about

why not use what you got to get the things you want if you even know what they are, and take sonic youth with you on your hejira

lyrics

take all your dirty daydreams and go and drown them in the lake and skies will open for you and you can have all you can take maybe we’re lying to you we’ll give you beads and blankets if that’s all you want you’ll get a piece of paper if that’s all you want you’re selling yourself cheap if that’s all you want two years of jordan almonds and midnight phone calls from the feds you’ll never see it coming they’ll get it on a fisheye lens but you’ll still look terrific we’ll put you on the guestlist if that’s all you want we’ll go and blame your victims if that’s all you want and if you’re feeling frightened we’ll put the serpents in the sheaths we have a high admission but you can pay with perfect teeth and when the day is done we’ll let you get a little sleep on sheets of gold and silk and you can get a moment’s peace we have a high admission but you can pay with perfect teeth
