Maybe like a polecat, like a cannon
You’ll be praying for days like the nuts and bolts
Like the uniforms that they wore in the Civil War
And scratching your cat claws at the pavement
See you coming across the room
Like a walking weight, like a cannon that’s been fired

Hey there operator
Don’t you know you’re trading cash for crows?
Hey there operator
Don’t you know there’s water on the bow?

"I do declare," said the governor, "let’s get these people moving faster"
"I do declare," said the father to his son, "we’re not hurting anyone at all"
On the beach, in the garden
On the playground when you started it up
Change your life into a postcard version of white snow
Or so the story goes
And the horse that you rode in on
Will be the horse that’s taking you home

    General CommentIts god damn amazing.

    But isn't it "vision of white snow"? not version?

    thats what I hear anyway.

    Bear vs. Shark is probably one of the best bands ever, and hardly anyone will ever know. Maybe it's better that way.

    General CommentMarc introduced the song in Tallahassee as "a dance song for cats." So take that for what its worth, whether he was joking or not. I think that absurdity and introspection play a large part in the naming of everything they produce.
