At the death of death, at the bed of ends,
at the time to tell, you'll explain yourself when they free your hands
and the ones you loved will understand
the jagged edges of the voice that you killed, that you killed within.
And each according to his dreaming is

And if they will forgive, it'll start with the kid,
so shy and tall as his talents bloomed and his heart stayed hid.
And his mother judged all his father did.
And the Order of the Book and the Gun made a man, made a man of him.
And each according to his dreaming is.

Dream on while the evening plays on the ceiling
and the shallows are warmer than the deep.
Did you get the feeling that your children were stealing
the flowers that make you sleep?
And each according to his dreaming is

And we will account, and we will attest,
our voices mount in your defense though it could be said
that you cheated most what loved you best,

They tamp the ground. The rains will come,
the names dissolve, and all the lost will be mourned as one.
And when it is sung, there's no one cares
how well it was sung.
