A Threnody for the loss of things...civility, reason, common sense, fairness...you name it, we've lost it.
Lyrics--
Measured Steps
In Measured steps
On borrowed time
this tethered quest
it's fatal by design

In bold relief
by honor bound
when wounds are sought
It's wounds that will be found

In circus tents
on fallow fields
sideshow events
the strongman yeilds

the bearded ladies
& tightrope stars
drive Mercedes into
nerve gas spewing clown cars

5 Fallen angels
in tangled nets
Fire eaters chow down
On packs of cigarettes


Heigh-ho Heigh ho
sings the Carrion Crow
off off off we go go go
Heigh-ho Heigh ho
we've all gone commando
bang the drum slow slow slow tally ho tally ho


In measured steps
the Rhythm fades away
in some respects
we've all been betrayed

And who could ask for anything more?
Who would write the musical score?
To the closing final scene, the coup de grace
Regression toward the mean, this man of straw?



The english hawthorne
tangled in myrtle oak
dense with heavy spirits
dons the hooded cloak

In measured steps
the Rhythm fades away
in some respects
we've all been betrayed

Heigh-ho Heigh-ho
sings the Carrion Crow
off off off we go go go
Heigh-ho Heigh-ho
we've all gone commando
bang the drum slow slow slow tally ho tally ho


And who could ask for anything more?
Who would write the musical score?
To the closing final scene, the coup de grace
Regression toward the mean, this man of straw?


In sad malaise
on hallowed ground
the end of days
in this barrow mound

In sad defeat
the tolling bells
sounds obsolete
in final knells

In Measured steps
On borrowed time
this tethered quest
it's fatal by design

In bold relief
by honor bound
when wounds are sought
It's wounds that will be found

Heigh-ho Heigh-ho
sings the Carrion Crow
off off off we go go go
Heigh-ho Heigh ho
we've all gone commando
bang the drum slow slow slow tally ho tally ho
