about

Inspired by the poetry of Zafer Şenocak

lyrics

You are dying on the street where the news was delivered
To you aloud
You are dying with the bottle under your arm
That you never got to open
With all the words you had wanted to say
The sealed word you kept all to yourself

So tonight I ask does anyone know the distance
From Seattle to a small town called Chehalis
You're not here to know
So let me tell you
I still travel on our path and in tangent circles
