You found a sweater on the ocean floor
They're gonna find it if you didn't close the door.
You and the smart ones sit outside of their sight
In a house on a street they wouldn't park on at night.

Dad was a risk taker.
His was a shoe maker.
You greatest hits 2006, Little listmaker.
Heard codes in the melody, You heeded the call.
You were born with ten fingers and you're gonna use them all.

Interesting colors I discovered myself
If your art life is gritty,
You'll be toasting my health
If an interest in culture,
Should be lining the walls.
When your birth right is interest
You could just accrue it all.

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
It's a line that is always running.
Me and my cousins, You and your cousins,
I can feel it coming

You could turn your back on the bitter world [4x]

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
It's a line that is always running.
Me and my cousins, You and your cousins,
I can feel it coming

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
It's a line that is always running.
Me and my cousins, You and your cousins,
I can feel it coming
