The Enemy's Gate Is Down

from by Our Lost Infantry

lyrics

we were born in a temple of words. with doorways and windows. and eyeballs and arms. we were born to the toll of the prayer bell. the clanking of crystal. the clicking of tongues. a life's work. doesn't let in the cold. no man should be boarded up. throw open your windows and doors. we were born in a mess of desires. born into bondage. to shore up the walls. we were born on the factory floor. what are words but a warm bed. to lay down our wants? all sound and no fury. dear reader, you've let me down. newsprint the banner: what goes around, comes around. provisionally, i have this secret i've kept inside. i can't tell if i'm the sign or the signified. fin de siecle feeling. markets down. the city reeling. iron will that needs annealing. out of faith. needing healing now
