Track Name: First In Line
How could you have known?
There was only starlight to see by
And you couldn’t waste a second while the continent a-beckoned
From across the ice

And into the crevasse
The sledges tumbled and detached and seized into the sea

Sometimes
That’s all
The first in line
Gets to be

How could you have known?
They raised you out of mirrors and smoke
A beacon from the heavens, whence they said you had descended
I knew it was the other way around

A statue of a fully suited goddess
Slingin’ arrows, lookin’ right at me

Sometimes
That’s all
The first in line
Gets to be

If death
Should come
Before your day
Then life
Becomes
A cabaret

If death should come before your day…

A shrine of gold lame and satin
Pyramid of old Manhattan
Curiously,
Sometimes that’s all the first in line
Sometimes that’s all the first in line
Sometimes that’s all the first in line gets to be
Track Name: To The Letter
I could make a career of it
Through parties and MySpace
The transgender arms race

And I could make a career of it
Through YouTube and Logo
And lesbian pride shows

I won’t always look like I’m seventeen
But those shirtless shits got shit on me

But I can’t provide
I can’t provide
Any kind of proof it gets better
I can’t provide
I can’t provide
Any kinda reason
I should follow them to the letter

Yr reachin’ kinda far
For something abject or bizarre
You’ll only get so far
If you don’t tell them what you are

Well I’m a soft case baby
I’ll throw you under the bus
So lazy to conflate us
With each other, I’ll throw you under the bus
Join the spectacle or rust

But that’s the only way it gets better
I will never follow them to the letter
Track Name: Separation Falls
How long,
How long
Will you camp upon the rocky banks
While your coffee goes dank?

My god, what have you done?
Well you’ve gone to where the devil sleeps
And the mail never comes

But if you try and climb
Back up out of that canyon
You’ll never find, never find
Your way back home again

Kidnapped by mormons and eaten alive

How long,
How long
Will you camp upon the rocky banks
While your coffee goes dank?

My god, what have you done?
