Laurie Anderson Speechless Lyrics
It was august. summer of ’82. you had that rusty old car and me I had nothing better to do you picked me up. we hit the road. baby me and you. we shot out of town drivin’ fast and hard leaving o
Easy skid marks in people’s back yards. we were goin’ nowhere. just drivin’ around. we were goin’ in circles. and me I was just hanging on. like in that annie dillard book where she sees that ea
Ith the skull of a weasel hanging from it’s neck and here’s how it happened, listen. eagle bites the weasel. weasel bites back they fly up to nowhere. weasel keeps hangin’ on. together forever. w
E goin’ nowhere. just drivin’ around. you did all the talking and me I didnt’ make a sound if I open my mouth now I’ll fall to the ground if I open my mouth there’s so much I’d say like I can ne
E honest. like I’m in it for the thrill. like I never loved anyone. and I never will. eagle bites the weasel. weasel bites back. they fly up to nowhere. wesel keeps hanging on. together forever.
Member that old coat. my gran
Dma used to wear made of weasels biting each other’s tails a vicious circle and endless ride on the back of an old woman. eagle bites the weasel. weasel bites back. they fly up to nowhere. wesel
S hanging on. together forever. and me? I’m goin’ in circles. I’m circling aruond. and if I open my mouth now I’ll fall to the ground.
