"Everything You Can Think" as written by and Kathleen Brennan Tom Waits....
Everything you can think of is true
Before the ocean was blue
You were lost in a flood run red
With your blood's Nigerian skeleton crew

Everything you can think of is true
The dish ran away with the spoon
Dig deep in your heart for that little red glow
We're decomposing as we go

Everything you can think of is true
And fishes make wishes on you
We're fighting our way up dreamland's spine
With black flamingos, expensive wine

Everything you can think of is true
The baby's asleep in your shoe
Your teeth are buildings with yellow doors
Your eyes are fish on a creamy shore

    General CommentGreat example of his barking voice style. I love the haunting pirate 'arghs' at the end.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "red flamingos" not "black flamingos"

    Also this is the greatest song ever...
