Bad Books – Myths Made Plain lyrics
If you're wondering how we landed here
You were watching the waves and drinking beer

You don't even remember standing up
Truly I don't either

At some point you waded to your waist
As you slipped further out the stakes were raised

Finally you were surrounded and for what
A water darker and deeper

In 1997 I became myself
And 20 minutes later I began to melt

The cycle leads to and the course of time
The shifting definitions that comprise a life

The people I become and the people I don't recognize

If you're wondering who arranged the mess
Some exceptions were made I grant, I guess

While we all let the peak of the parade
The underbelly went lethal

In 2007 tried to build a bridge
Between know how I was living and how I could live

Tricked myself into thinking I'd done enough
Once I got across I didn't blow it up

Yeah I closed some lanes, all it really takes is one

Open name to tear apart all your works
So fine you are, delicate unachieve all your half philosophy

Style points, blind belief a whirling perpetuity

The ocean warm that knows you did the same before

So in 2017 we did away with facts
All negotiation with a battle axe

The gruesome ideology is center shame
American identity was laid to waste

We're black lit and exposed
Sugar stripped and it's made clean

The people I become
The people I can't replicate
