From "How a Resurrection Really Feels" by The Hold Steady:

Her parents named her Hallelujah,
the kids they called her Holly.
And if she scared you then she's sorry.
She's been stranded at these parties.
These parties they start lovely
but they get druggy and they get ugly and they get bloody.
The priest just kinda laughed.
The deacon caught a draft.
She crashed into the Easter mass
with her hair done up in broken glass.
She was limping left on broken heels and she said,
"Father, can I tell your congregation how a resurrection really feels?"
