St. Vincent - Laughing With A Mouth Of Blood Lyrics




Just like an amnesiac
Trying to get my senses back
(Oh, where did they go?)

Laughing with a mouth of blood
From a little spill I took
(Oh, what are you laughing at?)

See I traded my plot of land
For a plane to anywhere
(Oh, where do you go?)

And I can't see the future
But I know its got big plans for me
(Oh, what does it see?)

All of my old friends aren't so friendly
All of my old haunts are now all haunting me

Holed up at the Motel Ritz
With a televangelist
(Oh what did he say?)

At the bottom of a swimming pool
With all the water out of it
(How'd you get in there?)

I'm sending consolation prizes
To my next of kin, allies
(Oh, they'll be so thrilled)

And I can't see the future
But I know it's watching me
(Wonder what it sees)

All of my old friends aren't so friendly
All of my old haunts are now all haunting me

Tell my sister that I miss her
Tell my brother that it gets much easier
Tell my sister that I miss her
Tell my brother that it gets much easier

All of my old friends aren't so friendly
And all of my old haunts are now all haunting me
All of my old friends aren't so friendly
And all of my old haunts are now all haunting me

  6. Laura Martínova

    I LOVE THIS ST.VINCENT SIDE. PLEASE ST. VINCENT COME BACK TO THIS SIDE OF YOURS SO CUTE

  7. João Richart

    Just discovered this video and it is G E N I U S

  8. Patrick Stanton

    One of those rare videos that come from across the pond, once in a decade, that is actually amusing. Hey the video was made in 2010 so just a year to go, I can’t wait for the next one! Who says the Americans don’t have a sense of humour? The music, by the way, was excellent, which the Americans are good at.

  9. Alicia St.John-Batman

    I want us all to live in that bookstore while Annie keeps playing songs!

  10. Hector Vadair

    This is a great artist, a superb song, and what a video. Anybody has told it was so funny ?? ;-) or, is it because I'm ..French ? ah ah !

  11. Clarissa Gomez

    Tbh st vincent is the reason I started watching portlandia

  12. Jolena Hansbarger

    Haha 1:15 When did the flyer go up...? My life.

  13. S S

    Whenever I am low this is a must see🎸

  14. KENKENNIFF

    Theres a flyer up higher

  15. Colby Flanigan

    It's so weird that this is pre Portlandia

  16. Maddie Goss

    imagine a sad woman

  17. Artemis Arthur

    Carrie Brownstein knows how fans act at shows and does the perfect impression. So freaking funny. Especially when you start playing and people leave or turn around hahaha

  18. Artemis Arthur

    It would make my heart feel better if you would be quiet.

  19. Sherri Sides

    Damn girl how did I miss this video. Funny! How did you keep a straight face? Awesome guitar work.

  20. Stormy Carranza

    my heart. <3

  21. thenoosehangsfromheaven S U P P O S E D L Y

    When Lorde and Lana Del Rey were popular, I told my friends, "fuck it" "If you want 'real' and 'earthy' - take my advice and listen to this woman.

  22. Lottie Licorice

    Portlandia + St.Vincent = my life complete

  23. Soaribb

    I knew this had to be a single

  24. freetofu

    Bookstore concerts are the best.

  25. soundboardtinkerer

    whoa . . . awesomeness song!!!! brilliant woman

  26. ModernEphemera

    God Portlandia is so unfunny

    carlos lima

    ModernEphemera It really is. The only thing funny are the guests sometimes, and that is sometimes.

  27. caarcrinolaas

    Kindof really fucking depresses me that the opening advertisement chosen for my [apparent] demographic is for diaper rash ointment. That's how it works with advertising that's permitted to be more offensive due to its 'algorithmic' nature, right?
    Why have humans not learned that nothing we create will ever be random, because we are so much a part of each other?
    Is it because many of us only identify with the people we know, and not enough with the ones we don't?
    Certainly the advertisements directed towards men don't suggest that something the size of a watermelon grew inside of their body and had to be be forced out of an opening which was perhaps the size of a lemon. The inherent trauma and emotional confusion/degredation should be implied. It doesn' take extraordinary powers of empathy to understand that, for those individuals who aren't personally affected by the destructive ways of human reproductive practices.
    I've almost been led to believe breeding ISN'T the only purpose men serve on this planet.
    I've definitely been led to believe it's mine.
    I always imagine advertisements chosen for males depict vacations or cars or something. Something PROMISING and INDICATIVE OF A FUTURE THEY CREATE FOR THEMSELVES.
    Not a future created for them. No women know 'freedom' in a world controlled by penises.

    ["Don't point. It reminds me of a penis."]

  28. Kelly Dawson

    This video is so funny because so many artists have experienced the same exact crap from non-promoting venues and fans w/o boundaries - love it

  29. Pete S

    Annie is just delightful, love her character, so sweet and polite and one of the prettiest girls ive ever clapped eyes on!! Lovely soothing voice too!!

  30. seriousbe

    Superb song, that strings sample is beautiful...

  31. YaggaYaggaYa

    Didn't know about Portlandia when I first watched this, three years later now I get it

  32. Arkadiusz Malinowski

    This song is a wonderful commentary on this world

  33. pamgwen97

    carrie and annnieee. YES

  34. Aubrey

    Her voice is so pretty. <3

  35. sadbutglade

    she should play on steven universe

  36. Thomas Gladders

    Peeing myself- 🤘🏽

  37. petrosros

    lovely song lovely singer.

  38. Sam Sprout

    What with the little symbol that kind of looks like the orthodox cross.

  39. Callisto _

    Ha, this reminds me when I ran into some people practicing a song and they played it through for me but after a minute or so I suddenly felt awkward standing in front of them by myself like a one person concert

  40. Gandhar Kulkarni

    i feel angry at them for making her leave,even though i know that this was staged

  41. Mawnmusic

    wow she was good back then

  42. Dhakadice

    Love the captions on the shelves.
    "Magic, Science" ;D

  43. Aggeliki Triantafyllou

    Forever in love. Im waiting to call me Annie. You need someone to lean on after your breakup with Cara.

  44. Cinamatic Fiction

    worst advertising ever.

  45. DerbJd

    Is this Portlandia?

  46. Lin-Manuel Miranda is adorable, change my mind

    why is the man dressed up like a girl?

    Debra Duval

    Portlandia, its a show

    Lin-Manuel Miranda is adorable, change my mind

    +Debra Duval oh ok

  47. John Preston

    I sort of wish that she wouldn't wear carefully-applied make up. It is very distracting. (And I don't agree with the naysayers who dislike the video. I think it is refreshing, and hilarious. )

  48. Leslie Elaine

    What a great sport she is

  49. razrv3lc

    THANK GOD. I finally found a song of hers without that scratchy sort of guitar that she uses in a lot of her songs. Her voice is so beautiful so I'm glad I found a song where it's more of the focus.

    Eville Nick

    A lot of "Actor", the album this is from, is lighter. She was inspired by old Disney soundtracks so a lot of the album is really symphonic. "Strange Mercy" is really chill. Really the only album that is super BLARGH and guitar heavy is the most recent one.

    Brenton Aslakson

    A lot of her earlier work doesn't rely on her custom guitar-type, but her self titled and most recent album uses that new direction of sound

  50. James Murphy

    👉I💓Portlandia👈

  51. madcatclaws

    I love how even though I know its just a silly video it still makes me cringe :)

  52. Jack Shelley

    love st vincent!!!!

  53. cjmonte

    omg... this woman blows me away, talent to write sing and play..    and geesh.. I do hope she is the "real humble" which makes her so very beautifully attrictive, and I mean that on top of her lovely looks..

  54. Trey Earnhardt

    Toni is my most favorite character on Portlandia.

  55. McCall Cruse

    I love when you can see Carrie almost start to break character and laugh right before Annie plays the song!

  56. Francis Zerbib

    Can't be more funny

  57. jeff oliva

    Of all of her videos that I have seen, this is the worst. The sensibilities of the video and the song are in too much contrast. Plus, a solo performance to the sound of a full band seems amateur .

    three dee melodie

    it isnt really hers, its portlandia a tv show

  58. Le Dan Theman Playlists

    I would have let her play more. She clearly wanted to.

  66. Zara McInnes

    The 49 people who dislike this just gotta be the stupidest ever.

    Franky Uff

    @Zara McInnes Ikr with no taste in such amazing music.

  67. The Driver

    Just discovering her music. Better tardy than not at all at the party. What an excellent musician/songwriter. If I didn't know Portlandia, I'd be very confused...

  68. Paul Liptrott

    Skip to 1:56

  69. Youth Director

    I think this is so funny!

  70. Jessika

    oh now i know who these people are!!

  71. Austin Lucas

    I get the feeling the employees are depicted as not caring for the song; they're just looking at everything else in the store and they "clap clap clap" near the end like "nice, it's over."

    kristincharity1

    They're characters from the show, 'Portlandia'. That's the point

    Austin Lucas

    @kristincharity1 Thanks. I haven't watched that show outside this.

  72. Austin Lucas

    "I traded my plot of land for a plane to anywhere" = "I traded my grave for a ticket to Heaven"?

  73. Austin Lucas

    Song starts at 1:50
