"Title Track" as written by and Will Robinson Sheff....
All of the stage names evaporate
And it's just a blood flushed and heart rushing rates
Either to kick off too soon or stick around too late
To be far too dear or too cut rate

Hold my hand again like at the lake
Hold that mirror babe, up to my face
Hear the whippoorwill
Am I breathing still?

A Hollywood Babylon bikeathon for break dancers
All broken down in their beds
Now intravenously fed
From a bag hanging over their heads

Can I put you down for some miles?
What do you say?
?Cause don't you know it's going to be a long, long way
But if you've got the cash, I'm ready to bust my ass

So take this thin broken down circus clown
Reject and give her the name of a queen
Don't I know her from the mezzanine?
She didn't look like no princess to me

But with the proper words bestowed
And with her morning shoot, her evening clothes
Don't call her a prostitute, well, she ain't one of those
Just call her a proper little statue come unfroze

    General CommentI'm sorry, the last line doesn't make sense. I tried to hear something else but that's all I could get.

    "In New England, legend says the Whip-poor-will can sense a soul departing, and can capture it as it flees."

    General CommentThe last line makes sense. A proper little statue come unfroze, as in a statue who has come to life.

    Good song

    General CommentI've thought a lot about what I think this song means, and I think it's about celebrity and popular media. Especially the last verse, which reminds me a lot of the situation that I kept hearing about involving Britney Spears. Everyone seemed to be talking about what she was up to, what she was doing, there was a lot of bad language being thrown around about her (is it still that way?).
    I'd go on, but I'm having trouble making the case for it from what I understand in my head.
