Fade With Me

from A Scientific Search by Erik Ritland

/

about

Inspired by: a song that's been rattling in my head for 15+ years, Over the Rhine, the Book of Hebrews, the sacrament of reconciliation, wasting time, economics, Scott Adams, desolation, being bullied into silence.

lyrics

I’m getting so high
But I’m lower than the angels
And that’s the thought I always regret
I confess what I don’t want to consider
But it’s best that I don’t forget

Fade with me

All I have is a lot of wasted time
Already spinning in my grave
I try to think big
And I know I am better
Than the sunk cost I can no longer save

Fade with me

What I think I can say no longer
As if I’ve ever had the nerve
Put me in chains so I know how it feels
To be shot down like I deserve

Fade with me
