I wrote my name on a piece of paper
just to give it a sense of life
the paper blew away in a cold, strong wind
nothing's worse than your own advice

I chased the paper for awhile
through the grass and down into the street
where it was taken by a stream of yesterday's wetness
snow isn't so mighty when there's heat

why was I so invested in the etching?
I'm here, I'm breathing, I can smell
when a tree falls in the woods there's no recording
when you die there's no one you can tell

2 + 2 may equal 4
but 4 is not a resting place
you'll claw your way to other suns
and end up lost in outer space

2 + 2 may equal 8
to deny that claim is not my place
does clawing your way to other sums
help you forget the vastness of space?


the echo bends, the echo knows the layout
of my house the echo climbs the stairs
it's the voice reverberating through my headphones
through all my blood and all my little hairs

through all my blood and all my little hairs
