the sky is falling like a
sock of cocaine in the
ministry of information

subway train's derailing
heads decapitating
catch her reflection and it seems to sing to me

and i say lalalala lalalala lalalala lalalalala
lalalala lalalala lalalala lalalalala

she's a warm bodega
high on noreaga
strung out in brooklyn like it's 1983

she wears her legs around her
neck like a piece of ice
her smile's a neon marque hipsters eat for free

and i say lalalala lalalala lalalala lalalalala
lalalala lalalala lalalala lalalalala

i am falling like a
sock of cocaine in the
ministry of information

i'm a warm bodega
high on noreaga
strung out in brooklyn cause i fell in love with her

and i say lalalala lalalala lalalala lalalalala
lalalala lalalala lalalala lalalalala

moon cut moon cuts tiny like eyelash
lonely cat nap whisper lonely cat nap whisper
moon cut moon cuts tiny like eyelash
lonely cat nap whisper lonely cat nap whisper

and i walk around i whisper in her scalp
i whisper on the wind i whisper once again

    General CommentI'm pretty sure its cocaine, derived from Manuel Noriega a previous Panama general convicted of trafficking cocaine. Just like the rapper N.O.R.E's previous name noreaga

    General CommentI don't really understand this song.. But the overall sound and the lyrics are wicked :) especially all the lalalalala parts.

    General Commenti read in an interview/review that this is supposed to be a very perverted sort of version of "come together".

    i'm not sure if they meant to do it, but take a look at it with that melody in mind. extremely interesting.

    General CommentYeah, it's referencing coke. Notice the sniffing sound in the background the first time he says it (seriously).

    General Commentgo see man man live... totally worth it.

    i like the noriega story... makes sense. also what else would 'strung out in brooklyn like it's 1983' mean?

    seems like someone fell in love with their female coke dealer. just a guess.

    btw, i love come together... but it doesn't remind me of this song a bit.
