lyrics

Jan came to pick us up
in his new convertible
and we drove straight out to the beach

the sun charged the batteries
on Lena's GPS
we laughed at its accent
and its stupid mistakes
but its intentions were good
and I guess that matters

looking out from eight miles up
the pilot checks her flight plan
sees a backwards
unexploded
inverted
star

and no one on the freeway in heaven
and no one in the bicycle lane in heaven
and everybody losing their minds
because no one's on the freeway in heaven
and no one's in the bicycle lane in heaven
and no one hears the sirens go off
because we're all in our houses asleep

this was protected land
but God built an arsenal
and now there's a hole in the beach

so we found another beach
three exits down
our parents named us after
not a goddamned thing
but their intentions were good
and I hope that matters

looking up we see a light
flash three times every second
in a line with other lights
which also flash
decide
dirty cops or allied ghosts
or satellites reflected
either way we're
unexploded
inverted
stars

and no one's on the freeway in heaven
and no one's in the bicycle lane in heaven
inflation's getting out of control
but the money's fake so no one cares
and no one's on the freeway in heaven
and no one's in the bicycle lane in heaven
and no one hears the sirens go off
and no one should
because everybody's free
