Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage

"Depression! Despair!"

I haven’t got the leeway to be falling too behind
And there's a lot of little warnings in the corners of my mind
And there’s a lot of things that need to work with no margin of errors
So the only thing I see ahead are entropy and terror
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
And the list of your convictions is an old outdated loop
And you see the other angle where your concepts all look stupid
And you see your broken your broken certainties from the oldest to the newest
And the things that are the worst are all the things that seem the truest
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)

The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark
The rocks are always flying and breaking apart
(The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark)
(The rocks are always flying and breaking apart)

And relationships are worthless if it’s not like his and hers
And plus my body isn’t perfect and each day it’s getting worse
And now the culture these kids are into is not made for you is it
And the stuff that you loved is worse each time you revisit
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)

And the garbage piles higher and the relatives are older
And the papers to be filed are exploding from the folder
And you thought that being shy meant a sweet guy who needs work
But you're quiet and awkward and you're also still a j*rk
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)

The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark
The rocks are always flying and breaking apart
(The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark)
(The rocks are always flying and breaking apart)

And it’s been a crazy highway to get here from where you started
And the endings out of reach and then you're broke or broken-hearted
Like a flower losing petals as the challenge gets more devious
You always have to settle for a little less than previous
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)

And the things you want to do are not the way you would excel
And when all factors in your favor have wavered straight to hell
Until the place you held to dig your heels in and adhere the least
Is sliding helpless to the cliff as if the safety brake released
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)

The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark
The rocks are always flying and breaking apart
(The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark)
(The rocks are always flying and breaking apart)

And it even isn’t obvious to take it on the chin
When all the ocean is anonymously shaking in the wind
Into a million new directions every time you get a bearin'
Pulling you and your reflection underwater in the air
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)

Horrible comparisons of history unfolded
If miraculous humanity as really if they told it
If we are defiantly proceeding through a maze we feared and hated
I am just deciding on a meeting point in case we are separated
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)
(Depression! Despair! I’ll see you there)

The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark
The rocks are always flying and breaking apart
(The sun is always shining on rocks in the dark)
(The rocks are always flying and breaking apart)
