new song: al-qaeda in iraq

Al-Qaeda in Iraq (from fb or buzz, you can click through to the blog post for an embedded mp3 player)

wake up thinking of the cell phone's ring
a cold sweat, brought on by the song it sings

nineteen bodies
buried in a shallow grave
nineteen bodies

buried in the valley of the shadow of death
forty k to see the sun again

nineteen bodies
buried in a shallow grave
nineteen bodies

taken from his home in broad daylight
unlit and barely fed, he shivers to the bone
in a makeshift cell, a well of endless sorrow
and nineteen bodies that wouldn't sell
