1.
under the stairs caught in revolving doors sitting on stones in abandoned cemeteries under the sea where the fishes swim through me humming a song w/ the last breath inside our lungs
2.
bullet holes & broken bones we’re giving up through fog & musket smoke we’re not giving up interred & disintegrated we’re giving up destroy the enemy we’re not giving up Blood – Coats – March in & out of time British blood it runs the world it’s inside us Blood – Coats – March blood flows from bullet holes ghost army made of gun smoke dissolved in soil far from home we still pursue the enemy Blood – Coats – March in & out of time Blood alone it runs the world it runs from us Blood – Coats – March to War !
3.
the road leads uphill & nowhere through the Colonies red grass & white sky up Post Road a dead messenger weaves through automobiles in & out of traffic patterns We Are Together Forever abbreviated ranks moving toward the sounds of battle burning everything in our path in this New England up Post Road a concrete highway blood in snow we leave but we don’t leave foot prints We Are Together Forever
4.
I cannot cross the boundary / of this wrought iron fence Others come & then return / to Providence Our ships come into harbor / all have been lost Our Royalist bodies under / skyscrapers Trapped Trapped Trapped In Boston
5.
unbroken ranks of brothers Minutemen line in lantern light take it in the head in the leg in the neck I was here / I am erased Into the fire. Into the fire. Draw your sword & fall on it We’re walking Walking into the fire
6.
the White Hart x3 will lead us home in New Hampshire we caught the light, caught the light we trailed him through the night, through the night the White Hart will lead us home x3 underneath the sea angler fish / gulper eels on the sea bed rotted masts / ship bones the White Hart x3 will lead us to our King
