Cass McCombs Lyrics

"Lionkiller" lyrics

I was born in a hospital
that was very big and white
The hands of a male doctor
pulled me into the light
My grandmother cut
the umbilical cord
and I took my first breath
in a maternity ward

They gave me food and shelter.
they gave me clothes and things
I was allowed to go to school
and I was encouraged to sing
I was healthy,
I was a privileged soul
and I am lucky today,
and thankful on the whole

I am called Scorpio,
if they got the date right
I cannot transcend this caste
even if I tried

I hope to kill
a great lion someday
and I will because with
work ethic I was raised

Fire, Water, Earth, Wind have gone
to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John

Elements are assigned.
Stars given names.
Baseball on T.V., pictures in frames
I am still hunting
for the hide of such sheen
My hair is still curly
and my eyes are still green

Stick a needle in my eye
I'm middle class 'til the day I die
