THE ROOM ACROSS THE LAKE

Sister Carrie was a con.
Her writ of execution was a foregone conclusion
When they caught her on the take and didn't tell her.
They sent me to the room across the lake to kill her.

Sister Carrie's new career
Was based on exploitation of her old fear of strong men
Who could see she was a fake and didn't tell her.
They sent me to the room across the lake to kill her.

Se casó con un mojado,
Dos veces ya casado, con ambición de poder.
El maton era su espejo,
Realmente un pendejo con atroz pasión por joder.

Sister Carrie's in my sights.
I see her through the window walking naked down the hall,
Leaving white men in her wake who'll never tell her
They sent me to the room across the lake to kill her.

Sister Carrie's by the phone.
I think I'll ring her home and ask her what it's like to die
With all those deals to make, but I won't tell her
They sent me to the room across the lake to kill her.
