about

The moment of divine reckoning for a disgraced CEO---Kenneth Lay. Go ahead look him up.

lyrics

Electric current television
flicker across the ghost of subdivision
so lock the door
close the blinds
fountain pen in your hand one last time
ground control
remote hands
the devil stands idle, you’ve laid your plans

Lay Kenneth Lay
Lay down your fountain pen today
and see Emily play
take the key to your soul and burrow deep
into the rabbit’s hole

Loose yourself in a drummer’s rhythm
he’s drumming a marathon of exorcism
while numbers crash and trickle down
pay roll caps, cashing in on a phony crown
Vicodin rigged self-esteem, off-shore signing bonus
was it a dream?

Lay Kenneth Lay
Lay down your fountain pen today
and see Emily play
take the key to your soul and burrow deep
into the rabbit’s hole

Lay Kenneth Lay
Lay down your fountain pen today
and see Emily play
the king is dead, but he’s not forgotten
fruit once ripe on the vine
now is rotten!
