Song for My Stepfather

You have got that look in your eyes
In the pinprick place where kindness goes to die
I'll be 6 years old next year
You erase me

You'll be sorry, you always feel sorry later on
When you come around to say so, I will be gone
And in my place, meet my letter-perfect body double
You erase me

And a few years later
I set out on my own
Learned to take the reins up all by myself
Dug the spurs in clean down to the bone

But all that comes later, now there's only you and me
And the replica where my body used to be
You can go ahead and hit him, he feels no pain at all
You erase me
You erase me

Stable Boy Song

Here come the times of changing tide
Here come the days of light and grace
Here come the hours of wordless wondrousness
Light, light will fill this humble place

When you come, the stars will shine brighter than spun gold
When you come, the world will seem shiny and new
My mom told me that someday someone like you would come to set things right
'Til you come, I'll keep this place ready for you

I saw them riding up the road
And I swept and scrubbed the stable twice
Filled it with golden yellow straw, sweet and clean
I did my best to make things nice

When you come, the stars will shine brighter than spun gold
When you come, the world will seem shiny and new
My mom told me that someday someone like you would come to set things right
Until you come, I'll keep this place ready for you

Tulsa Imperative 1

Your momma's failed wheat field
Was a good place to lie down together
Three weeks deep into the guts of summer
We sweat like hogs and I felt light as a feather

I saw a disk-like object
Reflected in your eyes
And the noise grew louder
As we looked up to the skies

And the sleek silver body had lights along the side
And the sleek silver body had lights all underneath
I remember the warm air blowing in our faces
I remember the heat running through me

There was no one worth telling
There was nothing we could do
And I was real quiet as I lifted the keys from the kitchen table
I was looking right at you

And your hand brushed against mine
And it shook me inside
As all along the night sky
I watched our futures collide

And the car's new headlights cut through the darkness
As the oil dripped silently to the pavement underneath
I remember the warm air burning our faces
I remember the heat running through me

Footnotes

  1. This isn't an annotation, exactly, but this is my favorite Mountain Goats song. I haven't put it online (although my tattoo artist has, if you can find it), but I have a tattoo from Tulsa Imperative on my body that I love almost as much as the song itself.
