Dedicated to Patrick Sullivan.

lyrics

You know my father said the family name means shit-shoveller
because that’s what life is.
This was practically his motto when he was a mid-level bureaucrat.

(Got your) Commodore
Sixty-Four;
got your older brother’s
skating board.
In your younger sister’s jeans:
tell me again, how do you fit them things?
With a Six-Six-Six-pack;
(I heard) the bangers brought a six-pack,
and I heard you brought a half ounce
out of every bottle of –
Your mother’s at home
chain-smoking,
watching re-runs
of 7th Heaven.
It was the bummer of Ninety-Eight:
they said you had to repeat the grade.

With The Stadium Drums
The Stadium Drums
(And) The Stranded Comes
(Oh) The Stranded Comes

Have you ever been to that or there
in the springtime?
Have you ever been to this or here
in your right mind?
Where your name been
comin’ from since
where your name been
a while back
when?
(…because that’s what life is…)

(Lost your) Commodore
Sixty-Four;
lost your older brother’s
skating board.
You’re at home with your mother;
you’re grounded; watchin’ re-runs;
watchin’ 7th Heaven.
And it’s one of those episodes
where the Reverend makes the mistake
of letting Lucy give the Sermon
(because) all she ever talks about
is how much she loves her own cage.

With The Stadium Drums
The Stadium Drums
(And) The Stranded Comes
(Oh) The Stranded Comes
