"Grace Kelly Blues" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
The cut-rate mime
Walking through the dirty streets
Of Paris in the hot August heat
Sun melting the fake smile away
Just looking for a place to stay

The actress gave up all her old dreams
And traded up now she is a queen
Royal families don't have time for that shit
Your crystal ball, you keep it hid

The tractor trailer driver radios:
Help me someone I'm out here all alone
Truck driving the black night away
Prayin' for the light of day

The kid in the mall works at what dog on a stick
His hat is a funny shape his heart is a brick
Taking your order he will look away
He doesn't have a thing to say

But me I'm feeling pretty good as of now
I'm not so sure when I got here or how
Sun melting the fake smile away
I think, you know, I'll be okay

    General CommentThe Grace Kelly link is obviously about the Hitchcock actress, who gave up acting to marry Prince Rainier III of the little principality of Monaco... Her biographers show that the life of a princess was not exactly living happily ever after. Old friends from Philadelphia as well as people she had known in Hollywood reported how glad she was to talk about her life in America and to be speaking English.

    General CommentThe funeral dirge at the beginning seems to be in memory of his dead loved ones and its reflecting on sadness occuring in the world. The last verse seems to be the most personal.

    But me I'm feeling pretty good as of now
    (He's doing well and coping with his loss)
    I'm not so sure when I got here and how
    (He's doesn't quite know how or when he coped)
    sun melt in the fake smile away
    (he doesn't have to pretend to be happy anymore)
    I think you know I'll be ok
    (He's gonna do just fine in life)

    I could be wrong thought, so don't take my word for it.

    General Commentoh by the way the lyrics are a bit incorrect, the actual lyrics are:

    The cut rate mime walking through the dirty streets
    Of Paris in the hot august heat
    Sun melting the fake smile away
    Just looking for a place to stay

    The actress gave up all her old dreams
    And traded up, now she is a queen
    Royal families dont have time
    for that shit
    Your crystall ball you keep it hid

    The tractor trailer driver radios
    Help me someone I'm out here on my own
    Truck driving the black night away
    Praying for the light of day

    The kid in the mall works at hot dog on a stick
    His hat is a funny shape his heart is a brick
    Taking your order he will look away
    He doesn't have a thing to say

    But me I'm feeling pretty good as of now
    I'm not so sure when I got here or how
    sun melting the fake smile away
    I think you know I'll be ok

    General CommentThis is E letting us know he's emerged from the dark tunnel of despair following the deaths of his mother and sister. This is the first song after the much darker "Electroshock Blues," which left us wondering if and when he'd jump off a bridge. This song tells us he's getting by.
