"Homecoming queen" as written by and Mark Linkous....
A horse, a horse
My kingdom for a horse
Rattling on magnetic fields

Yes, I did use up
The last box of sparklers
Before they went bad
Got wet or decayed

Homecoming queen, homecoming queen

Teeth what were sharp
Are ground down and done
My crooked spine becoming more brittle
What once grew straight
And tall t'wards the sun
Absorbing back down
To dirt like a sponge

Homecoming queen, homecoming queen

    General CommentBeing the first song on their debut album, I wonder... could this song be where the band got their name? They talk about horses and sparklers, it's a longshot, but... :P
    Gorgeous song.

    My OpinionThat's exactly what I thought too Willboe, and I think you're right. It's sort of an introduction of the band I guess. I think from the up tempo songs "Cow" is their best one and for the slow burners nothing hurts quite as much as "Most Beautiful Widow in Town".
