penelope sleeps all day
she can't get out of bed
her mother thinks that she's crazy and she wishes she were dead
got laid off at factory
she's home the whole day through collect a check from the government and puts it in the stew
she's happy, she's healthy she hasn't a care
she wonders, she worries she washes her hair
she listens to the radio
and sips a cup of tea
stare down at the telly
while she reads her magazines
a day, a month, a year
god look at the time
put your hands on to your heart make sure you're still alive


from Mexico City Heart, released February 17, 2015
