lyrics

I will always choose survival
As every effort works to purge my soul off of god’s green earth
I will meet them with an eyeroll
Like a child

I will build a boat, I'll learn to sail
Nevermind my utter lack of motor skills
A set of stumbling sea legs
It's been nice to know the ocean
Only as far as I've been rowing it from home

I'll walk another mile
A disciple, a dupe, and I've worn holes through my brand name shoes
I'll idle as entitled
As my idols

I will build a cabin in the woods
And die by my ineptitude with earthly things
I'll hunt and dig
It's been nice to know the forest
Only as far as I've been foraging from home

Death already listens
He’s got the out of print editions
So all this preciousness can stop
It’s casting reels and skipping rocks
And crowing about how many hops
And talk of all the fish you caught
From a long since dried up pond

I will build a life I will be good
I'll will away the wickedness
That I've retained, ingrained, embraced, and entertained
I will build a life I will be good
I will will away the wickedness of existential impotence
I will build a life I will be good
I will will away the wickedness of existential impotence
I will build a life I will be good
