I just woke up and everything's brighter I just saw the sun on my pile of debris I just felt my load get 100 pounds lighter I just realized what a deep breath can be You make my deadbeat heart beat hard I gotta clean these skulls and mummies off and get em out of my yard Voice from the other side, come tell the future wrong You make my deadbeat heart beat strong I gotta brush these leaves aside and drink the cold fresh air I gotta clean these valves and hoses before I can touch your hair Tiny explosions in tiny rooms all get together and they sound like the sea Now the smoke's clearing out of all of our wombs, and I can hear you and you can hear me You make my deadbeat heart beat hard I gotta clean these skulls and mummies off and get em out of my yard Tiny explosions in tiny rooms all get together and they sound like the sea Now I'm feeling my deadbeat heart beating me I'm cleaning up and I hope you'll come see me soon I'm on deadbeat alley by the shed where they're keeping the moon By the shed where they're tying up and beating up the moon By the shed where they're tying up and beating up the moon Let's you and me set free the moon Let's you and me set free the moon, the moon

I just came from the doctor, she says that I'm just fine But there's a black hole on the X-ray, once was yours but now it's mine I can fill it with 31 flavors, I can hog the bed and snore I ain't gonna think about you at all because I ain't in love no more Some women think they like me, and I think about them too And I never never never never never never never never never never think about you I can flirt with crabs and crawfish and the fruit at the grocery store The whole world is my oyster, because I ain't in love no more I live alone with my smart phone and a broken-ass computer I put up bars to heal my scars and keep my heart safe from looters Some women think they like me but they can smell that something's wrong They can somehow view I got ditched by you, then they smile and march along Some women think they like me, and I think about them too And I never never never never never never never never never never think about you I can flirt with calamari rings and stare at the seafood store The whole world is my oyster, because I ain't in love no more.

Vulture Sing 03:36
I got something to call home A shifting sand bed web of telephones And I don't wanna leave you alone But I'm pulled in all directions but my own. Morning is the coldest time of day And I just found the coldest thing to say You love how the rain makes the red clay brighter You love how the darkness makes your soft skin whiter You make the best out of everything You love to hear that vulture sing to you. We got stuck in the wrong time We're out of breath and out to lose our minds How did you get so blind? You run to the things that treat you so unkind. Nighttime is the longest time of day when you come home late and you take the longest way You love how the rain makes the red clay brighter You love how the plague makes the world's load lighter You make the best out of everything You love to hear that vulture sing to you. You love how the wind makes the houses dance Dance to the rhythm of a bad romance You call me back into the thorns and brambles You love the art of making life a shambles You make the best out of everything You love to hear that vulture sing to you.

I don't need the birds above me or the fish down in the sea You're indispensible, it's indefensable, that you'd ever be lost to me I can live without the milkman or electricity You're irreplaceible and so embraceible by the lowly likes of me You can keep the floor below me, you can have the roof above I don't need food or water, baby, so long as I've got your love I'm done with all God's creatures and the people I see You're indispensible, it's only sensable, you're the only one for me I don't need the birds above me or the fish down in the sea You're indispensible, it's indefensable, that you'd ever be lost to me I can live without the eggman goo goo goo joob or electricity You're irreplaceible and so embraceible by the lowly likes of me I don't mind the cold or if my house goes falling down The only thing that scares me is the day you're not around I'm done with all God's creatures and the people I see You're indispensible, it's only sensable, you're the only one for me

I was eating bún this morning and I spilled fish sauce on my leg I was eating bún this morning and I spilled fish sauce on my leg I don't got a lot of money, costs an extra dollar for the egg I got phở to drown my sorrows but I still hang my head down low I got phở to drown my sorrows but I still hang my head down low My baby up and left me, she don't wanna phở me any more I got a bánh mì in my pocket, gonna knock her upside the head I got a bánh mì in my pocket, gonna knock her upside the head All that pig meat and cilantro, knock any cheating woman dead
