lyrics

Try and not understand
The benefits
(of) years of practice
Playing pick-up sticks
In the slow-mo
Letting go
Of the globe

So when a tear appears
And you turn to face it
Recognize the face
The face of a friend
Who's there
When you want to go
Go on home

Beyond the trying
Teeth-grinding
Water-stained drawings in Magic Marker
Beyond the heart-wrenching
Ass-clenching
Counting down the seconds on the microwave 'til dinner
We lay us down to bathe
We lay down in the waves

Painted by big hands
And painted in big strokes
The globe fit in our throats
With no choking
What games left to play?
Dumbshits can't lose
I don't need to leave any clues
For anyone whose cluelessness points the way

Beyond the flinching
Throat-itching
Don't take credit for what arises naturally
Beyond the heart-wrenching
Hand-outstretching
Listening to crescendos in those famous rock 'n' roll songs
We lay down in the dark
But it's never what we thought
