Kurt Vile – Bassackwards lyrics
I was on the beach but I was thinking about the bay
Got to the bay but by then I was far away
I was on the ground but looking straight into the sun
But the sun went down and I couldn't find another one
For awhile
For because it was an all-burning feeling in my chest
To fill the void
Of a long night unwatched by, well, the sun
Until the morn
Until when, well, the sun's reborn
And so am I
From all the scorn buried deep
Within the psyche of my soul
I was standing down but I was also on the run
In my mind

I was on the radio talking with a friend of mine
There was no format because well, we like it like that
He was out of his mind and I was way out of mine
Then everything went backwards
With words coming out
Bassackwards
And I appreciate him to the utmost degree

I was on the beach but I was thinking about the bay
Got to the bay but by then I was far away
I was on the ground but looking straight into the sun
But the sun went down and I couldn't find another one
For a while
To fill the void
Until the morn
Then everything went backwards
I mean, phrases flying out
Bassackwards

I was on the moon but more so, I was in the grass
So I was chilling out but with a very drifting mind
So I was on the ground circa planet earth
But outta sorts but I snapped back, baby
Just in time to jot it down and come around
It's always to see you
And I came around
It's always to see you here when I come around
Or when I'm plain come, comin' down

Then everything goes backwards
I mean, everything moving out
Then everything goes backwards
I mean, everything oozing out
Bassackwards
(strummin a chet atkins)

I was standing up
But you know I hate to still stoop you down
To my level

Bassackwards
And I appreciate her to the utmost degree

Then everything went backwards
I mean, words coming out
Bassackwards

Just the way things is these days
Just the way they come out these days
Just the way things come out

To the utmost degree
