lyrics

I use my strength so little now
How come every sinew aches?
The hardest thing I’ll do today is drag myself awake
I’ve got a moment here suspended
Between two endless voids
I’m going to bloody up my knuckles
I’m going to raise my voice to happiness
I bought myself some shoes
I walked them round the town
A size or two too small for me
They suit me to the ground
With a burning in my heel and a crushing of my toes
To take them off is pure relief
My soul it warmly glows with happiness
They say the first is born who will live a thousand years
In convenience and comfort with no lack and little fear
I’m guessing that isn’t me
And I suppose that’s just as well
For a life with nothing wanting sounds to me like a little hell of happiness
You need to want it less, happiness
Just a little less, happiness.
