lyrics

Hellock’s Brimbles like this place
between the transitions in the air marks
And it’s kind of like a gap year
in an existential ruin
So, yeah, it’s kind of metaphysical
and the oldest bears are the rugs

When you’re there you forget all about
dumb things like fact-based idioms
And you only think about nets
to swallow whole
You focus more on how we trick our
hearts all the time

Just admit it

And how far your limbs
go back to hug

And all the ways to die which means
all the things to love

And reaching for that gold-eyed chipmunk
and the moment
that is never there anymore

Is what we use to rise up

Rise up
Rise up
Rise up

Reach for the underwater hug

The weirdest thing that happens here though
is that I love it here

It’s what we’ve always wanted
And it’s free
And you do, oh you do
You get a spirit animal

Ohmmm
A weema-wamma
Ohmmm
A weema-wamma
Ohmm
weema wamma

And it so could be real.
And it so could be real.
And all the darkness I can stand.

All the darkness I can stand.
All the darkness I can stand.
All the darkness I can stand.

Hellock’s Brimbles like this place
Between the transitions
