Written in the last of 2009.


Get in my car, I’ll take you for a ride
All the way down I-70
You can sleep in the back, I’ll play a tape you like
With songs soft and heavenly

We’ll stop in Effingham
and get a dinner plate that’s just your size
With piles of fries

You’ll draw the best you can despite the moving car
And fill up pages with your characters

Get on my bus, we’ll ride away from here
‘Cos school is the scariest
I read all the books that are coming out this year
You can learn ‘em vicarious

We’ll build a skyscraper on Merrydale Hill and sell the view
To people coming through
We’ll make a fortune off the people that we know
They love us so

We keep the lights on and the meter running
Puttin’ on a big show just for you
‘Bout time you carry some of that fat weight sugar
Too big for us to carry through

We’ll bind you to the taxman’s treatise of employ and break your back
To pick up all your slack
He’s coming next for your guitar so look alive
And write jingles for pizzerias


from A Place In The Hills, released August 20, 2011
Magilla on steel-string guitar, nylon-string guitar, bass, cajon, percussion, synths, organ, and cake pan
