about

Philosophy of life from the 20-year-old brain I used to think was pretty exceptional. I guess nothing's changed much.

lyrics

Babies

Don't be afraid
The world was made
For babies just like we are
Because we don't stop needing
‘Til we're done bleeding
Like ashes in a jar
I don't want to close
Like a wilted rose
Or fade ‘til I don't know near from far

I don't want to rot away
I'll never be too old to play

Don't need to die
Before we fly
To heaven, that's where we go
Whenever we're so happy
We can't stop laughing
‘Til tears begin to flow
It seems we're designed
Just to lose our minds
Well, who needs a mind when you've got soul?

Sometimes a nightmare
This world of dreams
Whirls in illusion
Real as it seems
But there's a question
I have to say
Where do we wake up
As the world's fading away?

I don't want to die too long
I'd rather end like a song
