Mountain Goats – Alpha Rat's Nest lyrics

All the lengthening hours of the refinery
Belching fire into the sky
We do our best vampire routines
As we suck the dying hours dry
The night is lovely as a rose
If I see sunlight hit you
I am sure that we'll both decompose

All the fitful sleep and the fire engines
That I dream of when I dream
Someday we'll both wake up for good
I will try hard not to scream
The evening wind will shake the blind
You're stirring from your slumber
We've got something hateful on our minds
Oh sing, sing, sing
For the dying of the day
Sing for the flames that will rip through here
And the smoke that will carry us away
Sing for the damage we've done
And the worse things that we'll do
Open your mouth up and sing for me now
And I will sing for you
