Words and music by Amy Denio. A song about parallel universes. During the summer of 2006 I was wishing for someone to bring me coffee in the morning when I heard a field recording of musicians improvising in Beirut while bombs were falling very close. So many experiences happen all in the same instant. The second verse was inspired by a conversation with a US soldier leaving Guatanamo.

lyrics

Beirut's under seige again and I'm lost in the Target
with a sale on Aisle 4
I'll pick up some more
of those things that I need
I'm doing my deed

But some day I'll get breakfast in bed
Some day I'll stop counting the dead
And then I'll lie back down

Baghdad's under seige again and I'm lost in the target
But I'm on my way home
they just don't know
all the things that I've seen
of death and its glow
