A good friend of mine, who spent a couple months at Mclean's hospital during a rough patch, recounted the story of a guy he met during his time there who had jumped off the Tobin Bridge and was taken out of the mystic river completely unschathed by the Boston police. That story along with Bush administration despondency of the time (wrote this one in 2005) inspired me to write what my idea of the Boston rapture would be like.


They’re standin’ in line for the Tobin-nosedive
Standin’ in line for the Tobin-nosedive
Of which there’s no easy way out

And when the planes come down
I’ll be a man about town
Hebrews, Christians, and Muslims devout

With your worst realized dreams
And your guttural screams
I will cackle with the bums

Payback’s a bitch
With your face in a ditch
In the dirtiest of Dorchester’s slums

The cops are getting nervous
And they won’t admit defeat

Let’s face fact my friend
They won’t even clean the blood off the street

So consult your Rabbi
And ball your French whores
They’ll tell you the same
When it rains it pours

Its too late to find Jesus
God knows he don’t need us
And in the meanwhile
I’ll stand here in style

As the queue makes its haste
For the Mystic to taste

So jump right in line
For the Tobin-Nosedive

I wouldn’t talk jive about that Tobin-Nosedive

And I hope you arrive for the Tobin- Nosedive
