about

Outtake from the Grand Bargain! LP sessions

lyrics

Driven to distraction
One bird in the palm
Solitary action
Island in the calm
Artificial lightning
Neon isn’t real
Cut off the appendage
No matter how it feels

Here’s your mission for today
Reverse direction in every way
Fight the urge
Fight the pain
Fight the impulse to escape

Searching for an answer
There's no question here
Looks like someone woke up
On the wrong side of the mirror
Visualize yourself exactly where you are
Get out of your head and
Back into the world

No more fiction
No more lies
Look the bullshit in the eyes
Make a break
Take your time
Get yourself back out of line

This is not a sickness
This is not a cure
You are not a victim
This is how things work
Building up resistance
Is the only way
Time to pull the blinder
Off your gaping face

Here's your lesson for today
There's a lot more you can take
Fight the urge
Fight the pain
Fight the impulse to escape

No more fiction
No more lies
Look the bullshit in the eyes
Make a break
Take your time
Get yourself back out of line
