Paper Flowers Two

lyrics

all the debts
that they owed
would be paid back
ten fold
through the blood
and the flesh
of an unarmed man.
through the blood
and the flesh
of an unarmed man.

hid--
within
the case of a violin
a crudely
wrapped
diamond.
a crudely
wrapped
diamond.

"deliver us from evil"
she said.
"deliver us from evil
again."
"deliver us from evil"
she said.

through the dark
and the cold
every lie that he ever told
sat up in his review mirror
then disappeared.
sat up in his review mirror
then disappeared.

with his car
in the drive
he flashed his brights
for her to come outside.
a paper flower
behind her ear
as she faced the mirror.
a paper flower
behind her ear
as she faced the mirror.

"deliver us from evil"
she said.
"deliver us from evil
again."
"deliver us from evil"
she said.
