​Store (Was: Aisle)

This song is by The Mountain Goats and appears on the album Jam Eater Blues - SubPop Singles Club (2002).

In the five minutes worth of lost time that I had
When I was passed out on the supermarket floor
I saw you at the head of the heavenly chorus
And I heard your song ringing all through the store

In the five minutes when my broadcast got pre-empted
I saw you touch down. you were no longer dead
I was happy to see ya. I had lots of questions
And I put my hand to the wound in your head
Ah, the blood!
All of that blood!
All of that warm blood flowing freely from you

In the five minutes when I was dead to the world
In a place far away from my friends and my home
I saw you with a smile on your radiant face
Amidst all of the cans and the glass and the chrome

And in those five minutes, my signal was jammed
The frequencies that I received were so pure
That I almost believed that the sight of the hole in your skull
Was a thing that my heart could endure
Ah, the blood!
All of that blood!
All of that warm blood flowing freely from you!
