lyrics

THE HOUSES WE GREW UP IN


In a tree, if I’m sleeping, it behooves me
getting real, singing an old country song inside
Time to drive, time to drive, so impermanent
I ride with the night behind me I can feel

I unzip the paper, and I walk out in the beer
It takes me to a parking lot of ears
and everyone’s arrived, everyone with sparkles
everyone with raccoon heads and idols
I don’t think I understand how the supernovas work out,
how the rooftops I hang out on all get blown out
When you shake me by the hand I will ruin you
with mercy I will bury you with no one’s listening anyway

Beside yourself, if you’re with me, I will save you every beauty
Un-plug our kites and blend in with the tides
Time to drive, time to drive, the satellites and blinking
The facts aren’t what you’re thinking, they’re alive

I remake your image, and I fly up where it’s clear
I find myself a tennis court of deer
and everyone’s arrived, everyone we’ve startled
everyone with raccoon hearts and idylls
I will make you understand how the politics are fucked up
how the houses we grew up in need to wake up
When I shake you by the hand will you ruin me
with mercy will you notice now there’s someone listening anyway
