Phantom Limb Lyrics

Phantom Limb (幻肢) - The Shins

Foals in winter coats

 

White girls of the north

 

File past one five and one

 

They are the fabled lambs

Of Sunday ham

The EHS norm

 

And they could float above the grass

 

In circles if they tried

 

A latent power I know they hide

 

To keep some hope alive

 

That a girl like I'm

Could ever try

 

Could ever try

 

So we just skirt the hallway sides

A phantom and a fly

 

Follow the lines and wonder why

 

There's no connection

A week of rolling eyes

 

And cheap shots from the trite

 

And we're off to Nemarca's porch again

 

Another afternoon

With the goat-head tunes

And pilfered booze

 

We wander through her mama's house

 

The milk from a window lights

Family portrait circa '95

 

This is that foreign land

 

With the sprayed-on tans

And it all feels fine

 

Be it silk or slime

 

So when they tap our Monday heads

Two zombies walk in our stead

 

This town seems hardly worth the time

 

And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme

Too far along in our climb

Stepping over what now towers to the sky

 

With no connection

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

So when they tap our Sunday heads

Two zombies walk in our stead

 

This town seems hardly worth our time

 

And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme

Too far along in our crime

Stepping over what now towers to the sky

 

With no connection

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo

 

Oooh waooooooo waooooooo
