"The Princess And The Pony" as written by and Sean Matthew Tillman....
I couldn't sleep so I took a pill
with a dirty glass of water from a low pressure hell
Someone buy a round before my liver fails
and you know it will

How many of you will be
left to make a scene
at my funeral party
Set my soul at ease by spinning wire
as I lay on my side
cause it's the earth which I have known since birth

So clap your hands if you wanna be
the little princess who finally gets the pony
or the one that steals the life from me
With that long sleeve thrift you found in Grand Forks
to cover up your track marks
Cuz when you finally come down
the pony you've been riding around town
turns out to be a man
And then overheated crimping iron burns your hands again

How many of you be will be
left to drink whiskey
at my funeral party
Remember to bring your flask
and pour a shot for
your dead homie

Shake your ass around my casket
Shake your ass around my casket
Shake your ass around my casket
and bring your beach blankets
Volley balls, wine coolers
Spin your favorite records.

    General Commentisn't it, "remember to bring a flask and pour a shot for your dead HOMIE"? and the line about a "dirty glass of water"... it doesn't sound like "low pressure hell",but it doesn't sound like "...well" either, which would seem to make the most sense to me... also I don't think he's saying "long sleeve grip" but that's what it sounds like... someone clear this shit up for me!

    General Commenti figured these out by myself a while ago, the only two differences i have are below, starred:

    with that long sleeve *thrift* you found in grand forks
    to cover up your track marks
    cuz when you finally come down the pony you've been riding around town turns out to be a man
    and then over heated *crimping* iron burns your hands again

    General Commentoh yeah, and it is most definitely "pour a shot for your dead *homie*"

    General CommentOk, I made some corrections. Yeah, I did a pretty bad job with that... thanks for clearing it up for me. Also, i'm almost positive he's saying "low pressure hell". I fixed most of the errors, but they're not showing up... i'm guessing it'll just take a little bit.

    as for what the song means, the beginning makes me think of an accidental overdose, reminicient of nick drake almost, and his thoughts as he's dying, or maybe just falling asleep, thinking he's dying.

    General Commenti always understood it to be 'low pressure -pail-" as in bucket.
    whatever, it's a fabulous song. lots of smack references.
