UNDER THE BIG WHITE STAR (2001) by REBECCA F. This is life, welcome to it. And I am a friend. We all got more than one choice to be human. I see who will be your little conscience, but I don’t affect to that. I don’t know a mudslide from Mark Ruckman’s eyes. No I don’t, no I don’t. I can see you opening your eyes in the car, and see you opening your eyes in shower; see you opening your eyes when you’re alone. I can see you opening your eyes in the forest; see you opening your eyes in the station; see you opening your eyes in the edge light. I can see you crying for your eyes in the bedroom; see you opening your eyes in the classroom; see you crying for your life to just get home. CHORUS Under the big white star, you’re gonna know who you are. And one day there was a big moon, half-half of a Lake Michigan. The sky sky was red and purple, and frightening. There were many burned people down at the subway strip. And all around like a movie, gravity dripped. I can see you opening your eyes on the job, and see you sitting like a king on your throne, and see you running for your life to just get home – home. I can see you burning like a wick where you work, and see you pointing at the birds that come and go; see you floating at the highway rumbles.

JUDA (1996/7) by REBECCA F. Bird’s nest on the door, (he’s already late), and fast food on the floor, (he ain’t anything), and silence in the moor of desperation. Carbon on the floor, (he’s a scientist), and thoughts of nevermore, (he never lied like this), and silence in the moor of desperation. Yeah. Pictures on the floor, (he loved his father), and drawings on the board, (he loved his sister), and pennies on the floor, (he loved his auntie). Hey hey hey hey - Juda, Juda, Juda, Juda, Juda, Juda! Did you ever know your life would go like that? Did you ever know your life would go like that? Daylight on the floor, (you loved the night!), Ice in the drawer (of your life), and you slept scores of life away, anyway. Carbon on the floor? To be like that, you answered ancient orders, older than the – hey hey hey hey hey! Momma will you stop lookin at me like that? I’m trying to be a man! Tryin to live out all these lives as best as I can! Have you never seen a little sailor drinking coffee in a shelter? Hey hey hey hey - Juda, Juda, Juda, Juda, Juda! Juda? Help me! Juda, Juda, Juda, Juda, Juda! Juda! Help me!

DEREK (2003) by REBECCA F. My mind is gone, it is on fire. Cousin left me alone for the wire. He traveled backwards to his girl, and then I was alone. Then I was alone. Each day I try convince myself that there is good and nothing else. But why why why why why do we do? When there’s nothing but a tune? Nothing but a tune. People will tell you, “Not now, boy.” But look what they tell you: “Wait a long time." Now, people will kill you; they only care about themselves. And look what they sell you. The people will fell you, like the forest for the trees. They’ll busk and they’ll bell you - but not you, and not from me. They’ll ax and they’ll el you: a self-service industry. But look what they sell you! Yeah, yeah, yeah. The world is gone, it is on fire. Capitalism is the pyre. But why why why why why do we do? When it's nothing but you? It’s all about you! Nothing but you! We see ourselves alone and we don’t see we’ve all been grown together, together. We’d rather cut and stone and stick it to each other than together - when it’s all about you. Nothing but you. People will tell you: “Not now, boy.”

THE GIRL (1996) by REBECCA F. Which one of you took her eyes and made them weepy? Which one of you took her ears and filled them with snow? Which one of you goes to the place in your head, that has an island? She wants to go. CHORUS: The girl, the girl is. The girl, the girl is. Which one of you kicked her with your black shiny shoes? Which one of you took her nose and hooked it in her mouth? Which one of you told her Arizona don’t exist, and told her that? Which one of you told her that her listlessness was possible and quick? (Leave on your way home and watch all your football and stop all your fighting.) Which one of you had the gall to make her scared of herself and the dark? Which one of you told her wedding bells were tombstones on the blackened sand? Which one of you held her hand and pressed your nails so hard until she bled? Which one of you made her mind, and made her hate the life she had instead? You aren’t alone, you are a one of many others.
