Notes

Box contained two CD’s in separate jewel cases plus insert with text by Biba Kopf.

Listen, man
it may soon be time
for you to guard a dying man
until the angels come.
Lets not chat about despair.
If you are a man (and not a coward)
you will grasp the hand of him denied by mercy
until his breath becomes your own.
