take what you've got, give it away. nothing belonged to you in the first place. if they're all us and we're all them, then it's like trading between your own hands. i thought i had it figured out. one day it all went missing. i spent the night stuck wide awake, my thoughts all so dissonant. started thinking maybe i was living wrong. i took my head off for the night, didn't want to believe it. i started spending more time being mindful of my breathing, sleeping on the floor feeling so withdrawn. since i was young i have been told how i should measure success. work hard and you can have a life of luxury and excess. i was walking blind when i tripped and fell. maybe it doesn't matter if i give you or you give me. i'm wondering if those are both different parts of one thing. really now it's all that it ever was. you and me thinking it's us and them. can you see that all the difference is pretend? you always get higher with someone else than if you try to climb up all by yourself.
I bought Youth a while back and thought to myself that this was the best thing ever, couldn't forget about it, always singing with it at the top of my lungs. Must admit, with Everybody is going to heaven, I fell out, the style really wasn't my jam, but with this one, man, the emotions in these songs are strong, the instruments are spot on, and man, the vocals! This is an amazing album, keep it up guys. SlashedSucubus
