Bums rush out the door
Mama didn’t want you anymore
A thornless rose in her side
Despite being bonded by blood lines
It wasn’t the right time
She said no more free load
This is the end of the freak show
Half shake and heart broke
Half slewed half snapped
A rat trap snapping back
Hand bone hand me down
Baloney sandwich lonely clowns
Smoke laugh toke craft
Porn blood piss grass
Piss miss heart hand
Tried to take a stand
Down dropped sales low
The joys and woes
The curtains slowly close
Burning Down the House
Smoke em out smoke em out
the dead girl shouts
I was on the verge like so many times
Got children and wives waving forks and knives
The new sound circles round
Slaughter raging death dice
Fall hot house burn down
Foes upon foes, west to east it goes
The dead girl says let’s just be friends
In the glorious tone of marrow and bone
These days of ore
The chance we meet once more
The smoke lightning crack asunder
The boom of guns the peel of thunder

New music

means new poetry

from duo CocoRosie

with some help

from ANOHNI.

As they continue working

on their new album,

they felt it necessary

to release this single.

In their own words:

“Smoke ‘em Out”

welcomes the new character

who will be occupying

the White House

with a mob of women

and children armed

with forks and knives.

In the wake of this un-natural

disaster, we feel a call

to rise, shout,

and burn the house down.
