Flightless Bird, American Mouth

I was a quick, wet boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your street light eyes
Wide on my plastic toys

Then when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long, baby hair
stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping
Or lost you, American mouth
Big pill looming

Now I'm a fat house cat
Cursing my sore, blunt tongue
Watching the warm, poisoned rats
Curl through the wide fence cracks

Pissing on magazine photos
Those fishing lures
Thrown in the cold and clean
Blood of Christ mountain stream

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, grounded, bleeding
Or lost you, American mouth
Big pill stuck going down

Pássaro Sem Vôo, Boca Americana

Eu era um garoto ligeiro, molhado
Mergulhando fundo demais por trocados
Todos os olhos iluminados na rua
Arregalados nos meus brinquedos de plástico

E quando a polícia fechou a feira
Eu cortei meus longos, infantis cabelos
Roubei para mim um mapa surrado
E chamei por você em todos os lugares

Eu te encontrei?
Pássaro que não voa, ciumento, chorando
Ou eu te perdi, boca americana
Grande pílula iminente

Agora eu sou um gordo gato doméstico
Amaldiçoando minha dolorida, plana língua
Observando os quentes ratos venenosos
Tentando passar pelos buracos da enorme cerca

Mijando em fotos de revistas
Aqueles iscas de peixes
Jogadas no frio e limpo
Sangue de Cristo correndo pela montanha

Eu te encontrei?
Pássaro que não voa, preso ao chão, sangrando
Ou te perdi, boca americana?
Grande pílula, presa, descendo
