"the crawl" as written by and Dave Alvin....
laid out flat on my back
the hours turn into days that burn away into the black
makes me see in different ways
I'm soft underneath
the surface not my stronger
and I'm holding on but I can't wait much longer
I've got this reeling feeling
I'm got this burning yearning
as though the paint in peeling
inside my head
decay on display
for you to witness to a self-fulfulling prophecy
the loss of my humanity
nervous having scratched the surface, laughing at my lack of purpose
if you're part of the crown you're an insect
been there, done that, fuck it
I'm not apathetic
I'm not sympathetic
old man I want to flip your car
turn your life upside down
divide intervention or natural selection
it's justice, it's pure
I want these hills to burn
