Coconut Skins

This song is by Damien Rice and appears on the album 9 (2006).

You can hold her hand, and show her how you cry
Explain to her your weakness so she understands, and then roll over and die
You can brave decisions, before you crumble up inside
Spend your time asking everyone else's permission, then run away and hide

Or you can sit on chimneys, put some fire up your ass
No need to know what you're doing or waiting for, but if anyone should ask
Tell them I've been licking coconut skins and we've been hanging out
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins and relieve us our doubt

La la la la la la la...

Oh you can hold her eggs, but your basket has a hole
You can lie between her legs and go looking for, tell her you're searching for her soul
You can wait for ages, watch your compost turn to coal
Time is contagious, everybody's getting old

So you can sit on chimneys, put some fire up your ass
No need to know what you're doing or looking for, but if anyone should ask
Tell them I've been cooking coconut skins and we've been hanging out
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins and relieve us our doubt

La la la la la la la...
