You say you just want to stand there and dim out
Just going to root there in space
So because there ain't nobody really joked about your inventory
Subcelestial articles from neutral stations

From the game participants and by far most lineal family
Break strike, pattern stripe, break to face

When you get so quiet and depressed, hidden
And I drop away again
Can't understand, I want to die again
I'm out here in the swell
Getting fucked up trying to cure you
It's so draining
Really, how can I help if you won't talk to me?

Thought you were a runaway
Not just a cliché

Eg har aldri tenkt meg sanningi
Som ein husfugl
Men um ho so vore
Kan du godt strjuka henne med fjøri
Og ikkje jaga henne upp i ei krå
Til ho snur ugleaugo og klør imot deg
Andre held sanningi for
Ei kald knivsegg
Ho er både
Yin og yang
Ormen i graset
Og fuglekongen som lettar frå ørni
Når hu trur seg høgst
Eg har òg set

When you get so quiet and depressed, hidden
And I drop away again
Can't understand, I want to die again
I'm splashing in the waves
Getting fucked up trying to cure you
It's so draining
How can I help if you won't talk to me?

I thought you were a special friend
I'm your friend

    Translation"I never thought the truth, could also be your lie
    But she has been so heavily hurt, can you not see?
    And not chased up into that dark corner
    Until she turns the claws of her owl against you
    Others hold the truth close
    She holds knives
    She is both yin and yang,
    a snake in the? grass and the king bird that calls it's self love.
    She keeps herself on a high pedestal Which I have also seen"

    General CommentKevin Barnes knows me too well. I couldn't have said this better myself.

    General CommentThe foreign language is probably Norwegian, and it's probably Nina doing the reciting.

    This song sounds kinda like new territory for Kevin and of Montreal.
