Sleeping Lessons
The Shins Lyrics


Go without
'Til the need seeps in
You're low, anymore
Collecting your novel petals for the stem

And glow
Glow
Melt and flow
You disarrayed your the fragile fray
Spill it out on the ragged floor
A thousand different versions of yourself

And if the old guard still offend
They got nothing left on which you depend
So enlist every ounce
Of your bright blood
And off with their heads
Jump from the hook
You're not obliged to swallow anything you despise
See, those unrepenting buzzards want your life

And they got no right
As sure as you have eyes
They got no right

Just put yourself in my new shoes
And see that I do what I do
Because the old guard still offend (their pudgy hearts and shiny hands)
They got nothing left on which we depend
So enlist every ounce
Of your bright blood
And off with their heads
Jump from the hook
You're not obliged
To swallow anything you despise
That you despise
That you despise
That you despise
That you despise

The first time I heard this damn song I was alone in the back seat of a 98 Honda Civic beater. It was 1am, raining outside, and my 2 best friends had just picked me and my bags up from the abusive relationship I left that night. It was a long drive in the dark and it was raining, but everything was completely silent inside the car and I'd never felt more ready to just be myself again.

Seeing everyone that listened to this song years ago and came back with better lives make me hope I can do the same. Remind me to come back in a few years.
