about

a pretty lament on the zombifying effect of chasing a dream - all mandolins and monsters

lyrics

Somebody once told you
Your head is full of monsters
You trust them at your peril
The best that you can do is to run away
As fast as you can go

It doesn't matter what you've been thinking
It doesn't matter what you've been going through
I know
You're just keeping the dead alive
Keeping the dead alive

Villains used to tell me
I'll never amount to nothing
I'll only end up hurting myself
I can't predict the future and anyway
What the hell am I trying to prove?

It doesn't matter what you've been feeling
It doesn't matter what you've been going through
I know
We're just keeping the dead alive
Keeping the dead alive

Nobody believes you
Those monsters are so beautiful
You trust them 'cause you need them
The only thing to do is to run to them
Just as fast as you can go
