歌詞
It seems like you’ve already decided
I don’t think that there’s much to discuss

Well, we’ve been in between places
We’ve mostly been staying at some house in the mountains
Her friend isn’t using
She said he used to be a pretty huge producer
He doesn’t seem that huge anymore

We found a torch in the drawer
We found the foil on the floor
There was blood on the buttons when I picked up the phone

Oh, what happens is you claw out your sensors
Then you don’t know what you should feel
And your body’s just another container
And your blood is just part of the deal

There’s scratching at the walls in the wheelhouse
And it sounded like it’s trapped under ice
Remember when we thought this was better?
There was a snake in the shower last night

We dug in pretty deep and we were almost asleep
When someone put a brick through the window
Say what you will, man, I don’t think that there’s much to discuss

Battle burns, cinnamon
Colfax and Sheridan
Covered up in ticker tape
Newfangled American man

The doctors hooked you up to computers to figure out where we went wrong
The technician put on Cat and the Cobra
The nurses laid down on the lawn

What happens is you pull out your sensors
Then you can't tell the key from the kite
You fool around with thunder and lightning
There was a snake in the shower last night

Before we left the city we went out to some party
Before we hit the party we stopped off for supplies
There was a kid on the corner with a coat of many colors
He said, "You want to be tamed? You want to get wild?"
Pulled a stem from his sleeve, said, "Try one of these
You’ll dream like a king, little child"
Then he smiled

Someone made a joke that seemed hopeful
About things that go bump in the night
At first it kind of picked up the party
And then it kind of ruins your life

What happens when you snuff out the candle?
It’s mostly just an absence of light
Death is a complete loss of power
There was a snake in the shower last night
