Harborcoat Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
Metal shivs on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads "REACT"
Verse 2

Reddened their necks collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown
Verse 3
Please find my harborcoat can't go outside without it
Find my harborcoat, can't go outside without it
Verse 4
They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
Metal shivs on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads "REACT", R-E-A-C-T
Verse 5
They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown
Verse 6
She said
