amputations lyrics – death cab for cutie

glenn turner sample: “and if we seem nutty to you and if we seem like an odd ball to you, just remember one thing. the mighty oak tree was once a nut just like me.”
and if it was just how you wanted
you’d be glued to his bones and his brainstem
and changing your image and att*tudes
won’t bring him back into your bedroom
amputating as he’s waiting
amputating
he’s unresponsive ‘cause you’re irresponsible
little swinger, your bottle is thinking too much
‘cause you’re aiming to please way off target
and i’ll tell you what you must already know
of amputating that too slow
amputating as he’s waiting
amputating
he’s unresponsive ‘cause you’re irresponsible
amputating as he’s waiting
amputating
he’s unresponsive ‘cause you’re irresponsible
amputating as he’s waiting
amputating
he’s unresponsive ‘cause you’re irresponsible
glenn turner sample: “and i pray to god that one day, he will grant me the power to reach out and hold my hand over your head and give you instant belief, ’cause you don’t have instant belief. you’ve been hooked, you’ve been crooked, you’ve been lied to so many times, that you’re suspicious-minded. and when the right thing comes along, you don’t believe in it. when i’m coming in knocking on the front door, you’re out the back door looking for four leaf clovers. and when you find it, you think somebody planted it there to fool you. ‘whats the angle?’ you look for an excuse. in this modern day and age we have instant coffee and instant tea–instant disbelief. thats the reason we will never become anything–it is because we will never believe in ourselves. we will always listen to the m*ss majority. if everybody’s making fun of you and criticizing you, then you know you’re on the right track. cause most people ain’t got it.”
