I've been feeling this way for longer than expected
feel my spine tighten up, wishing I could forget it.

I've seen brick walls tumble down,
so how are my feet safe here on the ground
unless I keep moving them,
so I'm gonna keep moving.

I've been feeling like this for longer than expected.
watch my time disappear, and I well with resentment.

I know feelings have no sound
driven like a stake into my brow
and no one can feel it
like the way I've been feeling.

but if I keep these feet moving throughout the week,
nothing can stop me.

I've been told I made a mistake
for standing up and doing things my own way
I lost my job, but I'm still breathing
nothing can stop me.

if I keep these feet moving throughout the week,
nothing can stop me.

"...channels musicians like Elliott Smith, Bright Eyes, and Sufjan Stevens, as on Hughes’ previous releases. But this record immediately calls to mind Pedro the Lion’s Control, with its deep-voiced chords and melodies, lyrical themes of corporate hell, and Hughes’ slurring voice. It could stand as a complimentary album to Control just as well as it stands on its own."
