about

This song is about growing up.

I originally came to the guys with just a piano part and some lyrics I really believed in. For the most part, it was just vocals and piano until the bridge where everyone came in suddenly and we got it the first go around. But then we went back and decided to have the bass and drums come in going out of the first chorus. It was the first time we had ever had piano and coincidentally the first time we ever didn't have guitar as the main focus.
Everyone was on the same page that night, the same line of the same page, even. We didn't have much time in the studio and opted to record it completely live rather than track by track. The recording you hear was probably only the forth of fifth time we had ever played it through. By far one of the most memorable moments of this band.

lyrics

At sixty minutes, my words became sour, and fell at my feet.
At fifty-nine, or somewhere close to an hour, I lost all my teeth.
From shoving my face at 58

But there will be a mountain I will run to, there will be a day in which I conclude, and I wont think in the present tense, no I ain't thinking straight, no I ain't thinking bent.

This feeling I have, it grows on me still, but it grosses you out, I can tell by your eyes.
There's no denying it, it's kind of repulsive, but maybe you aren't looking at it right.
'Cause I ain't cain, no I ain't able, to say in other words, or lay it on the table, so take me as I am, or just not at all, I'm not one who easily falls.

But there will be a mountain I will run to, there will be a day in which I conclude, and I wont think in the present tense, no I ain't thinking straight, no I ain't thinking bent.

It's like I'm a batter who's missed all his swings, for some weird reason, my team hates me, and I'm just now catching on, I'm just now realizing, there is so much that I haven't been realizing.
And if this is all I get, then I don't want anymore, cause you are all that I incessantly adore, and I'm really not pissed, I'm just shocked that I've missed all my cues, and all I want is another try.

There will be a mountain I will run to, there will be a day in which I conclude, and I wont think in the present tense, no I ain't thinking straight, no I ain't thinking bent.
