Track Name: The Widow and Her Money
"Let her”
That's what I said to the guard
Regarding the widow and her money

I’m her debtor
And now she’s gonna finally see the view she bought me
From this 18th floor penthouse suite

Where the Detroit skyline
Flips me off every night
And I return the sentiment

Better
A better bettor would have cashed out
And fled for the Gulf Coast

But my sweaters
Have retained Most Favored Status
Right here in my top dresser drawer

Where they share the antique air
With some cocaine and cab fare
And a revolver loaded with a prayer
And a hand-written letter care of

The widow and her money

Years of confusion and running around
I kind of fell asleep within
Until reawakened by my sins
"I think that you've been found, sir.
The widow, she is down here.
Should I let her in?"

And you know what I said?
"Let her"

The Detroit skyline
Has been witness to all my crime
And I can feel its steely eye
As for the first and last time

I greet the widow and her money
Track Name: Joy
Joy looks down
At the milk on the ground
Like the rest of this junk
She knows I won’t clean it up

I’ll be sitting around
Gene Autrey’s voice will be the only sound
Coming from some ancient cassette
From God knows when

Joy picks her book up off the floor
Blows me a kiss
And walks to the door

Joy I’m no clown
And I can hear how you pray
In hush hush tones
To keep the Devil at bay

I’ve got a bottle and a frown
And if you leave again today
I’m turning one upside-down
And the other one will stay

You remind me of my dad
A little less smart perhaps
But a lot less sad

Joy still rides her bicycle
With rusty wheels and broken spokes
As if there’s someone out there worth talking to
When Joy is gone I might as well
Let this whole place go to hell
Her little book no longer gets me through
‘Cause not a word of it was true

Joy knew no bounds
When she came home to stay
It was a beautiful day
But I said things that I can’t unsay

Then word came down
That it was time to evacuate
But we stood our ground
In this evacuated state

There’s no more cars on the road
But Joy still takes the bike path
Everywhere she goes

Joy still rides her bicycle
With rusty wheels and broken spokes
As if there’s someone out there worth talking to
When Joy is gone I might as well
Let this whole place go to hell
Her little book no longer gets me through
‘Cause not a word of it was true

Joy looks down
At the milk on the ground
She starts to laugh ...
