deuteronomy 2:10 lyrics – mountain goats

the sun above me and a concrete floor below
scratch at the chain links, maybe bare my teeth for show
fed twice a day, i don’t go hungry anymore
feel in my bones just what the future has in store

i pace in circles
so the camera will see
look hard at my stripes
there’ll be no more after me

laze by the sh*r*line while the sailors disembark
scratch out a place to sit and rest down in the dark
smell something burning downwind just a little ways
they set up camp and sing and sweat and work for days

i have no fear of anyone
i’m dumb and wild and free
i am a flightless bird
and there’ll be no more after me

in costa rica, in a burrow underground
climb to the surface, blink my eyes and look around
i’m all alone here as i try my tiny song
claim my place beneath the sky, but i won’t be here for long

i sang all night
the moon shone on me through the trees
no brothers left
and there’ll be no more after me
