From the recording Until the Oceans Rise, Vol. 1
Everybody take a seat I lost the will to be discreet so I might say a thing or two.
If I offend let’s not pretend that we were friends ‘cause if it ends I do belive this one’s on you.
Looking back it’s easier to think of things as I prefer, but I don’t do that anymore.
My TV eyes have been hypnotized and sterilized so many times I can’t see what I was before.
So let’s make a run at denial, while keepin our feet on the ground. Take some advice for awhile like the old man said “get lost if you can’t get found.”
Yea when I was young and just a fool and holdin out in middle school I tried to keep my feelings hid.
Now I’m grown and on my own in crowded rooms I feel alone. Around adults I’m still a kid.
The Internet has all the knowledge and all the answers who needs college? I wish someone had set me straight.
It’s got everything I ever wanted all right there, but it’s so daunting all I do is masturbate.
I’ve fallen behind for so long I forgot what it meant to gain ground. But you can’t get it back ‘til it’s gone, like the old man said, “just get lost if you can’t get found.”
And everybody wants some love the perfect fit the perfect glove to cover us so no one sees.
There’s parts of me I keep inside when they creep out she doesn’t mind. That’s always been a mystery.
And everybody’s so unsure and insecure and immature or maybe I’m the only one.
Or maybe if we all got laid and smoked some weed and weren’t afraid we’d quit the wars and hide the guns.
So dig me a hole in the road, ‘cause I’m going deep underground. I’m taking a trip to the soul like the old man said “just get lost if you can’t get found.”
I been stalling for an hour or two to try and tell the truth to you, but the truth is that it’s hard to say.
The only thing I ever want is everything I haven’t got. I think you knew that anyway.
And all I need is you to care and raise me up from my despair. Maybe that’s all love can be? So in the end I guess what’s true is I’ll do anything for you if you do anything for me.
I kept it inside for so long I forgot what it meant to make sound. But you can’t get it back ‘til it’s gone like the old man said just get lost if you can’t get...
Get lost if you can’t get...
Get lost if you can’t GET FOUND...
