Walk It Back

The National

Sleep Well Beast


I'm always thinking about useless things
I'm always checking out
I'm always mothering myself to bits
I'm always checking out

Forget it, nothing I change changes anything
I won't let it, I won't let it ruin my hair

I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off, don't wanna fuck it up
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off, don't wanna fuck up the place

I better walk it back, walk it back
Oh, I better walk it back, walk it back
walk it back, walk it back

I try to save it for a rainy day
It's raining all the time
Until everything is less insane
I'm mixing weed with wine

Forget it, nothing I change changes anything
I won't let it, I won't let it ruin my hair

I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off, don't wanna fuck it up
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off, don't wanna fuck it up
I only take up a little of the collapsing space
I better cut this off, don't wanna fuck up the place

I better walk it back, walk it back
Oh, I better walk it back, walk it back
walk it back, walk it back
Oh, I better walk it back, walk it back
walk it back, walk it back
Oh, I better walk it back, walk it back
walk it back, walk it back

"People like you are still living
in what we call the reality-based community
You believe that solutions
emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality
That's not the way the world really works anymore
We're an empire now, and when we act
we create our own reality
And while you are studying that reality
judiciously, as you will
we'll act again, creating other new realities
which you can study too
and that's how things will sort out
We're history's actors, and you, all of you
will be left to just study what we do

Apparently that was written on a whiteboard
with a red sharpie in the Roosevelt bedroom
sometime around Christmas 2007. Yeah, so I can't stay... "

I can't stay
And I can't come back
I'll just keep awake
And I won't react
I'll walk through Lawrencetown
Along the tracks
My own body in my arms
But I won't collapse
So don't go dark on me
It's all alright
If I'm gonna get back to you someday
I'll need your light
