explainer

lyrics

I want to go to a new city
with a new set of memories in me
I don't give a damn for the remainder
give me a reason to stay here
you want to go to a new place
where you can grow in new ways
and you don't have a problem anymore
I lace my boots but I can't seem to get out the door

I love the wind in my face
it whips against you so quick as you walk in place--
this is only a drill--look around
you're a part of an army--you enlisted to skip town
pull out a scarf from your hat
pull out a reason from your heart
I don't give a care for an explanation
I don't have the juice--I don't have the patience
I don't have

you want to go to a new place
you think you can grow with a new light on your old face
I don't give a damn for the remainder
your boundaries are bourgeois--you're an explainer
I want to feel where I am
I want to hold the feeling in my hand
and kiss its face with my fingers
I want to catch the winter light while it lingers
