When I look into the mirror
I see all of my old friends
They are the tales
of rockets going by
in the window just behind me
Then I see the flash
of the gunshots
from the black gun I imagined
when I think of how they told me
that he'd bought one

Oh lover, fuck me in the afternoon
fuck me in the evening
either way at least it will be now
in which we're living

Overseas,
underground
I thought that I would be
stronger

I didn't know
that my old life
would become
A swarm
of swallows
thinning out against
the aurora borealis
That's right I said
a swarm
of swallows
thinning out against
the aurora borealis

Oh won't you throw me from the palace
should I ever reach for my brother's crown
For he is he an honest king
And I am only everything else

I'll stay under the table
Cause we both know
That I am willing and I am able
And we both know
There is no Cain, there is no Abel

And when you hang around
when you hang around
and then you just hang around
You belong where you are found
When you hear your name
Coming straight from the horse's mouth
and you don't run either away or towards the sound
you belong where you are found
and that book
under your arm
has a title like a hot coal
you fool
you fool
say
when you hang around
and then you just hang around
and then you just
you just
you just
you just
hang around
you belong where you are found
you belong where you are found
you belong where you are found

Overseas,
underground
I thought that I would be
stronger
