should i treasure the red
or treasure the light
the bitter juniper is still food
pull down your pants by the shi'ites
tire my tounge over your gums

oh honey bee
buzz upon me
slip me a note
oh God, what a donkey
it smells like Fallujah
a hammock rod
this shirt clings like dander
this kiss scrapes like rust

tiny, tiny paws covered in the dirt
tiny purring sounds rising like a pike
stabbing my hand a sailor
this last night of ours' pathetic
tiny, tiny paws turning into dust
tiny shining eye, rolling like a die
casting my fate to the gristmill
this last night of ours
finally i'm surprised

oh, tuck away those ancient jugs of yours
reaquainted with the brush of a skinflake
cooped up between a jerk and a hard place
you sight your eye off the tip of your gun

tiny, tiny paws covered in the dirt
tiny purring sounds rising like a pike
stabbing my hands like a savior
this last night of ours forever
tiny, tiny paws tunring into dust
tiny shining eye, rolling like a die
casting my faith to the wayside
this last night of ours
finally i'm surprised

    General Comment"Muppet Face," with its howl of wind-tunnel guitar, house beats and eerie harmonium, talks about "a cat dying and the negative understanding of how fucked up my sexual self is and how disgusted I have become with myself in regards to this."

    General Commentwhen i listen to this song it sounds like he's saying, "tuck away those ancient JUGS of yours, reaquainted with the brush of a skinflake."

    like if a lonely older woman brushed up against somebody for the first time in years. how it would feel.

    those lyrics wouldn't surprise me coming from jamie.

    General Comment"Quite incorrect"? Jeeze. The first verse was the only really embarrasing part. Besides that your precious xiu xiu trio actually had some things wrong, I mean "siren lights over your gums?" C'mon. I changed these lyrics to what I think that they had right over me. I'm still uncertain about some parts though.

    Also, I like the that "ancient jugs" comment, but judging from every version I've heard, I'm pretty positive that it's "drugs". Bye.

    tiny, tiny paw turning into dust
    tiny shining eye, rolling like a die
    casting my fate to the gristmill
    this last night of ours
    a frightening surprise

    untuck away those ancient jugs of yours
    reaquainted with the brush of a skinflake
    cooped up between a jerk and a hard place
    you sight your eye off the tip of your gun

    tiny, tiny paws covered in the dirt

    General CommentI think you're right about the cat stuff, and 'jugs' does make a lot more sense now that I REALLY think about it and REALLY listen to it. Also I REALLY think that it was necessary for you to post all of the lyrics again. Also can you guys not hear the 'D' sound at the end of the chorus?
