In the Mouth of a Desert Lyrics

Artist: Pavement
Album: Slanted And Enchanted

can you treat it like an oil well
when it's underground, out of sight?
and if the sight is just a whore sign
can it make enough sense to me?

pretend the table is a trust knot
we'll put our labels down, favors down
i'll watch some yards of twine unravel
and you'll never get it back

it's what i want (it's what i want)
it's what i want (twine comes down)
it's what i want (it's what i want)
don't you know, i could make you try
make you try [3x]

i've been crowned the king of it, and it is all we have
so wait to hear my words and they're diamond sharp
i can open it up and it's up and down

it's what i want (it's what i want)
to see you beg like a little dog (ball of twine)
don't you know that it's what i want (it's what i want)
i'll see you beg and it makes you dry
makes you dry [3x]

i've been down, the king of it, it is all we have
i've been down and i could wait to hear the words
they're diamond sharp today
