"With Teeth" – 2:25

Originally from Lysol, 1992 on Boner Records.

Lyrics

You've got the part that's living now

It's a tiny bit nasty

But it's a part now just the same


Have you the time to make it right

Lord knows I'm gonna let it fly


I know it's not very evil

But you've just got to learn to let it go


Sometimes when the heart beats wide

You can take it on the toe


Like siz the well known one-a

Like siz the well known one


(alternate interpretation)

You got the part that's living now

It's a tiny bit nasty

But it's a part that necessary

And you've time to make it right

Lord knows, I'm not the living light

I know it's not for me, your heart

But you've just got to learn to make it real

Sometimes the heart keeps watch

Take on the doves


Likes is the world on water

Likes is a well known war

Likes is the world on water

Likes is a well known war

Meaning

Osborne, who is usually evasive about his lyrical content, admits the optimistic feel of "With Teeth" was no accident. "The lyrics are meant to convey a sense that you're doing the best job that you can, regardless of whatever it may be," he says. "Everything's fine because you did the best that you could do. That's all anybody can ask."
