The Mountain Goats

"An Antidote for Strychnine"

[Verse 1]
Dig around in the garbage
Save up some halibut bones in a jar
Scrape a winter's worth of salt deposits
From the rusty frame of my car
Ask the experts, maybe they'll know

[Verse 2]
Call up my teacher in Cambridge
See what he remembers
Throw white phosphorus in the fireplace
Look for clues in the embers
Call the hotline, give them a phony last name

[Chorus]
Try to find
An antidote for strychnine
Tryin' to find
An antidote for strychnine

[Verse 3]
Time's running short
Always seems to run shorter
Have some supplies sent
From up just past the northern border

Keep a line out to the people who take the long view
