Andrew Bird – Give It Away lyrics

Did you give it away?
Did you give it away for free?
Don't you give it away
Let's try to keep it in the family
I know you know desolation
Coming home with your pockets full of sand
I know it's no vacation, ohohoh
Now you found your tiny patch of land
...
In the nation under your command

Did you give it away? (Yeah I gave it away)
Did you give it away for free?
What would you have us pay?
I didn't know that your love was a commodity
What about appreciation? Ohohoh
That depends on your depth and density
What about inflation? Ohohoh
Charts and graphs don't mean a thing to me
In your nation
With it's worthless currency

(Wanna give it away, give it away for free)
(Won't you give it away, give it away to me)
(Won't you give it away, give it away for free)
(Won't you give it away, give it away to me)

Would you hide in the hay?
Would you hide in the hay with me?
If you hide in the hay
Where it's dark and you can scarcely breathe or see
A short asphyxiation
Where the foxes and field mice make their dens
Just by association
I swore I'd never take anyone there again
To this nation
A nation under your command
To this nation
A nation under your command
To this nation
A nation under your command
