Could you add some somewhere to me?”

To tell you who I am.

Well you hear this voice right now

Well that’s pretty much all I am.”

who love me for the man I’ve become…

To give a man a second start

I promise things won’t end the same.”

And it’s evil how it’s got me

And every day is worse

Is it art like I was hoping now?”

the life she had.

Blissful and sad.

The days before the day we die.”

collections of words

The losers make facts

by the things they have heard

And I find myself

trying hard to defend them.”

But I am stuck in here all paralyzed.”

“Forever I will move like the world that turns

beneath me

And when I lose my direction, I’ll look up to the


And when the black cloak drags upon the ground

I’ll be ready to surrender, and remember

Well we’re all in this together

If I live the life I’m given, I won’t be scared to

don’t go revengin’ in my name

One person dead from such is plenty

No need to go get locked away.”

Tiptoe across the floor

Keep your clothes on

I got all that I can take

Teach me how to use

The love that people say you made.”

I’m no different

We love to talk on things

We don’t know about.”

“Well I’ve been locking myself up in my house for some time now

Reading and writing and reading and thinking

and searching for reasons and missing the seasons

The Autumn, the Spring, the Summer, the snow

The record will stop and the record will go

Latches latched the windows down,

the dog coming in and the dog going out

Up with caffeine and down with the shot

Constantly worried about what I’ve got

Distracted by work but I can’t make it stop

and my confidence on and my confidence off

And I sink to the bottom I rise to the top

and I think to myself that I do this a lot

World outside just goes it goes it goes it goes it goes it goes…”

-The Avett Brothers, Talk on Indolence

“Don’t say it’s over

‘Cause that’s the worst news I

could hear I swear that I will

Do my best to be here

just the way you like it

Even though it’s hard to hide

Push my feelings all aside

I will rearrange my plans and

change for you.”

-The Avett Brothers, If it’s the Beaches

“But when I think

I just might get something

Out of this

My parents taught me to learn

When I miss

Just do your best

Just do your best.”

-The Avett Brothers, When I drink
