"Surgery I Stole" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Surgery I stole from you
Surgery you stole from me
He believes in apathy
All a dream
Could be all a dream
All that I have seen of him
His money is such a lucky sin
Your eyes see sweet
But your mouth tastes tin
The toothbrush is black
That's the place where you're at
And snake holds a knife
And snake holds a knife
All I see brings you close to me
All I do brings me close to you
Summer snake, dance for dance's sake
Into far away
Into far away, far away
Into far away

    General CommentIn an interview Devendra said this song has some to do with how people in Venezula are very much into plastic surgery. Going as far as giving their dogs surgery to look like family members that have passed away. Hmmmm, perhaps was just a thought that crossed his mind when writing the song and got stuck, not necessarily the meaning of the song.
