The fayre is leaving town,
There isn't anyone around,
Only candy-floss packets,
And the run down ground.

Empty cider bottles,
That boy sure hit the ground,
Argued in the neon lights,
Over pennies and pounds,
Ran for his dear life,
Away from town.

The wind it blows, yes I know, it's elementary.

The choir watches in silence,
As the drummer hammers on.
It doesn't mean nothing,
There are harder roads to come.

In the sewers that sre run outs,
For the old canal,
Reeks the dirty old sewers,
And the carrion smell.

A group that unites,
Is stronger within strife,
Like the pen that writes,
Is sharper than the knife,
Like the man who's all talk,
But not willing to fight.


from Penance, released November 2, 2009
