lyrics

let me set the scene
in lieu of the corkboard; the photos connected by string
i'll explain
But give me a sec for finessing the mess in my brain
it's developing news
it's a skin being shed you could say i outgrew
these street lamps glow with an iridescent green
only seen by the shadows in the know

and it rattles my bones
I guess you'd call it an undertone
why'd you think yr flyers all got taken down
from every telephone pole and breezeway across this
town and it rattles my bones
we're all avoiding the undertone
slow to arrive put your life on silent
it's dark outside

and i certainly don't need any of you
You can find a better hobby this one’s long in the tooth
no, i certainly don't need any of your
assistance. No, you’d fuck it off.
yeah, i'm sure.

From a bench where i like to sit
as a place, i won't argue, the spot’s pretty pleasant
but it plans. yeah, it plans
and every so often you can see the outlines of its plans
i've got this spiral bound notebook
i've kept it since i was a kid
Where i write down anything that doesn't add up
so i can show it to god in the end and say “i know whatcha did”

ooh it rattles my bones
I guess you'd call it an undertone
why'd you think your car got towed while you were inside paying out your ticket
to the ones who brought you inside
ooh, don't it rattle your bones
you learned to live with the undertone
there's sides to the world that you'd never be shown
until you shoot a bullet through the globe

and i certainly don't need any of you
There are things i’m absolutely sure about without proof
No, i certainly don’t need any of your opinions
So stifle the cough
Weather’s gone dismal like it or not
Leave me to me and leave me to rot
I’m a lot, i’m a lot

Oo, don’t it rattle your bones
Now that you notice the undertone
I can’t be alone, i can’t be alone
Now, Tell me you notice the undertone

Hope that you’re resting your bones
I’ve been mistaking the undertone
Outrun, overblown,
I mistook a day for an undertone
and i told ya
