​Transformation In The 24 Hour Deli

This song is by Cannonball Statman and appears on the album 22 (2015).

A man with a badge stopped me in the deli today,
And asked me for any identity that I had;
I stopped, I was shocked, and I rustled through my coat
To find my wallet, and I listened to the voice seeping in from his radio.

The voice screamed, "A shot killed her!
Five feet and two inches of energy,
Struck and stolen by a magnum forty-four!
A shot did her in!"

Got out of the deli,
And wrapped myself in a blanket I found on the sidewalk;
Sat down on the sidewalk, and watched the blind man across the street.
Makin' decisions! Makin' decisions now!

When I get home, I'm gonna sell my soul at the crossroads.
When I get home, I'll deactivate my Facebook account.
When I get home, I'm gonna neuter my neighbor's dog,
And then I'm gonna sleep for twenty-four hours,
And pray when I wake in the fading shadow
Of a strange, disturbing night,
I'll remain alone.

A shot killed her.
Five feet and two inches of energy,
Struck and stolen by a magnum forty-four.
A shot did her in.
