[Song starting at 8:55]

Hey now, overcome your concern about the weather
And whether or not I'm still alive
Check the vital signs
So soft spoken and shy
Never gets high anymore
Did you poison my food
Forgive me, I'm a paranoid fool

I've been lying wide awake paralyzed by the buzzing of the television
These modern things we know
Getting you off
These modern things we know
Getting you off

Haunting us, these different meanings and spectral beings.
We're fighting sleep with broken, rusted weaponry
Sing so softly and low like you want me to hear
Stolen what you can't afford
What's that muffled beating for?

I've been lying wide awake paralyzed by the buzzing of the television
These modern things we know
Getting you off
These modern things we know
Getting you off

Something I could never say
Speak so softly
Something I could never say
Speak so softly
(Stolen what you can't afford)
(What's that muffled beating for?)
Something I could never say
Speak so softly

    That part always gives me chills.

    General CommentThis is the song House of Leaves. It starts in the CD around 9 minutes into Meet Me in Montauk, but it's a completely different song, not a second part.
