When will you do what you say you’ll do? / How could you really do it? / Why you keep on running? / Baby settle down / Why you keep on running? / You’ll lose your home / Why you keep on running? / Baby settle down /Why you keep on running? / Run on, run on.
You’ll rule your den. / Crawlin black spider baby / Crawlin black spider
"When I was 21, I wanted to save the world. I still do. But half the time I’m still trying to save myself first."
"I sometimes see a shortcoming in myself, how little patience or understanding I have for many people in the way they act. I am able to see the fragility in some, but I only have so much time to wade through their manipulations and traps and draining behaviour."
"You should never be here too much; be so far away that they can’t find you, they can’t get at you to shape, to mould. Be so far away, like the mountains, like the unpolluted air; be so far away that you have no parents, no relations, no family, no country; be so far away that you don’t know even where you are. Keep far away; keep a distance which can never be crossed over; keep a passage open always through which no one can come. Don’t let them find you; don’t come into contact with them too closely. You should never be here too much, be so far away that even you cannot find yourself."
Neutral Milk Hotel — Oh Comely
Oh comely, I will be with you when you lose your breath, Chasing the only meaningful memory you thought you had left.
I can swing my megaphone,
and long arm the rest.
It’s easier and better
to just beat it from the chest of desire.
