Jack White Lazaretto

My veins are blue and connected

And every single bone in my brain is electric

But I dig ditches like the best of ’em

Yo trabajo duro

Como en madera y yeso

Como en madera y yeso

And even God herself

Has fewer plans than me

But she never helps me out with my scams for free,

Though she grabs a stick and then she points it at me

When I say nothing, I say everything

Yeah when I say nothing, I say everything

They threw me down in the lazaretto

Born rottin’, bored rotten

Makin’ models of people I used to know

Out of coffee and cotton

And all my illegitimate kids have begotten

Thrown down to the wolves, made feral for nothin’

Quarantine on the Isle of Man and I’m trying to escape any way that I can, oh

Any way that I can, oh

I have no time left

Time is lost, no time at all, throw it in a garbage can

And I shake God’s hand

I jump up and let her know when I can

This is how I’m gonna do it

They wanna burn down the prison

They’re lighting fires with the cash of the masses

And like the dough I don’t fall down

I’m so Detroit, I make it rise from the ashes
