Shins – Eating Steyes From Elephants' Eyes lyrics

They want trash
They want you batting a lash
They'll eat styes from elephant's eyes
They're in touch with their inner crutch
They won't stab but they grab
And that's just like the other
They're getting news
And we're drowning in booze
We take lies from elephant's eyes
They're in bed with the crowd eating lead
It won't stop if you shop with the lovers of bloodshed
I went to school
I saw slides of where I'm meant to be
We read time like a kid eating limes
We're in town when bees are let out
We get laughs through an osmotic patch
We're attached to the past 'cause the future's a bleak one
I went to school
I saw slides of where I'm meant to be
