About the song
One of my "divorce" songs after the end of my first marriage, making pain into a farewell song.
You'll Be Going When You Go

I kicked a tin can down the street
It rattled in the gutter like some bones on a metal sheet
The sky was ashen like some face
I saw upon a dead man in a hospital in space


You'll be going when you go
You'll be knowing when you know
Ten thousand memories in tow
You'll be going when you go

Five toy soldiers flecked in blood
Were playing Beatles' remakes on a stage out in the mud
Voices whining, limbs askew
Their music more harmonious than any I made with you


Long I labored to love you well
While you lounged in the bathtub and the house just went to hell
So Sayonara, good-bye, doll
I'll think of you whenever I see laundry in the hall
