Album: Lazaretto (2014)
  • My veins are blue and connected
    And every single bone in my brain is electric
    But I dig ditches like the best of 'em
    Yo trabajo duro
    Como en madera y eso
    Como en madera y eso

    And even God herself has fewer plans than me
    But she never helps me out with my scams for free, though
    She grabs a stick and then she pokes it at me
    When I say nothing, I say everything
    Yeah when I say nothing, I say everything

    They put me down in a lazaretto
    Born rotten, bored rotten
    Making models of people I used to know
    Out of coffee and cotton
    And all of my illegitimate kids have begotten
    Thrown down to the wolves, made feral for nothing
    Quarantined on the Isle Of Man
    And I'm trying to escape any way that I can, oh
    Any way that I can, oh

    I have no time left
    Time is lost
    No time at all, throw it in a garbage can
    And I shake God's hand
    I jump up and let her know when I can
    This is how I'm gonna do it

    They wanna blow down the prison
    They're lighting fires with the cash of the masses
    And like the dough I don't fall down
    I'm so Detroit I make it rise from the ashes Writer/s: JACK WHITE
