This song was played at the very end of the show, during the curtain call and continued playing under the audience's exit. It is a cover of the song "Some Folks Lives Roll Easy" by Paul Simon—one of many arrangement experiments Beauty Pill attempted during the rehearsal period. Lyrics below. A more experimental variation (track 12) underscored the show's climax in scene 17.
some folks lives roll easy as a breeze drifting through a summer night
heading for a sunny day
but most folks lives... they stumble
lord, they fall
through no fault of their own, most folks never catch their stars
here I am lord, I'm knocking at your place of business
I know I ain't got no business here
but you said if I ever got so low I was busted
you could be trusted
some folks lives roll easy
some folks lives never roll at all
lord they just fall
they just fall
some folks lives
