The town where she was born like town where I was born
Was built by white settlers seeking gold and other treasures
Like me she feels uncomfortable in the clothing of her ancestors
"It's not easy", she would say, dipping her fingers into the ashtray
"It's not easy to erase your blood"

Rock me now
(Sing with me)
In the arms of cobwebs
Roll me out
In the arms of cobwebs

Once she found a man to treasure
And together they'd planted flowers of warning, fearing frost
Late on shallow evenings while their enemies slept
They hammered the soil asking for answers in green

His value declined
When he offered his name
Why did he offer?

His value declined
When he offered his name
His value declined
When he offered his name

When she was seven years old she saw a man get shot
But no one came for a long time
Because it happened in a remote parking lot in Las Vegas
And she was waiting for her mom to come back
From working the blackjack table at the Circus Circus Casino

And that night her mom said that
The two of them and the now dead guy
Were the only three people who ever really lived in Las Vegas
Everybody else just arrived
Ate their complimentary shrimp cocktail and left

Rock me now
In the arms of cobwebs
(It's a one room city, yeah)
(So can you roll with me?)
Roll me out
In the arms of cobwebs
(It's a one room city, yeah)

His value declined
When he offered his name
(You rent a one room city, yeah)

It's a one room city, yeah
The wall to wall to wall to wall
Goes to street to street to street
