Owen Pallett

"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

[Verse 4]
Only share my research
With sick lab rats like me
Trapped behind the beakers
And the Erlenmeyer flasks
Cut off from the world, I may not ever get free
But I may one day

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

[Bridge]
So many suffering from the same affliction
Coming up on the breakthrough
The clock's ticking

[Verse 5]
Dig down amongst my calculations
Check my map
Up there on the surface
Everybody's getting ready for the bloodbath
Stem the tide, stem the tide
They're calling down for reinforcements

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