Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Avett, Oh My

July 26, 2009

I’ve taken the red pill and am plunging headlong into the Avett Brothers. Emotionalism is stunning from the start, and it keeps getting better. Weight of Lies in particular pierces the fog like a laser. I feel like posting it as a banner over my blog, if not my life. The best lines:

I once heard the worst thing
A man can do is draw a hungry crowd
Tell everyone his name, pride, and confidence
But leaving out his doubt

I’m not sure I bought those words
When I was young I knew most everything
These words have never met as much to anyone
As they now mean to me

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town
Cause nothing happens here that doesn’t happen there
So when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from
Cause lies don’t need an aeroplane to chase you down
