The Dead Dog
by Portugal. The Man



Yeah these people have it made
They got all the money, everything
They know it all so they got nothing else to know
Forget it all when they fly back from mexico

Like the wolves that had it made
They got food for years, mountains for days
Up the mountain gotta find what the sheep had found
Back to the den they find that the cubs had drowned

So why would we try
If we can wait
Just have ourselves a time
Free like the mind
It always waits
For friends to come around
So they'll get high
And higher still
And slowly fall behind
The warmth it came
In waves of pain
We really had ourselves a time
Yeah we had ourselves a time

If you find me at the dead dog
Boy I gotta warn you
These people they
They didn't try
They didn't try
And they lie and they lie and they lie
They lie
They lie

Still born still taking shape
It took ten of them, ten years, ten times
What it takes
Forget it all just shove all the poor in there
The hungry men swallowed all we fit in there

So why would we try
If we can wait
Just have ourselves a time
Free like the mind
It always waits
For friends to come around
So they'll get high
And higher still
And slowly fall behind
The warmth it came
In waves of pain
We really had ourselves a time
Yeah we had ourselves a time

If you find me at the dead dog
Boy I gotta warn you
These people they,
They didn't try
They didn't try
And they lie and they lie and they lie
They lie
They lie
