The Last Days Of Sugar by ThelonesomeKid
all lyrics by gretchen seichrist 2017 copyright ThelonesomeKid Dr. Gretchenrecords

The tickets to see Prospero
were 150 each
it took so long to reach him
wasn’t it a shame i just went
just went to sleep?

like
the repetitions rule and rink

like
your anthems panicky cling
like
the workhorse saws it’s meaning
like
the circling human boat being

and the ball in the air
and the last days of sugar
when the special treatment ends
and the people are on to you
and the last days of sugar

under girl went through the traditions and child gate
and the teachers can’t keep their decades straight
she was unpersuaded but targeted to accept their fate
of salivating at dead things
and beyond that she was wholly alone
in her truth and rebellious moral code
like
the natural heart will call you to deliver
like
the haggard pledge put to the test
like
the stumbling lover quest
and in drought all revealed as brute and beggar

and the ball in the air
and the last days of sugar
when the special treatment ends
and the people are on to you
and the last days of sugar

as for the old poet with his singular hold
I’ve heard he’s still around
he always said he didn’t have the answer — leave him alone
when he got to his final resting home I guess he’ll bolt the door
outside there’s some kids spread out like a blanket on the road
when they shut it all down they’ll make that lion roar
baby that’s where you and i will be found by two lions
like
the natural heart will call you to deliver
like
the haggard pledge put to the test
like
the stumbling lover quest
and in drought all revealed as brute and beggar
and the ball in the air
