Pheasant by Shook Ones
I'm making a life of waiting for the "never happen to me's" to happen to me.
And that means one thing:
Not a wink of sleep will take me through this drive tonight.
Alright, I guess I'll make friends with the miles, But just so you know,
This is not a one-way road, and rest assured
I take much more after my dad and I do of yours.
So please sleep better than me tonight.
You see, this road exists solely to
Tear me in half.
I hope the saying goes; "to be confused is to know"
'Cause I got a ringing in one ear
And reason whispering in the other ear.
And I am worried, because every year the whisper
Tries to overtake the ringing in my other ear
What do I do when it becomes a yell? A Yell!
I've got a ringing in one
I've got reason whispering in one
I've got a ringing in one ear
And one part fear and one part doubt
With two parts craving for the road
That proves this real world so wrong
Let's meditate on a mess of stones
A mass of arteries I don't know
The net of this land weave us in.
The "not so sure" found something in not knowing
Just so you know this is not resolved
I hope the saying goes "to be confused is to know"
Cause I got a ringing in one year,
And home sounds so damn good
