    seems like you just started noticing
    how noticeably bad things really are
    and then you walk past this couple arguing
    in a rolled up window parked car
    an all that gesticulated bitterness
    an alla that muffled yelling hell
    it's like it just starts wafting at you
    like a big furry rat died inside of that wall kinda smell

    bad dreams like this roll in like a cold front
    thunderous thunder and lightning in tow
    and your tiny little life gets even smaller
    as you heed the heavens' mighty show
    i don't mean heaven like godlike
    cuz the animal i am knows very well
    that nature is our teacher and our mother
    and god is just another
    story that we tell

    you're trying not to grasp
    not to start grasping
    at straws or sticks or stones
    you're trying to learn to just sit inside your sadness
    even if you're sitting there alone
    cuz just like icarus ascending
    never intending to look back
    nature's law and your tragic flaw
    are vying to send you flying into the arms of another venus fly trap

    guzzle till the buzzing stops
    guzzle till the buzzing stops
    guzzle till the buzzing stops
