The Mountain Goats – Oceanographer's Choice lyrics
Well, guy in a skeleton costume
Comes up to the guy in the superman suit
Runs through him with a broadsword
I put the television off
Bring all the bright lights up
Turn the radio up loud
I don't know why I'm so persuaded
That if I think things through
Long enough and hard enough
I'll somehow get to you
But then you came in
And we locked eyes
You kicked the ashtray over
As we came toward each other
Stubbed my cigarette out against the west wall
Quickly lit another
Look at that
Would you look at that
We're throwing off sparks
What will I do when I don't have you
To hold on to in the dark

Yes, everybody's gonna need a witness
Everybody's gonna need a little backup
In case the scene gets nasty
You throw the attick window open
And I throw myself all around you
And night comes to Tallahassee
I don't know why it's gotten harder
To keep myself away
I thought I'd finally beat the feeling back
It all came back today
And then we fell down
And we locked arms
We knocked the dresser over
As we rolled across the floor
I don't mean when I tell you
That I don't love you anymore
Look at that, would you look at that
The way ceiling starts to swerve
What will I do when I don't have you
When I finally get what I deserve
