lyrics

Standing on the corner
At Mustapha's store,
I watched you navigate that sea like a pirate
With the chipped and painted
Fingers of your hands
Spread wide, wide,
Around their hypothetical throats

I watched you watch the boys come down
Too stupid to see
the carnival stretched out beside them
Flying over the carousel
Knocking over the liquor store
and you, and you, watch it all like a video
And you, and you, watch it all like a video

You are an enemy ship in
subject tropical seas
the dream
of gas station attendants
Drenched
in the blue eye shadow of the world
Drenched
in the blue eye shadow of the world
and you, and you, watch it all like a video
and you, and you, watch it all like a video
