“Bloodbuzz Ohio” Still Killing My iPod

The National’s song, Blood Buzz Ohio, is so stuck in my head right now. The hook that has me captive,

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe

just won’t let go. In all the best possible ways, of course. “I never thought about love when I thought about home.” Stand up straight, yo…

Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I lift my shirt up
Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I lift my shirt up

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I’ll never marry but Ohio don’t remember me

Lay my head on the hood of your car
I’ll take it too far
Lay my head on the hood of your car
I’ll take it too far

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I’m on a blood buzz
Yes I am
I’m on a blood buzz
I’m on a blood buzz
God I am
I’m on a blood buzz

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I’ll never marry but Ohio don’t remember me

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I’m on a blood buzz
Yes I am
I’m on a blood buzz
I’m on a blood buzz
God I am
I’m on a blood buzz
