I'm lookin' out from eyes that roll back white
And talk in tongues of blood and bite
And the only song I know
Is the callin' of a crow
And teeth are the only bones that show
Sometimes you've just got to climb
Big trees in wintertime
And when you're up there in the cold
hopin' that your knot will hold
And swingin' in the snow
That's when you know
That teeth are the only bones that show
I wondered, "What's it like to be a man?"
Bent nails
In a rusty can
And the sound those nails make
When you give that can a shake
Will make you wish that it wasn't so
But teeth are the only bones that show
Sometimes you've just got to wait
Cold years of hooks and bait
Unkind miles from heaven's big hello
And teeth are the only bones that show
And the rabbit comes out of the hole
And the rabbit goes around the tree
And the rabbit goes back in the hole
Back in the hole again
Back in the hole
Back in the hole
Back in the hole again
