Move one inch at a time
Don't let this calm
Would it be easy to repeat the first line?
And my cellar, it won't run dry
Just keep drinking potion and you'll be alright
This is medicine with the motel in our price

How could the answer be wrong
If you don't respond today
It feels much safer to know
This is temporary
Fearing disclosure is not as well
We're going to the ocean to drown
Have you ever wished you were anybody else?

If you're acting alone,
I won't be so much closer than you are to him


How could your answer be wrong
If you don't respond today
It feels much safer to know
This is temporary
Fearing disclosure its not as well
He overshot the potions and drowned
Have you ever wanted anything?

You're asking too much.
You mistakenly feel lucky.

You can talk,
I am supposed to around
Supposed to be a ferocious sleeper
Don't you end

    General Commentmy mind's not a well. it won't run dry.
    just keep drinking water and you'll be alright.
    -Anthony Green

    I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.
    -Ernest Hemingway

    two amazing writers

    General Commentthe REAL lyrics

    Move one inch at a time
    And don’t make shit rhyme.
    Would it be too easy to repeat the first line?
    My mind’s not a well, it won’t run dry
    Just keep drinking water and you’ll be alright
    This is paralysis with no time at all to let go
    Don’t call me by my full name All this is temporary,
    it feels much Better to know that you won’t feel a thing.
    Don’t talk about it.
    Write it down but don’t ask for help.
    I can’t be honest with even myself.
    Did you ever wish you were somebody else?
    Just lasting this long,
    I feel relieved to let repetition save me
    Unremittingly (They pulled me in but) accomplishments are transient

    General Commentexcellent job

    love this song

    really hope it makes the new record

    it seems to me to be simply about having trouble coping with something being lost (i.e. a relationship, a life, etc.)

    General Commentclearly his best written work.

    circa survive is so intelligent.

    if you read their blogs, their ideas about culture and language and life in general, are so abstract and clever

    General Commentoh god i know. i love how they reach out to their audience so much by asking them their opinions in their blogs.

    General CommentTOTALLY. Lately it seems their music, though completely amazing, pales in comparison to their blogs and the connection they attempt to maintain with us. I've yet to find another band that does this.
