Mitski - The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We Lyrics






Bug Like an Angel

There's a bug like an angel
Stuck to the bottom
Of my glass, with a little bit left
As I got older
I learned I'm a drinker
Sometimes a drink feels like family
Family

Hey, what's the matter?
Lookin' like your sticker
Is stuck on a floor somewhere
Did you go and make promises you can't keep?
Well, when you break them
They break you right back
Amateur mistake
You can take it from me
They break you right back
Break you right back

Ooh, ooh

When I'm bent over
Wishin' it was over
Makin' all variety of vows I'll never keep
I try to remember
The wrath of the Devil
Was also given him by God

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh, ooh

Buffalo Replaced

Mosquitoes can enjoy me, I can't go inside
I'm suckin' up as much of the full moon, so bright
Fireflies zoomin' through the yard like highway cars
Someone out here burnin' something, kids feelin' alive

Freight train stampeding through my backyard
It'll run across the plains like the new buffalo replaced

I have a hope and though she's blind with no name
She shits where she's supposed to, feeds herself while I'm away
Sometimes I think it would be easier without her
But I know nothing can hurt me when I see her sleepin' face

Freight train horn howlin' out, mad and wild
Headin' somewhere far away like the new buffalo replaced

Heaven

All of our love
Filling all of our room
Your low warm voice
Curses as you find the string to strike within me
That rings out a note heard in heaven
Heaven, heaven

Now I bend like a willow
Thinkin' of you
Like a murmuring brook
Curving about you
As I sip on the rest of the coffee you left
A kiss left of you
Heaven, heaven, heaven

Hear the storm dances outside
Something set free
Is runnin' through the night
And the dark awaits us all around the corner
But here in our place
We have for the day
Can we stay a while and listen for
Heaven? Heaven

I Dont Like My Mind

I don't like my mind
I don't like being left alone in a room
With all its opinions about the things that I've done
So, yeah, I blast music loud
And I work myself to the bone
And on an inconvenient Christmas, I eat a cake

A whole cake, all for me, ooh, oh

And then I get sick and throw up
And there's another memory that gets stuck
Inside the walls of my skull, waiting for its turn to talk
And it may be a few years
But you can bet it's there, waiting still
For me to be left alone in a room with the things that I've done

A whole cake, so please don't take
Take this job from me
A whole cake, so please don't take
Take my job from me

The Deal

There's a deal you can make on a midnight walk alone
Look around, listen close, hear it fall from above
It will ask what you'd give and what you'd take for it in return
I once went on such a walk and I found that I'd said

I want someone to take this soul
I can't bear to keep it
I'd give it just to give
And all I will take are the consequences
Will somebody take this soul?

Then, of course, nothing replied, nothing speaks to you in the night
And I walked my way home, there was no one in sight
Save a bird perched upon a streetlight, watchin' me
So, I stopped and let it watch 'til I found that it said

Now I'm taken, the night has me
You won't hear me singin'
You're a cage without me
Your pain is eased but you'll never be free, for
Now I'm taken, the night has me

There's a deal that I made
There's a deal that I made
There's a deal that I made
There's a deal

When Memories Snow

When memories snow
And cover up the driveway
I shovel all those memories
Clear the path to drive to the store
And when memories melt
I hear them in the drainpipe
Drippin' through the downspout
As I lie awake in the dark

And if I break
Could I go on break?
Be back in my room
Writin' speeches in my head
Listenin' to the thousand hands
That clap for me in the dark

My Love Mine All Mine

Moon, a hole of light
Through the big top tent up high
Here before and after me
Shinin' down on me
Moon, tell me if I could
Send up my heart to you?
So, when I die, which I must do
Could it shine down here with you?

'Cause my love is mine, all mine
I love, my, my, mine
Nothing in the world belongs to me
But my love, mine, all mine, all mine

My baby, here on earth
Showed me what my heart was worth
So, when it comes to be my turn
Could you shine it down here for her?

'Cause my love is mine, all mine
I love, my, my, mine
Nothing in the world belongs to me
But my love, mine, all mine
Nothing in the world is mine for free
But my love, mine, all mine, all mine

The Frost

The frost, it looks like dust
Settled on the world
After everyone's long been gone
But me, I was hiding, or forgotten
The only one left
Now the world is mine alone
With no one, no one to share the memory
Of frost out the window this morning
After you're gone
And the house is mine alone

You're my best friend
Now I've no one to tell
How I lost my best friend
The frost, it looks
Like we've been left in the attic
But you're not here to see
It's just witness-less me

Star

Remember when we met
We acted like two fools
We were so glad
So glad to have found it

That love is like a star, it's gone
We just see it shining
It's traveled very far, I'll
Keep a leftover light burning
So you can keep looking up
Isn't that worth holding on?

You know I'd always been alone
'Til you taught me
To live for somebody

That love is like a star
It's gone, we just see it shining
'Cause it's traveled very far, I'll
Keep a leftover light burning
So you can keep looking up
I am yours

No matter that love's gone
We just see it shining
We've traveled very far, I'll
Keep a leftover light burning
So you can keep looking up
Isn't that worth holding on?

Im Your Man

You're an angel, I'm a dog
Or you're a dog and I'm your man
You believe me like a God
I destroy you like I am

I'm sorry I'm the one you love
No one will ever love me like you again
So when you leave me, I should die
I deserve it, don't I?

I can feel it getting near
Like flashlights coming down the way
One day you'll figure me out
I'll meet judgement by the hounds

People always gave me love
Others were never to blame after all
You believe me like a God
I betray you like a man

I Love Me After You

Brushin' my hair naked
Spritz my face with toner
Splash water on my neck
Laughin' in the mirror
Cool water in a glass
Drink it down
How I love me after you
King of all the land

Stride through the house naked
Don't even care that the
Curtains are open
Let the darkness see me
Streets are mine, the night is mine
All my own
How I love me after you
King of all the land
I'm king of all the land
