Let me part the stocks and the flocks in the fields you roam You're distracted, re-enacting the dreams you're reeling from I can hear you run, I could steal the hum Of the snow on the road of this bleeding land With my cupped hands, I understand She says, "here, this is the place where I can't take no more I am here because I won't let them go If you can stand to hold my hand, I could stay." And we start to pretend that we're friends without listening You're distracted, disconnected from lines you're ignoring Underscoring and the splintering Of the skin on your face, are we talking now? Would you walk me down if I come around? She says, "here, this is the place where I can't take no more I am here because I won't let them go If you can stand to hold my hand, I could stay."

Nevermind Me 03:04
I was a fire in a dream I was the first there in between your waking and your slumber that fleeting moment you're outnumbered I shouted warnings to the flesh that mocked the rigors of my tests Licking the hair from their stocks i burn, i burn even the rock So, when you reach to find the lock, outstanding Your fingertips and your eyes, they are demanding You may not touch that which you reach for Your mind aglaze with yesterdays and before Oh, but if you find me just unwind me stand behind me and Nevermind Me

I am the son of an immigrant man He'd help you up from the ground you fell on But he won't stay to talk He shines his shoes just like I don't He wakes up with the moon and sleeps with the sun And he smokes like a train And if I was to go first He'd carry my name to the waves Because he loves like the smell before rain And it's right like his Mary chain

The low, electric glow – static snows in the lobby Dull TV, magazines, waiting rooms can't hide me From the sting, paper sheets, bloodwork and the IV And the whirring machines while the nurses reassure me: This will be quick and easy, I'm not gonna feel a thing Lie and say it'll be alright, like a stray falling asleep 'Cause I'm so good at hurting myself Pulse is slow, faint metronome on my left side Beneath my protruding spine You can hardly hear at night White flag, blindfold covering my sunken eyes And a line of rifles aimed at my sick mind
