lyrics

EVANGELINE, I

Oh, Evangeline! Evangeline, I
am reminded of you always by the smell of gasoline.
Oh, I come burning down the interstate.
And I’m still believing in a life -long mate.
Oh, Evangeline,
you are my sight unseen.
Oh, Evangeline,
you are my Arco Supreme.

Oh, Evangeline! Evangeline, I
sing along with that song about a faraway dream
where you’re a happy girl and I’m a happy boy.
But the voice that I hear doesn’t sing for happy joy.
“Oh, Evangeline!” it cries. “A dream never lies.
And if Evangeline dies
please don’t open up my eyes.”

Oh I, I — I felt the pain.
But, Inside I knew I wasn’t insane.
And you, you — You’re so pretty and vain. Oh,
but, I knew you were never to blame. Oh, no never…

Oh, Evangeline! Evangeline, I
saw your picture on the cover of a magazine.
Was it you that kept me driving on down the white line?
Was it you in the desert crying ‘Help!’ on Channel 9?
Oh, Evangeline,
are you still at large?
Or just a highway mirage?
Please be my honest garage.

Death in Los Fumos [1996] blended song poetry, skits and found sound while How Like Ghosts Are We [1998] returned to traditional music.
