"Settle Down, Zelda" as written by and Timothy Bracy....

in for a dime, out for a dollar
back in for a dime again
i want to resign any pretense of valor
and find some way to give in
well she reels and she lurches through the burrow of churches
where a man dare stand in her way
after all of the urges some virtue emerges but finally you still gotta pay

your mother is a widow and your brothers' at war
your father drank himself to death in 1994, oh so awful
you pulled him from the rubble and you drew him up a bath
you went through all this trouble just to watch him break himself in half
he wanted to die where he was born he'd already dug a hole in the ground
before he left ya he held ya said "hey settle up zelda and then zelda settle down"

well honey i know that rings and material things ain't exactly what ya had in mind
but you trembled and dissembled then you start to resemble all those people that you left behind
life isnt permanant, nobody cares
tell me the time and place and honey i'll be there

let your bitter heart shine, i don't wanna refine
you throw a blanket over a bird cage
but you're so busy running that you run out of money and your face is showing your age
and baby it don't mean shit to me that you got a history
god knows that we've both been around
here's to the last boy that held ya
hey now settle up zelda, and then zelda, settle down

now the summer turns fall and we live in this squalor and our time is nearly upon us
you're in for a dime then you're in for a dollar but that ain't all that its gonna cost
so maybe i just might be the last person you see
or maybe it'll be the other way around
oh i wish i could tell ya just to settle up zelda, but you ain't gonna settle down
