lyrics

Sunshine Capital of the World,
built on a broken back,
Home of the lonely girl
picking up after

all the slack
from sociopaths and charming slackers;
she writes spells to mask attackers
from themselves, and
from each other, and
from their mothers –
Trying to learn to love what smothers in the

Sunshine Capital of My Heart:
missing you every day
bummer to live apart
when new days start with:

CSA flags waving above
your CSA share, left with love
while children at the shooting range
scare bored suburban boutique gays,
and all
smelling so fine:
dry grass and red wine

Sunset Empire in the West,
feeding you blood-blessed greens
Baby, who knows you best?
Get laid to rest

where the sun goes down like alcohol
among the redwoods' lungs, with all
the joy of curing something small –
here's headache for your Tylenol
and all
smelling so sweet:
asphalt and dry heat

...and if the sky, Smog Monster brown
or Caribbean Enya blue,
could spare a pissing afterthought
for shady queens the likes of you
I'd be the

Sunshine Queen of the Whole North State,
raisin in all that sun
hell at a honey rate,
lovin to hate to

drive in spirals underneath
the hazy sky, the swelling buzz
I get it's rich to call this grief
but headache is as headache does
and I
am feelin so down
I wanna tell the whole town

We've got the sun
We've got the sun
We've got the sun feelin so down
she wants to burn the whole town
