Bright Eyes lyrics : "I Believe In Symmetry"

Some plans were made and rice was thrown
A house was built, a baby born
How time can move both fast and slow

Amazes me
And so I raise my glass to symmetry
To the second hand and its accuracy

To the actual size of everything
The desert is the sand
You can't hold it in your hand

It won't bow to your demands
There's no difference you can make
There's no difference you can make

And if it seems like an accident
A collage of senselessness
You aren't looking hard enough

I wasn't looking hard enough

An argument for consciousness

The instinct of the blind insect
Who makes love to the flower bed
And dies in the first freeze

Oh I want to learn such simple things
No politics, no history
Till what I want and what I need

Can finally be the same

I just got myself to blame

Is everything up to fate
When there's choices I could make
When there's choices I could make

Yeah, my heart needs a polygraph
Always so eager to pack my bags
When I really wanna stay

When I really wanna stay

When I wanna stay (x4)


The arc of time, the stench of sex
The innocence you can't protect

Each quarter note, each marble step
Walk up and down that lonely treble clef
Each wanting the next one

Each wanting the next one to arrive
Each wanting the next one
Each wanting the next one to arrive


An argument for consciousness
The instinct of the blind insect

Who never thinks not to accept its fate
That's fate, that's happiness and death
You get to the next one

You get to the next on down the line
You get to the next one
You get to the next on down the line


The remedy of longing that
Distills each dream and the song I had

By morning watered down again
On silver stars I wish and wish and wish


Move on to the next one
Move on to the next one down the line
Move on to the next one

Move on to the next one down the line

You get to the next one

You get to the next on down the line
You get to the next one
You get to the next on down the line
