I walk alone and I
I ride alone and I
I rock myself to sleep
Baby, there ain't enough room in this world
For people like you
And horrors like me

A time of darkness
There lived a girl in a cave in the woods
Disguised as a bee
At night she would fly into the city
Sting the cause
And sting the cost
And she would hover over me
And so we sing
We're surfacing
We're surfacing

I stand alone and I
I fight alone and I
Stay clean by feeling cheap
And baby, there ain't enough room in this world
For perfection's like you
And monsters like me

A time of darkness
You will look absurd and you will feel inert
And you will go looking to blame somebody
You see I used to think that I'd get over everything
But everything just got
Over me

I'm some of it
You're some of it
We're some of it
I'm certain of it

I walk alone and I
I ride alone and you know
That's all right by me
See baby cause
Here ain't enough room in this world
For a great, great many things

    General Commenti think the title captures the whole song; it is the fine art of falling apart.

    "i walk alone and i ride alone"

    Matt Good's aneuristic lyricsm always provides an insight and from these lines, the loneliness of the world when everything starts falling apart is captured here.

    "There ain't enough room in this world/For people like you/And horrors like me"

    The justification of giving up he offers hits too close to home; we're falling apart and "looking to blame somebody" so we don't die for nothing. Everyone just wants to remembered.

    "I'm certain of it"

    Ever felt everything collapse? There's so much unknown. But if you're certain of it, you're that much closer to fixing yourself.
