Once when my folks were gone
I saw a lot of liquor
I saw my tomcat
Famose
I saw my tomcat
What?
Tomcat
What?
My tomcat
Tomcat

I saw a bowl of milk
And I said
"Hey"
What?
I got news for you
That's weird
I got news for you
I got news

10, 5, 0 meters
I think it's, um . . .
I like the beat a lot
And I like the pool
And I can dance around the room
And I

Tomcat
Hello, tomcat
News for you
What, tomcat?
News for you
What, tomcat?
As you're listening to heart sounds
And murmurs
Instead of using words to
Describe them
It's somewhat like eating an apple
And trying to describe how it tastes

What
Tomcat
So what?
The LSD
What
I'm unsure
I got news for you
Some kind of LSD
Sure enough, I'll come
Tomcat
And I'm sure
The rumors
I got news for you
Hey, tomcat
And I'm sure the rumors
What, tomcat?
And I'm sure the box I
And I'm sure the box
Some kind of L word
One of the LS words
What the LS?
The L word
The LSD pill and the cat
What is going on, motherfucker?
No, no
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
There's salt
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
You're so flustered
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
You're so flustered
I excel at stone
When given the exposed
I am Brian

    General CommentYeah I was very bored the other day and lately I've been trying to figure out lyrics to any songs that there are no lyrics to ever since I found out the lyrics to "Dustin Hoffman Does Not Resist Temptation to Eat the Bathtub" by Of Montreal (my favorite band). Yeah I always thought I was horrible at deciphering lyrics until then but finding out the lyrics to this song was really really difficult. I got the people over at the official DCFC lyrics to proofread for me like I did with "Dustin Hoffman..." so they're better than they would be if I just went straight to submitting them. This song doesn't annoy me I like it a lot.

    General CommentThis song scared the crap out of me the first time I heard it. I love DCFC, but this song really does not make any sense, and it's quite creepy.

    General CommentI don't think this song is creepy
    I think it's just kinda funky and trippy and i always find myself like bopping my head to it

    General CommentI hate this song. I usually never hate songs, but this one is one I hate. Why did Death Cab write this? It is a piece of crap. I absolutely love DCfC with every vein in my body, but this song is annoying and creepy and awful.

    General Commentthe first time i heard this song i had a death cab playlist on my computer that i set before i went to bed
    and around three am i woke up to
    It's somewhat like eating an apple
    And trying to describe how it tastes

    What
    Tomcat
    So what?
    The LSD
    What

    and i got so scared i had to cover my ears til it was over
    because obviously this song is way different than death cab so i did NOT know what was going on with my computer

    but then someone showed me frontier psychiatrist by the avalanches and it made me think of this song

    so i looked back on it and realized yes, it must be about a LSD trip
    and i didn't find it scary anymore.. actually now i find it rather interesting

    General CommentAnnoying? I think it is one of the finest Death Cab songs; it's great that a band can be so versatile, and come on it's not like they made an entire album like this. I love that this one song stands out on YCPTSWC.
