Shot through with new and now
The thrill of loving someone that you shouldn't love
But it's moving at the pace of the clouds
So pull your little crystal from the boulevard

I can beat the day awake
Suck the water straight out from the stone
We got omens that are tailor-made
For every situation that you're conjuring

Out
Out of reach
Is out, out of
Reaches out

Gail force intimacy
Every time I get some I feel oh so near
There's no more running gags to attract
The drowsy blond carousers on the avenue

I can see you hiding out
Shrinking like the daisy that you're born to be
You did your thing and now you deserve
The voltage was the best thing that I ever knew

Out
Out of reach
Is out, out of reach
Is out, out of scenery
Chew the scenery

Well I know the tide will turn
I know the tide will turn
I know the tide will turn
I know the tide will turn
I know the tide will turn
I know the tide will turn

    General CommentWhy would anyone think Malkmus was losing it? This is his fourth great record since going solo. This is the song that turned me onto him. Absolutely haunting. The voltage was the best thing that I ever knew.

    General CommentObviously something is out of reach which he wants. The thrill of loving someone that you shouldn't love. However, he knows the tide will turn his way eventually to end this song optimistically.

    General Commenti don't really really know what it means..
    but somehow i totally relate, and this song completely breaks my heart at the moment.

    General CommentThe first line is "Shot through with new and now."

    General CommentI love how the chorus is two thoughts made into one:

    Out of reach

    and

    Reaches out
