lyrics

I can try to be so smart
Like a wall of MOCA art
And all the works of Decartes
But nothing fits my empty heart

The body knows but the brain gets in the way

I always thought I’d end up alone
The lights are off when I get home
It feels good to always be right
White lies from the boy who can’t cry

The body knows but the brain gets in the way

Just slow down
And close your eyes
Feel the sand
Realize
We’re quick to cut
It’s quick to mend
Tie a string
To everything within

The body knows but the brain gets in the way
The body knows but the brain gets in the way
