Mountain Goats – Until I Am Whole lyrics

Sunset on Snohomish
Burn the tree line down
Hold my hopes underwater
Stand there and watch them drown

Fishing out their bodies
From the bathroom sink
Leave them in a bucket
Til they start to stink

I think I'll stay here til I feel whole again
I don't know when

Trout swim past the fishing lines
Sky gets dark and close
Cars start up and make
Their nightly exodus

On a picnic bench alone
Watch the sky go dark
Dig my nails into my hands
Hope it leaves a mark

I think I'll stay here til I feel whole again
I don't know when
