What can we do to make this worse?
Where can we lay down
a blanket of fallen leaves
Too thick too sweep?

Scatter dry heaves.
My stomach's turning.
Floorboards keep moving in
the direction of casualties.
No immunities,
At least that’s how it seems.

Don’t make a sound, it throws me off.
My center of gravity is lost.
Don’t fake alarms, don’t siren off,
Don’t make a sound, it throws me off.

Branches enclose
These walls won’t hold.
Don’t tell from the peril of
the roots of your family tree
Or let them see,
Cause it's buried too deep.

Don’t make a sound, it throws me off.
My center of gravity is lost.
Don’t fake alarms, don’t siren off,
Don’t make a sound, it throws me off.

If you only knew
Trying to do
Trying to do
Keep my head high
Remain upright
Remain upright
visualize
objects in sky
objects in sky

If you only knew
that this will lead us underground
they will face this underground
I will be there underground
waiting patient underground

She sways over to me, pointing overboard,
But I can’t see nothing.
She sways over to me, she’s still going on,
But I can’t hear anything.
She sways over to me, pointing overboard,
But I can’t see nothing.
She sways over to me, she’s still going on,
But I can’t hear anything.

Don’t make a sound, it throws me off
My center of gravity is lost.
Don’t fake alarms, don’t siren off
Don’t make a sound, it throws me off.

    General Comment:Silversun pickups makes some incredibly dreamy songs. This one make me feel like I'm dreaming but also there are lucid and incredibly aware moments, it's like a song that you would play after you've been seasick all day and trying to compose yourself in front of your loved other (feels like going on a cruise) and after all that energy spent being sick, falling asleep becomes so easy.
