Bright Eyes Ship In A Bottle Lyrics

Last updated: 07/02/2011 11:00:00 AM

I wanna be the surgeon that cuts you open
And fixes all of life's mistakes
I wanna be the house that you were raised in
The only place that you feel safe
I wanna be your shower in the morning
That wakes you up and makes you clean
I know I'm just the weather against your window
As you sleep through a winter's dream
Something's churning the earth
Something's stirring the sky.
Every color at once in a column of light.
Bacteria breeds on a microscope slide
The worm in my heart is the apple of your eye.
Don't adore what is impossible
We have built this ship in a wine bottle
If we knew how it worked we would have to grow old.
Something's eating at you,
Wakes you up in the night
If you're digging the past
Who knows what you'll find
Read the newspaper print off the microfiche slide
And you're holding your breath
For the rest of your life
Don't you love what is intangible
I have built this ship in a wine bottle
But if you knew who I was
You would never grow old

This band, this man, this song, this feeling.
How can i express in words the reaction or possibly even the impact this has had on my life, my brain, my mind frame.

It is as if i have realised that the auto pilot ghost that automatically runs my brain, my decisions, my thoughts is just a hooded figure that i can take over and i can become aware of this auto-complete side that has managed to have programmed me enough to scare me. But how can i be frightened by this reality as it comes to light?? Now i can de-bug my computer brain in an intelligent way that opens doors and thinks outside the box that we have been pushed into.

Okay this sounds crazy, but this is the kind of intense shit that goes through my brain when listening to sweet music and Conor Oberst sweet voice.
Or am i just stoned?
