This design is inspired by the lyrics of ‘Blake Says’ by the amazing Amanda Palmer. It features an outine of the USA state of Alaska with a tattoo-style script with the lyrics, ‘We all go to Alaska when we die’ written across it. I adore this song, and I hope that other Amanda Palmer fans will love this t-shirt! It is also available as paper goods and stickers, yay!
‘Blake says’ by Amanda Palmer
Blake says no one ever really loved him,
They just faked it to get money from the government.
And Blake thinks angels grow when you plant angel dust.
He shakes his pretty head,
But darling, trust me, trust me,
He’s no valentine.
Though he said he would be mine,
His heart is in Alaska all the time.
Blake stays underwater for the most part
He collects loose change for All Tomorrow’s Parties,
And when Blake dates girls with tattoos of the pyramids,
He breaks their hearts
By saying it’s not permanent.
But in his velvet mind,
He believes with all his might,
We all go to Alaska when we die.
Blake makes friends but only for a minute,
He prefers the things he orders from the internet.
And Blake’s been having trouble with his head again,
He takes his pills,
But never takes his medicine.
Like Candy in his prime,
He likes his shirts to shine,
And when it’s two o’clock it feels like nine.
Blake says he is sorry he got through to me,
If it’s ok he’ll call right back and talk to the machine.
Blake says it looks like acid rain today,
He takes the fish inside,
He’s very kind that way.
But just like Caroline,
He doesn’t seem to mind,
The globe is getting warmer all the time.
It’s still cold in Alaska,
It’s still cold in Alaska…
