seems like you just started noticing
how noticeably bad things really are
and then you walk past this couple arguing
in a rolled up window parked car
an all that gesticulated bitterness
an alla that muffled yelling hell
it's like it just starts wafting at you
like a big furry rat died inside of that wall kinda smell

bad dreams like this roll in like a cold front
thunderous thunder and lightning in tow
and your tiny little life gets even smaller
as you heed the heavens' mighty show
i don't mean heaven like godlike
cuz the animal i am knows very well
that nature is our teacher and our mother
and god is just another
story that we tell

you're trying not to grasp
not to start grasping
at straws or sticks or stones
you're trying to learn to just sit inside your sadness
even if you're sitting there alone
cuz just like icarus ascending
never intending to look back
nature's law and your tragic flaw
are vying to send you flying into the arms of another venus fly trap

guzzle till the buzzing stops
guzzle till the buzzing stops
guzzle till the buzzing stops
