Lazaretto Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 [translation: I work hard]
Como en madera y yeso [translation: like the wood and gesso)
Como en madera y yeso

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 threw me down in the Lazaretto
Bored rotten, bored rotten
Making models of people I used to know
Out of coffee and cotton
And all my illegitimate kids'll be gotten
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 don't 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
