Luca

Album: The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me (2006)
  • When I disappear do you fear for the sister I took?
    When I disappear it is clear I am up to no good
    I am drearily bloodletting this bed wetting cosmonaut
    Son, the last thing you'll realize you need is what you've already got

    So touch me or don't
    Just let me know
    Where you've been

    Please drop me a line with a hook and some raw bleeding bait
    For I am uncaught and still swimming alone in the lake
    Shimmering under a moon made in anger and haste
    Shimmering like a penny out of reach in the subway grate
    (You never listen to anything)

    So touch me or don't
    Just let me know
    Where you've been

    Or we could leave it alone
    I'm sure there's someone who knows
    Where you've been

    You'll never work well with our group, not with the faults we've found
    So we've fixed you with cement galoshes, and no one can save you now
    Unless you have friends among fish, there'll still be no air to breathe
    You can drink up the entire ocean
    We'll still find someone to be everything we know that you'll never be

    So touch me or don't
    Just let me know
    Where you've been

    Or we could leave it alone
    I'm sure there's someone who knows
    Where you've been Writer/s: Jesse Lacey

  • Jeff from Geneva, OhThe title of this song comes from Luca Brasi, of the Godfather novel and film. Luca Brasi is Don Vito Corleone's personal enforcer.
