Stockholm 04:53
A call on the telephone may seem unnatural, but it’s the best that we can do sometimes. It’s becoming all the time; slowly, but soon, all the time. And I call you on the telephone, and you don’t pick up; does that mean that you’re already home? And I call you on the telephone, and you don’t pick up anymore. Calling all those who have big ideas; all you lovable Liberals and your fascist friends: go on our TV, show us where the unwashed masses hurt your windows; just try and take us back to Stockholm. I know your head is a desert; I know you’re “one of a kind.” It’s becoming noticable; slowly, but soon, noticable. And I call you on the telephone, and you don’t pick up; but I know that you’re already home. But you know, there are those of us who have broken hearts; we, the unwashed masses at our dead ends. We’ll turn off our TV, take back the factory, and never go back to Stockholm. I know you’re not in the desert; I know you’re not in my mind.
Pennsylvania 06:20
Midnight, out in Pennsylvania; and you know that I miss ya. Tonight I dreamed you’d run away from home; you went out on your open road alone. Screaming, "Regina, you say you know me, but I don’t know ya. You don’t wanna know what I’ll do to ya if you lay hands on me or my family again. Jester, don’t cry; big girls, we don’t cry except today, and tomorrow, and every time someone we love dies." I never knew how much I hurt ya. Now you’re living on the water; you are drifting off like sirens in the trees, snow in windy March, and fire hydrant sprinklers. So long, like forever, it’s been awhile since I’d seen yer sleepy parking lots and siblings drowning in beer; it’s been hard for us this year.
