It seems like you just started noticing 
How noticeably bad things really are 
And then you walk past this couple arguing 
In a rolled up window parked car 

And all that gesticulated bitterness 
And all of that muffled yelling hell 
It's like it just starts wafting at you 
Like a big furry rat died inside of that wall kinda smell 

Bad dreams like this roll in like a cold front 
Thunderous thunder and lightning in tow 
And your tiny little life gets even smaller 
As you heed the heavens' mighty show 

And I don't mean heaven like godlike 
'Cause the animal I am knows very well 
That nature is our teacher and our mother 
And god is just another 
Story that we tell 

You're trying not to grasp 
Not to start grasping 
At straws or sticks or stones 
You're trying to learn to just sit inside your sadness 

Even if you're sitting there alone 
'Cause just like icarus ascending 
Never intending to look back 
Nature's law and your tragic flaw 

Send you flying into the arms of another Venus fly trap 
Guzzle till the buzzing stops 
Guzzle till the buzzing stops 
Guzzle till the buzzing stops
