The Mars Volta – Drunkship Of Lanterns lyrics

[Verse 1]
You've got the lot to burn
A shelve of pig-smothered cries
Is there a spirit that spits
Upon the exit of signs?

[Bridge 1]
Is anybody there? (spined in a row!)
These steps keep on growing long (spined as an arrow!)
Bayonet trials
Rust propellers await

[Chorus]
Nobody is heard
Rowing sheep smile for the dead
Nobody is heard....

[Verse 2]
An antiquated home
Afloat with engines on mute
Sui generis ship spined around the yard

[Bridge 2]
Is anybody there? (spined in a row!)
These craft only multiply (spined as an arrow!)
At the nape of ruins rust propellers await!
Noooo!

[Chorus 2]
Nobody is heard
Compass wilting in the wind (kcab nrnut t'nod, kcab nrut t'nod)
Nobody is heard
Rowing sheep smile for the dead
Trans-oceanic depths in this earth
In this cenotaph

[Bridge 3]
Lash of a thousand eye-brows clicking
Counting the toll, counting the toll

[Verse 1]

[Bridge 2]

[Chorus 2]

[Outro: Cedric]
Carpal jets hit the ground!
Carpal jets hit the ground!
Carpal jets hit the ground!

Lash of a thousand eyebrows clicking
Counting the toll, counting the toll
Lash of a thousand eyebrows clicking
Counting the toll, counting the toll
