At the center where they go on weekdays
It takes hours just to slate that thirst
Heavy heels and a daunting post rate
Bad idea for your blistered toast
To my will well you’re getting close
So say adios
The conjecture is reject the rose
Don’t stay high on a abuse

Sometimes it feels like the world’s stuffed with feathers
Table bottom gum holding it together
A Cold Son
I am
A Cold Son

You can chase it but it wont come easy
It’s a revelry so silver quick
It gets solid when you’re old and hazy
Takes no leverage to make me click
To my will well you’re getting close
The tension goes
Defy conjecture and reject the rose
Don’t stay high on abuse

Who is that said the world is my oyster
I feel like a nempho trapped in a cloister
A cold son
I am
A cold son

Face plant stumble ahead
Victim of your rival pretensions know me
Face plant stumble ahead
Rival to the bitter pretensions know me

Cold son
I am
Cold son

    General Commenti know exactly how table bottom gum holds everything together. you'll see. touch it when you're nervous.

    to me

    the song is an existential discussion about the physiology of exstacy, *It's* relationships,

    and Desire. consequently, Fear.

    Perhaps the eternal return of Desire and consumption are, in and of themselves, not somethings to be avoided.

    From this vantage point, intensity is objectified and projected alongside the original Subjects into the future.

    In any such projection, we recreate mirror images of ourselves - making real a world of assumption and illusion.

    General CommentI have no clue on the lyrics, and I simply don't give a damn. Terrific song. I discovered this album a few weeks ago and found it great, so "jammy" without being indulgent... Genius!

    General CommentSome corrections:

    [slake] that thirst
    a daunting [pulse] rate
    blistered [toes] (as previously mentioned)
    to my [wheel well] you're getting close
    the tension [grows]
    a [reverie] so silver quick
    2nd verse - [accept] the rose

    The first verse makes me think about mallwalkers. 60-somethings powerwalking through the mall in their sweatsuits, checking their pulses.

    General CommentI agree with Santiagof, great jam album. One of the best albums of the year. I think the song is about drug abuse though.

    General CommentI agree with bS.O.S. To me this song is about drug abuse. It may not be, but it sure can fit the profile lyrically. "Sometimes it feels like the worlds filled with feathers/table bottom gum holding it together", whatever it may be about, it's not about the best times in life.

    General CommentCould be a lot of things. Maybe drugs. It also could be about addiction to exercise. I think it's more of a parable about getting old...and all the fears that come with it, death, love, are we wasting time, am I doing what I set out to do, that sort of thing.

    "Cool" could refer to being hip or temperature. "Son" could also be "sun" too.
