lyrics

I don't have the greatest "turn radius."
I hope you don't mind
my ten-point about face at the end of this sentiment.
I swear I mean what I mean to say,
but all my language is set
to the tempo of the Doomsday Clock,
and, similarly, there will be no body there
to finally push both long and short hands to the top,
because no one ever has the time
for goodbyes on the telephone in this movie.

Still, you can always find me
stoned by the romanescos
in some suburban snow globe
burning through a notebook
trying to nail down how it feels
to be uncertain how to deal
with the way that you've been feeling as of late.

Is all this self-guided therapy
really doing anything for me?
I think I'm too numb to tell.

Father, son, and the holy ghost
won't all fit on one piece of toast
no matter how well you burn it.

I fall down
every night
and hit every stair in this well
I've so carefully designed
to hold me down
until the bubbles stop.

Because I know how to drink until your thinking quiets down.
How to drink until you're the only one around.
But I miss you more than I could ever say
in another voicemail fifteen states away.

Cuz, I spend so much time locked in the past
I fear it's all I'll ever have to look forward to

—unless we bid this era adieu.

Where I fall down
every night
and hit every stair in this world
I've so carefully designed
to hold me down until the bubbles......

Stop saying shit like that.
You know it only makes your momma sad.

So just shut up.

Just look at the water.
