Zevon Warren - Transverse City

rate me

written by Stefan Arngrim & Warren Zevon 1989

Told my little Pollyanna

There's a place for you and me

We'll go down to Transverse City

Life is cheap and Death is free

Past the condensation silos

Past the all-night trauma stand

We'll be there before tomorrow

Pollyanna take my hand

Show us endless neon vistas

Castles made of laser lights

Take us to the shopping sector

In the vortex of the night

Past the shiny mylar towers

Past the ravaged tenements

To a place we can't remember

For a time we won't forget

Here's the hum of desperation

Heres the test tube mating call

Here's the latest carbon cycle

Here's the clergy of the mall

Here's the song of shear and torsion

Here's the bloodbath magazine

Here's the harvest of contusions

Here's the narcoleptic dream

Told my little Pollyanna

Here's a place where we can stay

We have come to see tomorrow

We have given up today

Down among the dancing quanta

Everything exists at once

Up above in Transverse City

Every weekend lasts for months

Here's the hum of desperation

Heres the test tube mating call

Here's the latest carbon cycle

Here's the clergy of the mall

Here's the witness and the victim

Here's the relatives' remains

Here's the well-known double helix

Here's the poisoned waves of grain

Here's the song of shear and torsion

Here's the bloodbath magazine

Here's the harvest of contusions

Here's the narcoleptic dream

Here's the hum of desperation
