Ordinary Life

from by Jeremy Blake

supported by


Welcome to new king
These brand new times
You can have anything
If you can do the crime

So many wonders
If you only knew
How to break apart
How to break it down
How to break on through

Is started with a feeling
In the back of your mind
Just a stupid idea
You couldn't leave behind

Is there any wonder
In the day to day
Can we find a way to
Get through
This ordinary life

The morning sunrise

Just might
Make it to our eyes

Is it too late
To start this over

Just take my hand
We'll make it through this ordinary life

So you set off with a new head
A new set of plans
Every moment was a miracle
In your hands

You danced with the thunder
And you saw the light
In the supermart
In the produce aisle
In the middle of the night

Yeah you said they were crazy
And they might be right
But you showed me something
That was worth the fight

It's the little things that kill you
But it's the same that saves

And that's what will get us through this
Ordinary life

Black holes

Too high
For consecration

We won't wait
For evolution

Take me hand we'll
Make it through this ordinary life

Coulomb's law
We drift apart

True love
This god forsaken heart

Through it all
The worry and the strife

Take my hand we'll
Make it through this
Ordinary life

A failsafe
A new direction

The true perfection

A moment shared
Natural selection

Take my hand we'll
Make it through this
Ordinary life
