By the way she looked,
I should have calmed down.
just like yesterday, I told you I would stay
In time I’d find a little way to your heart, down to the general store for nothing specific, gonna wash my bones in the Atlantic shore - only for you and me
Oh, there’s a river that winds on forever
I’m gonna see where it leads
Oh, there’s a mountain that no man has mounted
I’m gonna stand on the peak
This is the kind of song I imagine playing in an individual’s head as their car flips over endlessly, seemingly in slow motion.
During that infinitely finite amount of time you’re given, when all of your memories play at an immeasurable pace yet you see all of them as if they are in “real time”, and in the few seconds you have you’re able to contemplate a supertemporal amount of thoughts—some important, others arbitrary, all ultimately irrelevant—like if you left the stove on, or if you really love them, or if you should have been less afraid of the ball in little league like your father instructed, or if, maybe, had you done or not done that one thing, then maybe things would be different, or if you’d lived a good life—this last thought always seeming to take a backseat to the others.
I got a number written down on the back of my hand but I can’t read it
I got a notice in my pocket that I don’t understand I think I need it
I got a watch on my wrist but it just won’t tick and I don’t know
I got a key that I swallowed yeah it’s part of the trick
I got gold

One of the most soothing sounds my ears have ever met. I could listen to this track forever.
Would we ever really care the world had ended

And then he would look at those starlings
Together they swoop down as one
He’d read in that dizzy ellipsis
Done, done, done.
