lyrics

The pipe’s all rust, but I’m still here;
the hollow bones and veins.
They’re sexy, that’s why I’m still here,
just trying to hear about me and my guns.
And I can’t see the end too clear,
but I pronounce it nuclear.

What’s one more dead animal to me?
There’s a lot of things in nature I don’t need.
There’s no strategic target on the sea,
and no collateral damage means no harm will come to me

or the overbredth of jellyfish that welcome back the beasts,
decommissioning the dragnets.

I can’t believe who’s side you’re taking here.
Maybe he ran off and died,
but I don’t really need that deer,
I mean

what’s one more dead animal to me?
There’s a lot of things in nature that don’t bleed.

I’m thinking about buying a boat,
‘cause you and all my friends live far away,
each on a different coast,
and there’s no strategic target on the sea,
and no collateral damage means no harm will come to me

or the overbredth of jellyfish that welcome back the beasts,
decommissioning the dragnets.

The pipe’s all rust, but I’m still here;
the hollow bones and veins.
They’re sexy, that’s why I’m still here,
just trying to hear about me and my guns.
And I can’t see the end too clear,
but I pronounce it nuclear.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
