Carry the Zero
Built to Spill Lyrics


I'm not knocking your want
To carry that home

Took it with you
When you moved and got it broke

Found the pieces
We counted them all alone

Didn't add up
Forgot to carry a zero

I can't be your
Apologist very long

I'm surprised that
You'd want to carry that on

Count your blemishes
You can't
They're all gone

I can't see your response
Putting them back on

Like they're waiting for your guard to fall
So they can see it all and you're so
Occupied with what other persons are
Occupied with
And vice versa

And you've become
What you thought was dumb
A fraction of the sum

Yeah, you've become
Yeah, you have become

A fraction of the sum
The middle and the front

And now it's coming back
Hasn't it come too far?

I was trying to help but I guess
I pushed too hard

Now we can't even touch it
Afraid it'll fall apart

My boyfriend passed away 2 days ago and this song has been on my head this whole time. Vincent loved it and played it so many times. He was so happy to listen to it live and I'm glad to have experienced that with him. He was only 24 and our son only 2 months old. RIP my love.

I wish all the good things to you

@John H Oh goodness gracious, I so wish I could just hug you! The rest of this song is going to make me cry even harder than it did before.

Im a truck driver. I drive local now, but when i was an over the road trucker i always jammed the shit out of built to spill when I drove thru Idaho. Sounds cheesy but it always made the ride more fun.
