thought I heard you say what you used to do to keep a howling wolf away you'd stay out of sight then surround them at night with the fire is that why the rent keeps creeping up higher neighbor, please neighbor, please it's easy we can play or we can stay apart but if you see me and I seem to be sleeping just walk away I'm in a state some kinda Idaho neighbor i've come to bring you terrible news we both cannot win and we both cannot lose the ties that have bound us by now they fall down to the ground and our snouts press and the outcome's now

actually, it's over okay but can you repeat that again actually, the end I didn't want this to be the end I didn't want this to be the end I was lost when I saw the bend in the river if yr compassion fatigue permits could you help so they don't forget the caregiver actually, it's over okay but really it's not over, right actually, it might I didn't want this to end tonight I didn't want this to end tonight but the later we wait for light it grows dimmer if yr compassion fatigue allows could you smile when they ask about the caregiver I didn't want this to be the end I'm alone and I can't pretend to be with her and from a shore on another coast I will try to becalm the ghost of the caregiver

Mi abuello come pescado [My grandfather eats fish] Cuantos anos tiene? [How old is he?] Ciento y uno anos [101] Cuando visitas? [When do you visit?] Visito por tres horas a semana [I visit for 3 hours a week] Que haceis? [What do you do?] Miramos la television en la salon. [We watch tv in the living room] Tu es bueno nieta. [You are a good grandson] Y somos mis amigos. [And you are my friends] Somos no. [We are not]

finally, my appetite has overwhelmed my inhibition and I can say goodnight to pain, doubt, fear and superstition If I had met you way back then with all I know about you know well maybe we could tell a friend before I met you I was out of mind
