Album: Arc (2013)
Charted: 48
  • Four walls and a cauldron of Kalashnikoving
    And our home is a trigger that I'm always pulling
    At the border, at the, at the border
    I'm at the border, at the, at the border
    The short spears and the weak eternal monologuing
    And our war is the crucible of all your longing
    At the border, at the, at the border
    I'm at the border, at the, at the border

    I was there when the clamor got real
    I was there when your brow smashed the wall
    It's like a riot with only two perps
    The more I'm here I'm making it worse
    But does it feel like you're already dead? (Yes)
    And do you feel like your brain stopped delivering?
    Yeah, break my finger shoot out my black eyes
    What does it matter if everyone dies?

    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone
    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone
    Hi-O Silver away

    So fast hence take an arrow from your quiver or we're
    Past tens, what's a trilobite to anyone?
    I'm outta my depth, outta, outta my depth
    I'm outta my depth, outta, outta my depth
    My head reels and I'm crawling down the corridor
    I can't see but I'm heaving like a holocaust

    I'm reaching my phone, reaching, reaching my phone
    I'm reaching my phone, reaching, reaching my phone
    You wasn't there when I orphaned that boy (No)
    Your body was and the white of your rollin' eye
    I saw some terrible things on that night
    I done a lot of bad things with my life
    I put my fingers in there
    Hey, and I breeze past security
    Nobody checking on all of my deeds
    I need a checker for all of my deeds

    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone
    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone

    And we be trapped in the amber last joy
    And I'm looking at a holy ghost
    But there's no silver bullet for a memory
    I field dress every moment but you're telling me that Torito say
    I've lost my way

    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone
    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone

    Mmm, and I'm lost and I'm drained
    Enough genuflecting in a penitent way

    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone
    (Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
    Ayah, I am a, I am alone
