Arraignment Song

1 August 2017

The same show every time – that’s death
Flash boat, fast cars – it’s all going to end
Go cosy, slow, investigate
Dead ten years when the letter was mailed

Flash boats, fast cars – it’s all going to end
Assume a certain monkey wrench
Dead ten years when the letter was mailed
Nice clothes, expensive dental work

Assume a certain monkey wrench
Blood pooling poetically around the fingers
Nice clothes, expensive dental work
Tropical fish and some books on the subject

Blood pooling poetically around the fingers
Back where you started with the bitter pills
Tropical fish and some books on the subject
Psychos like to work together

Back where you started with the bitter pills
Everyone has solid alibis
Psychos like to work together
Stop on one thought, think it over and over

Everyone has solid alibis
So listen and record the names
Stop on one thought, think it over and over
Who faked a will, didn’t mourn the loss?

So listen and record the names
No one wants to sit with frailty
Who faked a will, didn’t mourn the loss?
Killers get jittery in spring

No one wants to sit with frailty
A lit cigarette at a respectful distance
Killers get jittery in spring
If the family find peace, disturb it

A lit cigarette at a respectful distance
Slim chance connects you to a name
If the family find peace, disturb it
Night’s your office, shadowing pays

Slim chance connects you to a name
Go cosy, slow, investigate
Night’s your office, shadowing pays
The same show every time – that’s death
