They caught up with Simon Peter.
They hung him upside down.
They took the fisherman’s ring
off his finger.
They hung him upside down.
We all gotta sell out somebody sometimes.
Gotta take care of ourselves right now.
Meet me in the booth in the back
by the bathroom.
St. Peter’s hanging upside down.

Upper 20s. Seventh Avenue. Just south
of the Garden.
He’s usually here by noon. He gets dropped
off in a Honda.
Mustang Sally’s Monday morning.
I was watching out the window.
I was shaking off the evening.
I was leaning on my faith.

They caught up with Simon Peter.
They hung him upside down.
Nero Augustus Ceasar
And the cross under the crown.
We all gotta sell out somebody sometimes.
Gotta take care of ourselves right now.
Meet me in the booth in the back
by the bathroom.
St. Peter’s hanging upside down.

Can you hear me Mother Mary?
I’m unsteady in the lobby.
Would you send someone to get me?
I’m barely hanging on like some
claymation fawn
In the blue light of dawn.
Now she’s up in her room. She’s
watching Disney cartoons.
She always cries when they’re
kissing the prince.

They surrounded Simon Peter.
The soldiers knocked him down.
They tore the fisherman’s ring
from his finger.
They hung him upside down.

I came into the city I was searching for
this one specific girl.
I met her in 1999 up in Windows
on the World.
I was desperate to make a connection.
I was from another planet. It was
very far away.

They caught up with Simon Peter.
They hung him upside down.
They took the fisherman’s ring
off his finger.
They hung him upside down.
We all gotta sell out somebody sometimes.
Kid you gotta lay your burden down.
I’m speeding through a Saturday morning.
St. Peter’s hanging upside down

They surrounded Simon Peter.
The soldiers knocked him down.
Nero Augustus Ceasar
And the cross under the crown.
We all gotta sell out somebody sometimes.
Lets just keep it cool for right now.
Meet me in the booth in the back
by the bathroom.
St. Peter’s hanging upside down.
