For JPC... Rest in peace you skumdog motherfucker, wherever you are...

lyrics

Carried
a rusted landmark guides your way
you know the path
and the lay of the land
Silent, in secret
the past unknown
those who've come after me know nothing
only your precious face
nothing behind the smile
grim and inviting
the leather and flesh as one
sensual, exhilarant
terrified of instinct
to enfold you in my wings
smother you
drain the light from your eyes

(sun stay cold tongue son pray cold run
none say bold blunt cold blade ruin fun)

We'll carry the memory of him forever
and bury the memory of him together

We'll bury the memory of him together
we'll carry the memory of him forever
baring his cross of bone
he never wanted a friend
and there in an unmarked grave alone
he got what he wanted
gone in darkness
baring his cross of bone
he paid the piper with blood and fire
he burned the angels
he burned the phantoms
the light had gone out
he's lost in darkness
baring his cross of bone
he got what he wanted
lost in darkness
baring his cross of bone
