Spirit Of James / Sincerely Oklahoma

This is NBA Sufjan. Here is my new song – a letter from Oklahoma City to James Harden. Thank you, butterfly. 

(Lyrics)

The hair upon your chin looks strange, my skeleton.

I am hungry but afraid of what you’re cookin.

Behind the line. You’re my skeleton. Behind the line.

 *

What fun we had back then… back then, my biggest sin.

I need a ride but can’t accept your drivin.

To the line. You’re my biggest sin. To the line.

 *

The forest up ahead is dark. Cool story Glen.

Not darker than the time we watched you leavin.

Cross the line. Cool story, Glen. Cross the line.

*

Whatever we were then is lost, my bearded friend.

And the ghost of James set fire to all my family.

What a line. My bearded friend. What a line.

*

Death is at my side. You win. You always win.

I touch you on your skin it’s Easter Sunday

To the line. You always win. To the line.

*

The hair upon your chin looks strange, my skeleton.
