Stephen Malkmus – Black Book lyrics

Offer your trust to a friend
Who is not what he says
And you know when you're dry, what you're thinkin
Trout in the brook, you're about to get hooked
To a greedy false un-catholic knave

The black book you took
Was permanent-ally diversified
Cousin why, cousin why, cousin why (2x)

I took the locomotive to kreutzberg
Passed through the scenery
And passengers got on that train too
And they really surprised me when they said:

" the black book you took
Was permanent-ally diversified
Cousin why, cousin why, cousin why" (2x)

I've got some friends
But I got some enemies too
And yes I got some people in between
People just like you

The black book you took
Was permanent-ally diversified
Cousin why, cousin why, cousin why
The black book you took
Was permanent-ally diversified (2x)
