precisely what would you like to do?
everything that i ever wanted to
the outer space brigade

it feels as i’ve grown older
the world around grows colder
the pills
warm and happy

my young shadow is holding me down, underwater
my young shadow is cutting the breaks, on my future
don't feel right, don't feel right, to me

a fast food cup thrown from a pickup truck
inconsiderate reckless selfish little
the bugs
i feel no love

if the new disease claims me
i’ll watch your stocks go crazy
the chills
warm and happy

my young shadow is holding me down underwater
my young shadow is cutting the breaks on my future
don’t feel right, don’t feel right, to me

our silhouettes, they stretch, under street lamps
our bicycle reflectors, they burn in the headlights
my young shadow is holding me down
