Adam Duritz is a fucking genius

February 10th, 2007

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

If this song doesn’t hit you where you live, you’re dead.

Step out the front door like a ghost into a fog
where no one notices the contrast of white on white
And in between the moon and you
angels get a better view of the crumbling difference between wrong and right
Well I walk in the air between the rain through myself and back again where
I don’t know
Maria says she’s dying
Through the door I hear her crying why
I don’t know

Round here
We always stand up straight
Round here
Something radiates

Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she’d like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
And she walked along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she’s walking on a wire in a circus

She parks her car outside of my house and takes her clothes off
Says she’s close to understanding Jesus
And she knows she’s more than just a little misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal when she’s nervous

Round here
We’re carving out our names
Round here
We all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
Round here
She’s slipping through my hands

Sleeping children better run like the wind
Out of the lightning dream
Mama’s little baby better get herself in
Out of the lightning

She says it’s only in my head
She says shh
I know
It’s only in my head

But the girl on the car in the parking lot says man you should try to take a shot
Can’t you see my walls are crumbling
And she looks up at the building
Says she’s thinking of jumping
She says she’s tired of life
She must be tired of something
Round here
She’s always on my mind
Round here
Hey man
We got lots of time
Round here we’re never sent to bed early
Man nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very very
Very very late
I can’t see nothing
Around here
You catch me if I’m falling
You catch me if I’m falling
Will you catch me ‘cuz I’m falling down on here
I said I’m under the gun
Round here
Oh man I said I’m under the gun
Around here
And I can’t see nothing
Around here
