I Believe In Symmetry Lyrics - Bright Eyes

Review The Song (3)



Some plans were made and rice was thrown
A house was built, a baby born
How time can move both fast and slow
Amazes me
And so I raise my glass to symmetry
To the second hand and its accuracy
To the actual size of everything
The desert is the sand
You can't hold it in your hand
It won't bow to your demands
There's no difference you can make
There's no difference you can make
And if it seems like an accident
A collage of senselessness
You weren't looking hard enough
I wasn't looking hard enough at it

An argument for consciousness
The instinct of the blind insect
Who makes love to the flower bed
And dies in the first freeze
Oh I want to learn such simple things
No politics, no history
Till what I want and what I need
Can finally be the same

I just got myself to blame
Leave everything up to fate
When there's choices I could make
When there's choices I could make
And now my heart needs a polygraph
Always so eager to pack my bags
When I really wanna stay
When I really wanna stay

When I wanna stay [4x]

The arc of time, the stench of sex
The innocence you can't protect
Each quarter note, each marble step
Walk up and down that lonely treble clef
Each wanting the next one
Each wanting the next one to arrive
Each wanting the next one
Each wanting the next one to arrive

An argument for consciousness
The instinct of the blind insect
Who never thinks
Not to accept its fate, that's faith
There is happiness in death
You get to the next one
You get to the next one down the line
You get to the next one
You get to the next one down the line

The levity of longing that
Distills each dream inside my head
By morning watered down forget
On silver stars I wish and wish and wish

From one to the next one
From one to the next right down the line
From one to the next one
From one to the next right down the line

You get to the next one
You get to the next one down the line
You get to the next one
You get to the next one down the line

conor did an amazing job on this song. i love everything he does and i must confess i am a die hard bright eyes fan i own every single song conor has out. i like to think conors lyrics keep me alive on the days i want to be the least. his voice is entirely illuminating.

Due to this song, and Bright Eyes in general, I got a tattoo that represents my belief in symmetry and balance. It's simply two lines all the way around my arm. People are quite confused by it but that's okay.

I can't stop listening to this song...as a dedicated fan, I've heard most of the songs written by the lovely Conor Oberst for Bright Eyes, but I'd count this one as one of my all-time favorites.

Besides the brilliant lyrics we've all come to expect from conor, the instrumentations ad to the theme of everything continuing in life whether you want it to or not, and whether you're prepared or not. This song also paints a picture of a lot of great imagery (esp. in verses 2&5). The song has a real "soundtrack of your life" feel and I'd recommend it to anyone. You'll be happy you gave it a listen.
