" [lonesomeness]

sleep alone tonight i know cause

tonight like any other you

laugh so easy hate

over and over laugh so

easy easy laugh again

performance killing

an arab there must be reverence

inseparable from proper objects

city plains highway clover leaf stranger

sunk in a vast knowledge

filled with old heroes

takes guts to be gentle and kind i m not

afraid not afraid to speak i m not alone "
