“Crooked Teeth” by Death Cab for Cutie

“‘Cause you can’t find nothing at all, if there was nothing there all along.”

I knew I’d made a horrible call
And now the state line felt like the Berlin wall
And there was no doubt about which side I was on

‘Cause you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
No you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.

I braved treacherous streets,
And kids strung out on homemade speed.
And we shared a bed in which I could not sleep,
At all

‘Cause at night the sun in retreat,
Made the skyline look like crooked teeth,
In the mouth of a man who was devouring
us both.

But they’re closing the bar and they want us to leave.

And you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
No you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.

And you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
No, you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.

No, you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
There were churches, theme parks and malls,
But there was nothing there all along.

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
