The surging blood rushes through me
In tune to the pulsing in my head
The message echoes over and over
What are you doing with your time?
I'm a piece of shit and tonight
My heart is reaching for the sky
I stand there, it just pumps harder and slower
My feet settle into earth
The twilight feels right
The shadows fade along the avenue

They talk all the time
And it's obvious that I hold my words in for too long
Our history creeps fast through the gutters
A revolution on my mind
Guess what? I give a shit
But I couldn't care less
About the lives they choose to live
And your eyes speak to me deeper and deeper
A truth that I have never known
The twilight feels right
The shadows fade into oblivion

So just forget all the regrets
That keep haunting you
They aren't worth your time
And just forget all those days
That dragged on for miles and miles
Leave them all behind
Leave them all behind

    General Commentthis is my favorite song on oh! calcutta! it's funny, a lot of people who have listened to this album do not really give credit to this song. but the drumming, guitars, and bass are all amazing. i think the lyrics and how the vocals are strewn together really make for one of the most unique songs on the album. at the same time, it's trademark larry arms. reminds me a little bit of the revisionist in the style its composed.

    anyway, a lot of the songs on this record have to do with abandoning regrets. the part that i really love is when chris sings, A REVOLUTION ON MY MIND, that whole 2nd verse is great.

    Our history creeps fast through the gutters.
    A revolution on my mind
    Guess what? I give a shit
    But I couldn't care less about the lives they choose to live
    And your eyes speak to me deeper and deeper,
    a truth that i have never known.
    The twilight feels right, the shadows fade into oblivion.
