Pavement – Folk Jam lyrics

If you enjoy the company
Of a descending family tree
Well tuck in your thoughts,
It's there or it's not.
The feeling is mutual

Well pardon my birth I just slipped out
Origins I can't brag about.
Spawn of a bank inquisitor
And theives I wish.

Watch out the snitch also
Involves himself in blackmail.
One would think the interests conflict.
Yeeeeah, hooo

(some meaningless gibberish about docks?)
Changing the order...

The air is so taut/tight I feel so thin
Hot as the come to closing in
Hot as the gun I'm closing in
And reeap the benefits

Beware the head of state
Says that see believes in leprechauns
Irish folk tales scare the shit out of me, yeah

Be as it may I'm happy to say I'm around
Miles accrued and passengers add up
The message on a mirror says "stick with me"
Cause no one's there
To read your reflection when I'm gone
Get it on
