I found some words of wisdom written in a bathroom stall.
It said, “we all walk the same straight line,"
but I just happen to crawl.
I read about landmarks in chapters
then learned more using restrooms in them.
You bottle in salts from distant seas,
I use my hands to block the glare off them.
I'll walk my wrinkled feet back to you.
I find my way back to you.
Everyone got sick at the same time.
This is older and deeper than that.
I bet you wish I was one of those clean-shaved men
with perfect lives and perfect backs.
I'll walk my rotting feet back to you.
Our legs won’t grow until we step into the unknown.

    Song MeaningFrom the track-by-track: "I left community college to tour and play music. I learned and saw things I never would have in a college classroom or dorm, but once it all caught up to me I realized that my normal is as boring as everybody else's normal. Life is relative, and the grass is always greener. That aside, the guitar lead in the chorus reminds me of a Mazzy Star melody."
