I Ain’t Got It by Robin Wyatt Dunn

I ain’t got it
I ain’t got no part of it
I ain’t got the pale or the moonlight
not the fog
not the right outfit

I ain’t got the bow
or the beak
I ain’t got the meat

I ain’t got the liquid eyes
or the daredevil antics

I ain’t got the bad owl
or the bad ranking system for your neighbors

I ain’t got my love.

I ain’t got the handbrake

(we sailing five hundred strong)

I ain’t got the nail
and I ain’t got the axe

I got these motor tracks for our deliverance

for our shit show

on the thumb drum dial
in the permanent midnight
