- Wren (feat. Alvin Schutmaat) - Mtns
Fuck it. I finished that shit anyway. Think I’m gonna let a kidney stone keep me sidelined?
I drove a long way just to end up there with no conclusion.
They say way up north is where we all go when we die
But there is nothing blessed about this place. It’s an illusion.
You can almost hear it when it passes you by!
It passes you by!
The interstate still smells of arson and this inner shame
But there is no turning back this time! I cannot escape!
Sometimes I look down at my hands and they assume the blame
I wrote my name in paint but it never did translate!
It’s all illusion, and you can almost hear it when it passes you by.
She said, “It kills me the same old way.”
These tired eyes of mine have witnessed more than they could take
and now this soul I’d built is just this worn out, empty space
They tore this city down with only matches and a candle
She had that same, old, sorry look still draped across her face
