I never locked the door
I never stood to gain
You coulda founded a state
Between the love and hate
You coulda landed a plane

And if you need a taste
You gotta grow your own
To do something right
Keep it up at night
And unplug the phone

And you can pile it on
And I will tunnel through

You can borrow my vibe
And make a killing too
Never ask me why
But I can answer you
Here’s a little clue

I keep a little book
Where I describe the ghosts
With their size and shape
From shark to ape
Now I propose a toast:

On the second floor
We write it down in code
You gotta punch the clock
You gotta polish the rock
So it doesn’t erode

And I can pile it on
And you will tunnel through

You can borrow my vibe
And make a killing too
Never ask me why
Don’t pervert the lie
With a little truth
You gotta testify
You can borrow my vibe
And make a killing too
Never ask me why
But I can answer you
Here’s a little clue

    General Commentthis song means so many things. clearly, david bazan borrowed his vibe and made a killing with it. when he says you can pile it on, he means shit. growing your own and polishing the rock are all about drugs, obviously. and he references gay sex too when he sings about keeping it up at night. i think this song is so deep. for the full story listen to this song and fewer moving parts back to back. bazan answers with i still run the show, don't you forget it.
