There's blood and feathers
On my dumb paws
You ain't nothing but a dead duck
I ain't nothing but a hound dog.

You seep in the windows and vents.
I lay in the grass and I lose your scent.
If God gave me grace, then why aren't I graceful?
My joints are frozen, cold, old, and idle.

If it's by air
I don't want to know
If we all don't take cover
Then we're all gonna fall back in love again

You work late and you fight off your boss
Your patient dies, take the night off

Now since they worked out
All the bugs
If you have enough money
You can buy love

You find out your reception seating
And I'll sing, sing, sing
These ten lords still leaping
And the mark on your breast from your baby teething
Give him my name if he is needing.

If it's by sea
I don't want to know
If we all don't take cover
Then we're all gonna fall back in love again
Bless your beautiful hide.
And curse your god when your friends die

If it's by air
I don't wanna know
If we all don't take cover
Then we're all gonna fall back in love again

You work late, you fight off your boss
Your patient dies, take the night off.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about an old love of his getting married, hence the "work out the reception seating". He is jealous of the person she is marrying, and perhaps feels that she is marrying him because he has a money, unlike Jesse who is a "poor musician". Perhaps the man is a doctor which would explain the medical references. She is pregnant with a child and he wishes that she'd name the child after him so that he still feels like he is part of her life. He also imagines that his thinking of her and vice versa will cause them to remember their love and cause them to "fall back in love again" but he knows that now it'd be disastrous to her marriage and her future so they need to "take cover".

    General CommentWith blood and feathers
    On my torn paws
    You ain't nothing but a dead duck
    I ain't nothing but a hound dog
    You seep in the windows and vents
    And I lay here in the grass and I lose your sent
    If god gave me grace than way aren't I graceful?
    My joints are frozen cold and old and idle

    If it's by air
    Then I don't wanna know
    If we all don't take cover we're all going to fall back in love again
    You work late to fight off your poison
    If the patient dies you take the night off

    They worked out all the bugs
    If we have enough money you can buy love
    You work out the perceptions in me
    I sing, sing, sing, these ten most deadly things
    The mark on your breast from your baby teething
    Give him my name if he is needing

    If it's by sea
    I don't wanna know
    If we all don't take cover we're all going to fall back in love again
    Bless you, your beautiful life
    And curse your god when your friends die

    If it's by air
    Well I don't wanna know
    If we all don't take cover we're all going to fall back in love again
    You work late and fight off your poison
    If the patient dies then you take the night off

    General CommentI submitted this like two or three days ago, I thought it got rejected, ha.
    I know I'm way off, I only have one speaker and it's a piece of crap. This song at times is extremely quiet and if I turn my speaker up, all it does is go staticy.
    Somebody else also posted the lyrics under the title "aloC-acoC", the title printed on the case to avoid being sued. Those lyrics are correct, and I'ma bout to change these ones to the correct version submitted by omgitsfinkel.
    Thanks for the help and for not being all "omg u dont know teh lyrics you f*ckin suck at life die" like people tend to do.

    General CommentNot to be nit-picky, but..

    And I lay here in the grass and I lose your SCENT
    If god gave me grace than WHY aren't I graceful?

    I think this song is the music from Untitled 03 with the meaning of Untitled 01.

    General CommentIt's a remade version of Untitled 03. It was on the Sowing Season single that came with the preorder of The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. It's not a demo, it's a b-side. You can get it by having a copy of the single (some stores sold them) or by downloading it.

    General CommentI thought so too. So I listened closer.

    Now I'm 99% sure he says "You work late, fight off your boss, and if the patient dies take the night off."
    I guess because a lot of bosses don't like people working overtime... I know the people where I work will rip you a new one if you do... but anyway, that's what it sounds like to me.
