"The Snow White Diner"

THE SNOW WHITE DINER Lyrics by The Handsome Family
I am eating hash browns in the snow white diner
Outside cars are honking, flashing lights on the bridge
They're pulling a car out from the bottom of the frozen lake
A woman drove her Saturn into the black water
Killed herself and her two kids, strapped in the backseat
She'd lost her job and didn't want her kids to be poor

The diner is noisy, black coffee and sugar, baskets of dinner rolls
Outside the crowd is growing, waiting by the draw bridge
Hoping to see the dead ones face
In the booth next to me
There are two old women eating liver and onions
And they're laughing to loud and banging the table top
But then I see that they're deaf

I don't know why they're laughing
Maybe the worlds much nicer when you can't hear the cars
They make me feel better like I'm drunk on a plane
And have forgotten I'm afraid to fly
