in a street full of sound, in a hall full of light from a crack in the ground, in the endless deafening bright in a gas station lot, in the grime and the gore in a place we forgot, alone in a dream on the floor in a half-baked nightmare, on a whim or a lark or a highway to nowhere out west in the tumbling dark he's been looking for a place to start to break old nature was always hard and every day feels like the last one and every day feels like the last one and every day feels like the last one it will be found old nature will dig its way up from underground no matter how far you bury it down in my dead front lawn in the late afternoon in a crumbling wall in the sky that you keep in your room in an unfinished plane as the engines burn out in the crease of a name in the terrified gape of my mouth in a bundle of nerves in a hurricane eye in a low humming stir that you hear when a heart rate climbs what is it exactly that you're trying to find? he's a too-close fly-by he's interminably tongue-tied, but he's gonna be all right every day feels like it's the last one every day feels like it's the last one every day feels like it's the last one i'll be around old nature will dig its way up from underground no matter how far you bury it down

amscray! 02:40
(what is it exactly that you're trying to find?) the only thing you've got is getting away your head runs off today already escaped the only thing you've got is getting away but you feel all right today you let yourself escape

let (1) 06:15
you're a mess! you're angry, unreasonable, i know you wish you thought less but i understand you can't and i know this isn't you at your best you are waiting for a signal that i don't think you'll ever quite get justification for living with: you have let your neurons rot but i know that you still want to spill that cacophony you've built in your brain and when you make that choice well, i will let your noise live in my head until the end of the day I won't let anyone know are you all right? did you wait for that sign in the sun, did you wait the whole night? that the words that you float might reach who they need the most just sometimes oh, to shout from a mountaintop down onto anyone in sight i was just on my way up there if you'd like to hitch a ride up though a curving line you can stay up there for as long as you'd like and then i'll drop you home i'll get back later alone call me and tell me if somehow our covers were blown i won't let anyone know and if you get found out or just can't keep it contained you want to shout at the ceiling but got nothing to say oh, the very first nagging gut reaction is to oughta fight back but if you're in someone's pity when you're sitting around caught dragging your feet all over the town never let anyone tell you you're just like that well let me offer advice for when it's late in the day if you've ascended the mountain either to scream or to pray you let it loose but in the morning it all bubbles right back yeah if you're approached by a stranger at the end of your line some suggestion is made the issue's all in your mind never let anyone tell you you're just like that don't let anyone know (never let anyone, never let anyone, never let anyone) tell you you're just like that

thanks 13:38
(you deserve, you deserve, you deserve, you deserve) and i i told a tale for you i traced a line around my head and i i've been sleeping on nails for you all tangled sheets on iron bed and at night even the slightest twitch or tremor needling my side 'till i'm awake and when i'm trying to get to sleep i will remember running through my mind and across the page and my own head will trace what i am living and somewhere in there you are muttering my name i will express my thanks for all that you are giving yelling with my voice too far away given a nervous laundry list of bad decisions i admit that i have made throughout my life i'd say the fact that i can stand to still be grinning qualifies me to now give out this advice: if despite your best intentions you are only wreaking havoc if your gaze is still unsteady and your concience is on loan oh just hide your shaking hands and keep your head on automatic and fight the million needle pressures, don't let anybody know so with my breath held i am saying thank you so in a hard sell i am saying thank you as the ground shakes i am saying thank you testing my heart rate i am saying thank you thank you and with no feeling i am saying thank you asleep on the ceiling i am saying thank you like a nervous twitch i am repeating thank you with a scratch that i won't itch i'm saying thank you thank you and in a panic attack, well, i am saying thank you and behind your back i am saying thank you and with my fate sealed i am saying thank you all this revealed i am still saying thank you, still saying thank you and when i can't breathe i am saying thank you and down on my knees i am saying thank you when my head is racing i am saying thank you, up all night pacing i am saying thank you thank you, i am saying thank you, i am saying thank you, i am saying louder and louder and louder and louder thank you, i am saying thank you, i am saying thank you, can you hear me? louder and louder and louder and louder can you hear me?

suspenduous 04:15
suspend us from a mountain hang us from the sky and we'll be fine how do you plan to get there will you survive the voyage or the climb? i hope you get there sometime there is nothing you could say to convince me that it's not a sign (that we're still alive) every choice you make that's yours is like screaming from a mountaintop to paradise i hope you get there sometime i hope you get there sometime

what if you were the butterfly setting off hurricanes be glad, be glad, be glad, that burden's not on you who knows how much time you'll have in decades or days? be glad, be glad, be glad, just make good use of it at the end of every day the picture's still on the screen be glad, be glad, be glad, take whatever you need but i'm sure it's motion blur and nothing to see i'm doing my best to not flutter my chest to not live in my head to not fall off my bed at night i'm doing my best to just think about less to just take what i see i'm just trying to be polite be glad, be glad, be glad, just make good use of it

let (2) 03:59
all your highs they comfort me the breath you take the way you speak all your highs they drive me down my hands they shake i smile and nod now and on repeat, the greatest! and on repeat, your voice and on repeat, the panic, and on repeat, the noise and i'll never let my heart attacks be reason to stay still i'll never give it space to breathe and i'll never let it spill i'm a mess and you're sorted out your grin, your jokes your lack of doubt i'm a mess and i'm terrified of the bridges you burn, the glint in your eyes and on repeat, all restless, and on repeat, i'll love and on repeat, can't help it, and on repeat, my pulse and even though you make me sweat i'll never let you go but most of all, i swear to god, i'll never let you know
10.
what are you looking for in a line that you've lost, through a panoramic shot? what are you looking for in a bundle of nerves have you forgot? what are you looking for dragging your feet through the clouds, always loping around what are you looking for you might never find it, you know will you ever come down? if i knew what to tell you to help i would write it in capitals there on the wall and you'd sleep through the whole night with every light on in the hall if i had a clue what to do i'd erase every terror you're worried about and i know you'd repay me if you ever figured out how i've got enough on my mind that i don't have the time to care about as much as i'd like, so if i'd ever wanted i'd easily leave you behind but if i find you in the back of a car, cold and huddled, pretending to starve i'll drive you back home from wherever we are we all deserve one particular thing a little respect, don't you think? we all deserve at very least a part that should always be a little respect (you deserve, you deserve) just take care of yourself

the mountain 01:04
on a carpet of grass under mountaintop sun i'd appear in a flash, in a "what have we done" in a spot that i'd found, through a line that i'd trace let the heat simmer down, let the neon lights fade under wind chimes for clouds in the great piercing blue with my back on the ground and my head in a tune up there let me make it, let my heart stop racing thank you.
