      Original post

      Festival lights Bleeker Street jazz beneath our feet

      through foggy breath on bended knee I will plead tillĀ 

      the end of time babe let me guard all your lullabies.

      Ash morning sky picking up the pieces of life

      wrapped in a flag mementos among debris O FatherĀ 

      guard sacred memories.

      Long starless night feel my ancestors' temptation

      wrapped in blankets my ragged soul's salvation

      don't try to fine me frostbite darkey alley

      I know you've seen my kind give me a chance

      just one more time I'll clean up, babe, I'll be your

      immortal belowed.
