I don't bother anyone
Nervous when I stand
Choking on the circumstance
Only smoking secondhand
Cut us open, spread us out
Dry us in the sand
Lay the fibers side-by-side
And you'll begin to understand
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me.
...coming for me
I don't bother anyone
Never make demands
Choking on the circumstance
Self-sabotage is a sweet romance
Seems like all I'm worth is what
I'm able to withstand
Sooner I can realize
That pain is just a middle man.
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me.
I see no volunteers
to co-sign on my fears
I'll sign on the line
I'm gonna change my circumstance
I know I need to move right now
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me.
(only smoking secondhand)
Like a little splinter
buried in your skin
Someone else can carve it out
But when you've got the pin
It hurts a little less
and you can even push it further in
When your body's screaming out
Trust your mind's listening.
Like a silhouette that you can barely see
As the shadow casts upon the ground
where you'll eventually
lay forever, but the day goes on
the sun moves behind you
You get taller, bolder, stronger,
and the rear-view only blinds you

  • After read all the Clancy’s letter again, I realized Keons is about comfort zone. The way you feel when u just keeping things happen and accepted that such as “I don’t bother anyone nervous when I stand” or “I know it’s over I was born a choker” or if you compare with heavydirtysoul is the same situation but in different point of view “I’m smoke them out the basement” versus “Only smokin’ secondhand”. Anyway, Keons makes Clancy feels safe, the same way we used to feel when we don’t fight back and suffer inside because of that. Maybe I’m crazy, but I really feel that vibe.

  • Views have slowed to a trickle. I wonder if the label pulled promotion because of lackluster reviews? I personally love it, but it feels like a decision was made to not push this song because they’re scared it will diminish sales of the album when it drops.

    Mikael LedinMikael LedinHace 4 horas
    • Tyler had that tiny dragon figurine in his studio. He used it as an imagination activator, pondering on it until it got bigger, moved around, started flying and essentially made the confining walls of his studio disappear. The pandemic made them SCALE back their plans (no live concerts), essentially ISOLATING them from their fan base, whom they consider integral to the success of their live performances. The dragon became a symbol of how imagination can be used to destroy the idea that life has become scaled back and isolated. SCALED AND ICY.

  • I’d like to put in my theory, though it’s unlikely. I’ve seen a lot of theories about anti capitalism but what if it’s anti socialism? In the breakdown or whatever he talks about how it hurts worse when someone else puts the needle in and but it hurts a little less when you got the pin and you can push it further in when your body’s screamin out trust your mind listenin. Couldn’t that be talking about government and the way they insist on holding the pin and removing the splinter themselves instead of allowing you to remove it yourself? And the body is you being harmed by an over reach but your mind is your mind knows to see it? Just a thought
