Back in a Few Days

I thought it might as well have been
god's shadow in the sunset
coming down the basement stairs

he brought us orange juice
candy bars and cold cuts
and clean T shirts in a shopping bag

boys I had some fight left then
these scars I got from throwing
all my weight against the chains

it was strange
I thought he looked so proud of me
as he smeared petroleum jelly on my cuts

"next time
maybe next time son"
I still get these restless dreams

but so yes boys yes I know you're angry
I know that you don't understand
but isn't this called love?

so yes next time boys
I should back in a few days
