"Your Own Kind" as written by and Colin Meloy....
So lay back now, can’t you
Let your mind unbraid you
Summer reading, this passage you like
So lay the lights low, can’t you
Let your soul unwind you
Drop the pages of the sheltering sky

And just ride the tumbling down
Your little nowhere town
It’s takin’ you back to your own kind.
It’s takin’ you back to your own kind.
Just ride and never believe we were to come this far
So, take yourself back to your own kind
Take yourself back to your own kind
Because my kind wasn’t good enough

So amazed that
Just to hear your whisper
A little nervous now to safely return
So disregard my clumsy
Attempts to keep you smiling
But I’d forgotten what I thought I had learned

And just ride the tumbling down
Your little nowhere town
It’s takin’ you back to your own kind
It’s takin’ you back to your own kind
Just ride and never believe we were to come this far
So, take yourself back to your own kind
Take yourself back to your own kind
Because my kind wasn’t good enough

So lay back now, can’t you
The summer sun can blind you
You play softly across the bend of your throat
No commitment to the
No agenda followed
Forget the sorrows that have dashed out your hope

And just ride the tumbling down
Your little nowhere town
It’s takin’ you back to your own kind
It’s takin’ you back to your own kind
Just ride and never believe we were to come this far
So, take yourself back to your own kind
Take yourself back to your own kind
Because my kind wasn’t good enough
