lyrics

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
