lyrics

Quoting Thoreau

Wild man on the street
Looking at you he’s looking at me
Burning the summer sun
Well I’ve made love to everyone
Only if I were rolled
Into an ocean endlessly
Maybe you’d understand
That you can’t take this life from me

The pressure to build
The pressure to grow
Speaking to me
Is like quoting Thoreau
And every complaint
Deserves an excuse
And I wane

So leave me on the street
Taking shit from everyone
Burn it into their heads
Well I’ve made love to everyone
Only if I were rolled
Into an ocean endlessly
Maybe you’d understand
That you can’t take this life from me

The pressure to build
The pressure to go
And speaking to me
Is like quoting Thoreau
And every complaint
Deserves an excuse
And I wane

The sea carries a storm
Bending the roar
I want you to shake like me
Bury the storm
Serving what I build
Form me for what you need
Break me for eternity
The pressure to build
Go ahead and build it again

Wild man on the street
Looking at, he’s looking at me
Burn it into their heads
Well I’ve made love to everyone
Only if I were rolled
Into an ocean endlessly
