lyrics

i marked my height on the wall
a line of chalk to show I'm small
a second line to chart the paradigm
the rumblings in the hall

at any second I could die
lose my ears and nose and eyes
but then again I'm not sure
what my senses are even for

take off your coat
remove your sneakers
and put your head
against the speakers
turn up the sound
let it wash over you
you are alone
and not much else is true

I'm a modern man, I read the news
clean my shirts and shine my shoes
just in case by stroke of luck
someone tells me that they're stuck

and I can regale them with a tale
of having lived and lost and failed
make them strong cause before long
i'll be turning to this song

take off your coat
remove your sneakers
and put your head
against the speakers
turn up the sound
let it wash over you
you are alive
and not much else is true

crashed my car on the road
driving back home in the snow
hit a mailbox, stuck a street sign
I guess I wasn't meant to drive

in that very second I nearly died
and lost my ears and nose and eyes
and in that instance I was sure
what my senses were for

take off your coat
remove your sneakers
and put your head
against the speakers
turn up the sound
let it wash over you
you are alive
and not much else is true
