Live in Bed, Die in Battle 

 Dream softly
enter the sedation
end of discipline
sun-soaked day

nothing but a breeze
removing droplets
from your skin

- stop this -

like messanger birds
breaking a buck out of the rut
epiphanies are flying to me
power of my fathers 
warriors of the Boyne
Jacobites with dark hair
and emerald eyes 
black Irish in my blood
won't be denied 
the savage in my 
love can't be hidden
I want more so I work more
hussars to my left, Celts on my right
my ancestors lived in bed and in battle

they died
