I believe in tonight, more than any other night,
We raked these withered fingers
over the dirt roads of this town.
Drinking to forget our friends
in hospital gowns.
Sometimes the best rest is on the ground.
We scratched the roofs of our mouths
while choking down disease.
Taking entire handfuls
cause one is just a tease.
The ambulance came at quarter to three.
