"The Walk-Around Problem" as written by and Nansel/kasher/oberst/bowen....
It's the same plan inscribed on me
Cause there's only one design
There's some time allowed to me
But Saturday came, and went, and I

And I still want, and I still need
Just don't remind me, just don't remind me
Cause I still feel, and I still need
To feel like I have learned, adapted, and tried
The hungry ones survive
The rest just fall behind
The rest just wait to die

I could have learned to deal with
Kneeling down and living out my life
Like I'm supposed to
But it's too late now for that

These eyes were circumcised from the design
Wait, have I been ruined?
Well, such blinding faith could ruin us

And from now on I will not hide this fear
(Ruin us)
This evolving heart, from stage to stage
Til nothing's left to learn
Cheated and lied, the weakest ones subside
They'll just get left behind
They just can't wait to die, and neither can I

    General Commenttheres a lot of talk of eyes on this album.
    including the latin phrases on the sleeve.
    they have to do with
    1-tears dry to nothing but our eyes...die? or sink?
    2-beauty is empty eyes
    or something.
