if you don't move it only hurts a bit somewhere between hubris and innocence it's kind of a shame we even have to lie dove in the hand wolf at your feet to tremble and cy Bleed until blind on the fringes of terror, hope shines on the fringes of terror, hope shines as Oakland remains on fire and Assisi will bleed like a dancer with bruised knees my love for you keeps me alive my love for you keeps me alive on the fringes of terror, hope shines on the fringes of terror, hope shines too fragile to beat for fear it will break where are all the lionhearted? hawks and the sparrows and the lily of the valley as Oakland remains on fire and Assisi will bleed like a dancer with bruised knees Grandpa: “Hello, mom! Well, mom, here I am in Chicago having a wonderful time with Roy. Last night Roy went down to my camp to get me, and I went to his. To our surprise, we didn’t find each other! I stayed around town, the eve’ning, and uh, and it was so nice ‘n’ warm, me ‘n’ my other frr-fellow soldiers we walked around town and took in a couple-a movies. Then in the morning I went to church as usual, and then we went to service club. There...from there I took a taxi down to all the way down to Roy’s place. Found him around there running around trying to get in touch with me. Well, it looks like his telephone service is pretty good. Phone me up, and I go walk in--Pretty good! [ laughs]. Then, uh, came back down here to the service club had some breakfast, and uh, it was swell, too. Everybody down here is treat us swell. Wish we’d stay down here longer. But I don’t know how long we’ll stay here, but I.., yeah, I hope we stay here longer! And, uh, well, some of the soldiers here, my friends, are playing ping pong, I went up to the music room and listened to some beautiful classical music. Wish Rosie was here, she could hear a lot of this music.”
