The Ballad of the Anxious Decoder

from by Winterpills

supported by


vodka this happiness, i'm drunk as a swan
too little oxygen here, too much dawn.
i will drive down this boulevard
pretty flowers in my hair
i am hiding from the hologram
of your all-knowing stare
your all-knowing stare.

sandbag this sloppiness,
this poorly timed flood.
no one's excited for your artificial blood.
i am living your imperfect dream
i'm a hobo at the feast
hide the bride's eyes from my dead moonbeam
my unfinished masterpiece,
unfinished masterpiece. ooh.

i am the anxious decoder.
i am the moonshine diplomat.
