palace of bone

The men are all guarding a palace of bone / alone in the night / back home in their bed / they dream about tigers screaming in fright / and they know that it could’ve been them instead / they look to the east / and they polish their swords / then they look to the west / and they moan / when they wake with their heads / in a puddle of sweat / they go back / to the palace of bone.
