lyrics

I can’t bend the rules when I’m just too sleepy
What if it’s all I have ever needed
I’ll let go of the gun and go home for the season
Abandon your thoughts and rejoice

Spring has awoken
Not the way I wanted, not the way I wanted
Read the mail or align with my allies
Spreading out like rabbits, I could leave the planet
If I left how could I learn from pain or strangle pride through apathy
Could you pull me from my stupor
Grace me with indifference toward my own kind

Do you want to be a part of it?
There could be land beyond this forest

Were you made to grow and follow
Telos, tell us, thirst for quietude
Slip the dogs or strain yourself holding them back
Was it all in vain, is it how I’m made
If I left how could I learn from pain or strangle pride through apathy
Could you pull me from my stupor
Grace me with indifference toward my own kind

Do you want to be a part of it?
There could be land beyond this forest

Do you want to be a part of the universe? Do you?
Will you take control of your own experience?

Peace-giving fruit or ethereal prison
Ambition extinguishes when you have risen
Wash clean the rapturous taste of the lotus
We’ll never get home if we keep losing focus…

Spring has come and left without warning
Not the way I wanted, not the way I wanted
Read the mail, aligned with my allies
Life becomes oppressive, weakening the pensive
When I’m gone I’ll feel no longer pain nor pride through mindful apathy
You have pulled me from my stupor
Graced me with indifference toward my own mind

Peace-giving fruit or ethereal prison
Ambition extinguishes when you have risen
Summon the courage to lose all your focus and reach for the rapturous taste of the lotus
Why join the best of a sullen collective when given a world where you don’t need perspective
Break into one, counting backwards to seven
We’ll drop off the planet or fly towards the heavens
We’ll hold hands and leave everlasting impressions
Or turn on the hunger that heightened our brow
But we’ll never get home if we keep eating flowers
