about

I'm not a hardcore The Shins fan (sorry, Natalie Portman!), but I did play the shit out of the album 'Wincing The Night Away' for a good solid year or so when it came out. The lyrics to this song still act as my rallying call when I'm doubting myself or feeling down. James Mercer is a lyrical genius.

lyrics

Go without
'Til the need seeps in
You're no animal
Collect your novel petals for the stem

And glow
Glow
Melt and flow
Eviscerate your fragile frame
And spill it out in the ragged floor
A thousand different versions of yourself

And if the old guard still offend
They got nothing left on which you depend
So enlist every ounce
Of your bright blood
And off with their heads
Jump from the hook
You're not obliged to swallow anything you despise
See, those unrelenting buzzards want your life

And they got no right
As sure as you have eyes
They got no right

Just put yourself in my new shoes
And see that I do what I do
Because the old guard still offend
They've got nothing left on which we depend
So enlist every ounce
Of your bright blood
And off with their heads
Jump from the hook
You're not obliged
To swallow anything you despise
