Weep Western Tears

Joe Girard

 
 
Deep, swallowed in voice  
Eye of the monastery  
I weep Western tears  
 
Deep monastery  
Swallowed in the Western eye  
I weep tears of voice  
 
Swallowed deep, I weep  
In the eye of Western voice  
Monastery tears  
 
Eye-deep, I swallowed  
In the monastery, weep  
Western voice of tears
