Lyrics to Miscellaneous, Non-Album Songs

A Wish for Wings That Work

A WISH FOR WINGS THAT WORK
(Appears on A Critical Christmas, the WRC Christmas Compilation)

One burned-out bulb infects the whole string.
Shorts out the house. Makes you drink.

So humor me for an hour or two
And hold me as if you have nothing better to do
We can sit up on the moon
And watch the world freeze to death

Wear a trefoil of red and green
I'll drop a trefoil as an offering

We'll apologize to the pollution-addled birds
Link arms and fly, ditch our friends without a word
Away from the ghastly sounds of breaking toys on Christmas Day
Dodge the Death Comet, watch the corpse's mohawk fray

So humor me for a minute or two
And hold me as if you have nothing better to do
We can make love on the moon
And watch the world freeze to death

We'll see Bible verses spelled out in shingles
On ice-caked Southern roofs
Brand-new video boxing gloves
Can't keep kids' hands frostbite-proof
At the Alpine Valley clusterfuck
Hippies quaff Bud Ice-Nine
We should be okay for awhile
Tell me we'll be okay
