Lyrics from "Blip"
Take Me There
I wanna walk on a trail to nowhere with just my old Doc Martens and my yellow backpack with the patches I wanna hear just my steady breath against the scarf around my neck and maybe, some birds chirping here and there, through the air People keep telling me I am free, but I think I've gotta find that on my own So if that means calluses on my feet and branches in my hair, I don't care. Take me there, take me there, take me there. Yeah, I wanna walk all by my lonely old self Until the memories of you and I are finished bubblin' up and then I'll find some guy to hitch a ride with who can take us to his cabin on a mountaintop I'm gonna burn the pages of my journal as I go Cause baby I don't got room in this home on my back for you no more And I'll keep on walking, and walking, and walking until the distance turns you to ash in my palm I wanna live in a house where the blinds are never closed I want a place to call my home With shiny bowls of clementines and sunshine that bleed through the cracks of the white picket fence like angel beams like angel beams... I wanna drag myself up a hill in desert heat just to tumble down and find the strength to pull my body up to the peak!
I cannot find the music here inside the sirens that keep me up in the night I only see the broken bottles in the streets And the air is getting icy, skin is turning cold I cannot find my silence here except in the sweetness before the sunrise that's when I'm safe, my dear Under a tree, notebook on my knee the breeze and the birds singing me to peace! People on the streets, eyes down at their shoes in the leaves they keep their noses safe in their phones People on the streets, eyes down at their shoes in the leaves it's no wonder I don't feel so seen No wonder I don't feel at home I hear the music's going westward into Redwoods and Pike's Peak I hear it whistling through rickety shutters I hear it simmering
I've been scrapin' up the table scraps Just to find some golden nugs within the dust the little buzz only keeps me high for so long and now I hear the mountains call Oh, I think it's getting old I'm mixing up the streetlights in the alleys with the moon and oh, I miss laying in the dew, late on summer nights, IMAX of the stars and oh, have you ever felt so homesick for a place you've never known?
I used to have you and cigarettes But now it's just me, the black cat and peppermint tea that I always oversteep I used to have pills and now I have running up steep hills in the morning the root of this hunger, why can't somebody find me? and send warmth through these bones Cause I still sit here shivering Under the roof I've been told to call home life in the warzone I can still hear your gunshots ten feet from my bedroom door Can I have you? Cause you're better than nothing Even though your touch is so infecting the rules of my head never win over the needs of my tired heart I still sit here shivering Under the roof I've been told to call home life in the warzone I can still hear your gunshots ten feet from my bedroom door
With my earth hands on your heart you say I melt the pain away We float here in the dark I can't even see your face But I feel every pore Your whispers all that I know I have not been, you have not been to this space before You mend the isolation with every breath you exhale into me you mend the loneliness and every kiss feels like a dream every kiss feels like a dream
Push and Pull
Push and pull, push and pull, am I gonna run away? Push and pull, push and pull, am I gonna run into the rock steady canyon
where no one can touch me on the whizzing wheels of the purple bike who knows me better than any of you at this time, at this time
Well I'm just scared, I'm just scared that this will go to waste the fire we're brewing dear I watch it rise, I watch it rise, is it gonna char the soft aspens all around?
Well you've infiltrated the icicles inside my chest with the warmth in the palms of your hands and I cannot help but melt Take a swim, yeah take a swim darlin' follow me into the belly of this tidal wave at sea and see if you still like me even when my saltwater gets inside the cuts on your bare feet Well you've infiltrated the icicles inside my chest with the warmth in the palms of your hands and I cannot help but melt
Stop Checkin' the Weather
Stop checkin' the weather quit planning it out just go with the tides of the water you'll find your face in the reflection I promise you'll be fine, yes I promise you'll be fine You're a starry eyed girl now got your head by the roots of the trees but your eyes are in the clouds oh what could it mean? But oh! If you listen to the rhythm of your heart Oh, if you listen to the rhythm of your heart Oh, if you listen to the rhythm of your heart you'll learn to dance
I'm in the war zone, I'm in the war zone and I've given you all my ammunition I stood so tall in the centre of your open fire and I watched my armour get swallowed up by your midnight tides Can't we just rewind? Take back the molasses time? Remember, we walked through the valley streets with plenty of air between our bodies And I was so preciously careful then not to ramble on or brush your arm with my fingers I'm in the war zone, I'm in the war zone and I've given you all my ammunition Can't we just rewind? Take back the molasses time?
I pedal round endlessly the rush of these tires gaining speed I pedal north and lose all the sensation in my legs I travel far, but only my circles do remain And I wait for an answer, I hunger for a sign Reflection, reflection Won't you tell me I'm doing just fine? I pedal when it's too hot to be outside and I fix my sullen gaze on mountaintops so high anything to practice wiping this fools desire And I pedal at rush hour time and I hope that you see me, this I can't deny I hope you see me excelling at holding my head so goddamn high I pedal into the day's decline into the coos and whispers of the knee high grasses and it reels me right inside
Let's go to Chicago where strangers don't give a damn about our stories back home Let's catch a train this afternoon we'll get away, get away and enter another time zone And I'm packing light cause I don't want no remnants that smell like my bedroom Home, where will I find you? Will it be ink on my skin or the space inside of someone else's heart Won't you please please please let me know and with red eyes I'll take a midnight trip back to Chicago I'm changing my name, I'm changing my name and trying on an Australian accent for the heck of it for the heck of it! cause I can, cause I can Cause we're free here in this land of wind and jazz
Meet Me in the Middle
Here I stand in the garden of exposure Guess I'll bleed these sores out again just to catch your eye Just to catch the crumbs that might trickle from your palms as you walk in front of me I'm hungry, boy So meet me in the middle Well I'm done wasting time waiting on you to come get me high I'm sick of giving me away Oh evening once again I'm armour-less like a jellyfish I heave for deep ocean And wide eyed I flail all around this bedroom floor I gasp for your regulation So meet me in the middle or don't bother coming at all, don't bother coming at all Well I'm done wasting time waiting on you to come get me high I'm sick of giving me away
