lyrics

i am not one body in agreement with itself
my arms, my legs, my head and heart
they all need something else
and i'm just tired
my ears just ring

"well hit those drums a little bit harder, boy"
let's spit and moan, and make some noise
let's drink it in and sweat it out
my body's built to make this sound

come on

hold me for a second 'cause tomorrow i swear i'm gone
like the smoke that fills our lungs
deep in my chest or in a song
it just won't fade
scars and remains

but i will sweep them up and toss them out
let fires roar and thunder shout
my crippled hands and bloody mouth
are strong enough to make this sound

you and me are not wandering this world alone
we're out at sea, but this ship is heading home
and i just want to believe that there is good in you and good in me
and our crooked hunchback youth is growing straighter as we speak

come on

i chased a lion through the snow and froze down in a pit
but i'm no strain of benaiah
and she's no perfect fit
and that's alright
it's no big thing

well, i sat beauty down upon my knee
for fifteen crazy crooked weeks
this bitter tasted behind my teeth
is worth the time, it's what i need

come on

you and me are not wandering this world alone
we're out at sea, but this ship is heading home
and i just want to believe that there is good in you and good in me
and our crooked hunchback youth is growing straighter as we speak

(i'll always be gold for you, so i'll always be gold to you)
