Beck – Youthless lyrics

A bottomless pit
That we've been
Climbing from
Just to get
On level ground
Shake your seasick
Legs around
Dead of winter
In a logo town
Signs of life
Are soft
And flickering

Need a bed
To lay my body down
Deadweight to carry down
Some static
Is lulling me to sleep

Hang your clothes
On a chain link fence
In a junkyard say amen
Your mouth is full
Of wordless hymns
And run-on sentences

And they're helpless
And forgetting
In the background
Holding nothing
And they're youthless
And pretending
With their bare hands
Holding nothing

A million horses
Dragging down
A monolith
With these trademarks
So bereaved
Tied my leg
To a barricade
With a plastic
Hand grenade
They tried
To turn emotion
Into noise

Need a teleprompter
For my life
Need a pipeline
To the night
My body
Can't get no relief

And this life it
Goes by fast
You're treading
Water in the past
Trying to re-animate
That you
Can't understand

And they're helpless
And forgetting
In the background
Saying nothing
And he's youthless
And forgetting
With his bare hands
Touching nothing

And he's helpless
And forgetting
In the background
Saying nothing
And he's youthless
And pretending
With his bare hands
Holding nothing
