I got evicted from my house
all my shit's on the lawn
everything I've owned since I was a baby
turning grey in the sun.
I found a picture of my mother
when she was just 17
looking wild and glamorous at a party
laughing about to scream.
So I flew to Australia
on a flamingo's back,
the Pacific Ocean was dreaming of angels
with the wings of a bat.
It was six in the morning
the sun was just coming up,
everybody getting out of the subways
going out to their jobs.

Happy new year Antoine
I'm fucked up bad but I'll be fine soon I'm sure
and we can run the streets and scream like jaguars,
because liars own the world.

I got evicted from this song,
oh my voice is deformed,
exotic islands and new species of animals
is all I'm writing for.
I found a picture of my brother
when he was just 17
jet-black hair on his first tour ever
totally hung over.
So I joined the marines
just to travel the world,
Afghanistan was dreaming of Miss America
McDonald's tits grotesque smirk.
But I still missed my hometown
so I had to desert,
everybody driving around in hummers
driving their parents speed boats.

Happy new year mamma
the static in my head could scar that girl
disfigure baby birds and maul the TV
because the liars own the world.

    General CommentMy guess is that this song is about lying and how people manipulate the truth to the point that you can't go out into the world without your guard up because of the way the people are. Everyone is fake and everyone is trying to lie to get to the top, no matter where he goes in the world.

    This is my favorite song by Jaguar Love.

    General CommentOn imeem Cody says this song is about a dream-state where everything is going on and nothing really correlates but everything is very real feeling.

    My OpinionIt sounds pretty straight forward to me. It sounds literal, like he's looking at his old belongings and thinking of all the memories.

    I could be wrong.
