lyrics

What monsters hide behind the corners of the night?
What monsters hide within the depths of our mind?
What evils will we have to face for this day?
What evils must we shield upon for our sake?
Well, we're treadin on & on for some kinda nerve,
for it to sport some kinda good to occur,
and yet we seem to dim out any outlet
that shines out the shadow of the silhouette.

We're chasin after sunsets, we're chasin after thrills.
We're chasin after pleasures and we're chasin after pills.
We're chasin ourselves, we're chasin ourselves,
we're chasin ourselves and it's servin us well.

Let us join & reconcile on the profligate,
let us void the ones who seem to pose as a threat.
Through tooth & nail we shall prevail, with precise detail,
and wipe out this abomination without any fail.
And for all of all our vanities, and all of all our flaws,
we fight, the battle rages on though often to our loss.
Yet we fight this war together, and surely when we win,
we'll rip ourselves to pieces so the fight can start again.

We're chasin after sunsets, we're chasin after thrills.
We're chasin after pleasures and we're chasin after pills.
We're chasin ourselves, we're chasin ourselves,
we're chasin ourselves and it's servin us well.

Hoosier rust-folk titty babies with guitars
