1. Get Well Soon

From the recording As You Believed


Your rabbit’s foot was powder blue, but maybe that was mineWho possessed which good luck charm, which talisman to ward off time?Now you seem sure each cell reflects not luck, but loveThough some, like lambs, have gone astrayGood shepherds watching from above pray:Get well soon, oh get well soon.At training camp for sleeper cells identities collapseUnited in our misery from Reveille and straight through TapsNow you’ll forgive my terror if we disagreeWe’ve been activated on different sides of the infirmary.Oh get well soon, please get well soonI’ll keep you covered as you are I won’t undress your battle scarIf you’ll get well soon.In this waking nightmare my suspicions are confirmed:You, in fact, are too good for this world.I might strike a simple bargain in the name I’ve often cursedIt’s the details in this deal with the devil again…Don’t leave us nurse — oh nurse — before we get well soonOh get well soonI won’t discover who you are You let me wear your battle scarAnd just get well soon.
