Depression sets in again
I know how that goes
Nothing seems to work out anymore
And you hurt so much
Feel so helpless
Want to crawl into a hole somewhere
And just give up
And just give up
And just give up
But I can’t let you
Because you never let me
Let me
You never let me
You never let me

And you say your life is useless
And you say this is all meaningless
But I, I know that that is just bullshit
Because you will not give up
Because you will not give up
Give up
Because the moment that you do
I would give up too
That’s what I’d do
That’s what I’d do

And it’s not easy when this happens
Fighting something, that you can’t see but
Don’t you worry because I’ll get in there
And take some hits for you
I’ll take some hits for you
I’ll take them all for you
I’ll take them all for you
No more limits
No more limits

Take them
Take them
Take them all for
And I know your life’s not useless
And if there’s some way, I’d prove it
When the lava comes
I swear, I’ll block it
It will not touch you
It will not touch you
Touch you

And if the lava monster came
I would block his flame from hurting you
From hurting you
He will not hurt you
Will not hurt you
Will not touch you

    General Commenti felt the need to comment because no one else has.
    i sense that the person he is writing about is vulnerable in his eyes and he feels the need to be protective.

    General CommentI think he was like, 13 when he recorded this song! It's pretty impressive for a young 'un. It's such a cute and distubing mix of intense feelings and child-like imagination (with the idea of a lava monster).

    General CommentThis song isn't by Bright Eyes. It's by Conor Oberst. I think it's about being in love with someone, who thinks everything is pointless. He is saying that he will look after than whatever comes.

    Lava Monster makes me think of the little monsters in Yoshi's Island :]

    General CommentWhat's the supposed to mean?
    This song is by Conor O' himself.
    Bright Eyes weren't even formed then.

    General Comment"water" was released in '93, when he was 13, which was put out under lumberjack records [which later became saddle creek]. then "here's to special treatment" came out in '94 right before he was going into high school.

    General CommentThis song certainly brings back some memories...
    The sad thing is that even if you try really hard, you can't protect someone from everything...
