    in the end, even the mighty fail
    to scrape away the ivy and brick-dust
    and there divine the runes of their life's tale.
    in the end, even the mighty fail.

    the quest is noble, but to no avail,
    and every gleaming sword succumbs to rust:
    in the end, even the mighty fail
    to scrape away the ivy and brick-dust.

    To scrape away the ivy and brick, dust
    the first with compliments. She’ll always soar
    and leave the brick banging his boat, with rust
    to scrape. Away the ivy and brick! Dust
    the demons that kick at her heels and trust
    that she’s the one to scoop up. Mud and doors
    to scrape away. The ivy and brick dust
    the first. With compliments she’ll always soar.

    The first with compliments, she'll always soar;
    her words and deeds protect her. As shall I
    (no-one on this sweet earth could love her more).
    The first with compliments, she'll always soar
    above injustice, bigotry and war;
    above us all, until the day we die--
    the first, with compliments. She'll always soar;
    her words and deeds protect her, as shall I.

    From 'EFFIN ALBERT:
    “Take that thumb out of your mouth.”
    I open my eyes. Jerkface got a look on his face like I’m making him sick.
    I slide my thumb out, dry it with my shirt and stand up.
    “What is this, a goddamn Chinese fire drill? Sit the fuck down, Mike,” he says.
    I go, “No. You ain’t doing this to us.”
    Mom goes, “Michael honey.” Sounding thick already.
    “It’s okay, Mikie,” Albert says and I’m shaking my head ´cause it ain’t okay, not even a little bit okay.

    Her words and deeds protect her, as shall I.
    The Sword of Athena cuts to the art
    of war; what it means to pray on the fly.
    Her words and deeds protect her, as shall I.
    A lasso that binds the truth to your eyes
    will burn. Ares wants to rip it apart.
    Her words and deeds protect her, as shall I.
    The Sword of Athena cuts to the art.

    The sword of Athena cuts to the art
    of bloody combat. Blade aloft: a light
    above bodies bleeding in the cart.
    The sword of Athena cuts to the art.
    Fate, or reason? Each has played a part
    and each bears witness: death ignites
    the sword of Athena; cuts to the art

    of bloody combat: blade aloft, alight.

    Of bloody combat--blade aloft, alight--
    this is the thing I dream of: this thing,
    this base desire. In my dream: a night
    of bloody combat, blade aloft; a light
    to guide me shining beacon bright
    to light my darkness and I sing
    of bloody combat, blade aloft, alight;
    this is the thing I dream of, this thing. . .
