The Tragically Hip - As Makeshift As We Are lyrics

You do the combat math
I'm the war artist
You can't take your shots back
I have to watch them miss
The basketball rim
Shook like a tambourine
Not an unlikely event
In a game that means nothing
In a game that means nothing

Makeshift we are
Lead never leaves your system no matter who you are
Makeshift we are
As makeshift as we are

You're a complex dune
I'm a cloud of octopus ink
You're and elusive tune
I'm more ice sculpture than I think
You're the neutral tribe
And I got the wrong openness
Here's where I slowly close my eyes
And say, "I'm too drunk for this"
Yeah, I'm too drunk for this

Makeshift we are
"Weaklings Make Trouble" you played on your guitar
Makeshift we are
As makeshift as we are
We are, we are, we are

The loneliest buoys
On dolphin property
You're as quiet as a fish
I only sing for the whole sea
From memory metal tension springs
We were gunsmoke and the truth
Let's shake some snow off of his shoulders
Let's shake some snow off of the roof
Let's shake some snow off of the roof

Makeshift we are
Occurring to each other under the setups of the stars
Makeshift we are
We imagine us here and here we are
Makeshift we are
Through half-squinted eyes becoming a mirage
Makeshift we are
We are, we are
