“Sleeping Lessons” by The Shins

“And if the old guards 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.”

Go without ’til the need seeps in your love anymore
Collect your novel petals for the stem

and flow
Eviscerate your fragile frame and spill it out on the ragged floor
A thousand different versions of yourself

So enlist every ounce of your bright blood
And off with their heads

Jump from the hook

See, those unrepenting 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 guards still offend (petty guards and shiny hands)
They 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, you despise, you despise, you despise, you despise

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
