Hope you sleep tonight.

It's Sunday in Trastevere.

Just for a day they might leave us alone.

The Pope has told them to go back home.

They're after blood and our bones.

As they rip away the skin.

We're like the first line of an army

Cause we're riding on the shin.

The soul of this whole town

Is west of everything,

With some girl in Trastevere.

"Honey", she said,

"Take me to bed".

And the party had just begun.

They're all gathered at the door.

We know what for.

But the party has just begun.

I met the king at the Coliseum.

Everyone thought he'd died.

When they stuck him down in Memphis,

Everybody cried.

The secret she spoke 

Was heard around the world,

"The king is now a girl".

I have a box

And in it a plan

That concerns both of us.

But not to worry,

For if it fails

We've got the butcher dogs by the tails.

Yes, the butcher dogs of Rome

Can clean up the rest.

I think it's best if we go back home.

Yes, I think we're ready to go back home.

Every Thursday night the Centre Streeters would gather in circle in a living room and evoke every damn lost, drunk, and brokenhearted song known to man... in four part harmony of course. Each time brought me closer and closer to the point of knowing no other way of life. My bio is isn't finished, but I've been gifted with humility. Sitting in a circle, playing songs is where the real music exists. ... more
