lyrics

what's the lonliest city
spin a globe arond
put your finger down
and it's there
or where a dart lands
on a map of the world
in what region are folks lonliest the most
on what coast do ghosts go to be alone
when they don't want to haunt no one
nothing at all
it's called the break of day
the labor's re-divided
okay, go stoke a flame
but leave its glow at home
glowering with no one to warm
retro-colonial strawberry roan
or blue if you choose
or perhaps a dancing stallion
makes Pangean pan-pipes
play tunes old
we recall its shape through song
we brought these beasts across the sea
while celebrating sex with mermaids
we would marry fish if we could
we would re-marry every shore
with our old and lonely flag

yeah, I'm talking to all you people in Antartica
the Tropics aren't above you (naw)
I bet you know what I mean
