about

Conceived in a excessively huge house in Wilmette, written in Logan Square, spring 2014. A song about fatalism.

lyrics

I’ve learned to process the end before anything starts
Always had the teeth but not the skin of a shark
If you break my heart into a million pieces I’ll already know what defeat is
It’s the look on my face when I’m lying awake just before daybreak
Before the pressure cracks
Before the thresher comes
I will breach the surface
Cause I believe that the effort’s worth it
“Sometimes you need a cul de sac,” she said
Well honey I’ll believe that when I’m dead
When you finally lower me into the coffin, it’s a moment I’ve thought on often
And the fear that I’ll drown in the absence of sound deep underground
What will my legacy be?
If I admit defeat
What will you write around my name?
If I can’t leave my own stain
Before the pressure cracks
Before the thresher comes
I will breach the surface
Cause I believe that the effort’s worth it
Before the curtain falls
Before the harvest comes
I will bloom with a blinding fury
In the last rays of the sun
I will swim forever forward
