Interlude I, by Alt-J

"Interlude 1 talks about a young woman who dreams desperately of a carefree life - with no hiccups, trauma or obstacles. She prays to only ever be happy and hidden from worry and her cries are answered by barking dogs." - alt-J on Soundcloud.

She she she she only ever ver ver ver ver
Walks to to count count her steps
Eighteen teen strides and she stops to abide
By the law that she herself has set
That eighteen steps is one complete set
And before the next nine right and nine left
She looks up up at the blue
And whispers to all of the above
Don’t let me drown, don’t breathe alone
No kicks no pangs no broken bones
Never let me sink
Always feel at home
No sticks no shanks and no stones
Never leave it too late
Always enjoy the taste
Of the great great great grey world of hearts
As all dogs everywhere bark bark bark bark
It’s worth knowing
Like all good fruit, the balance of life is in the ripe and ruined.
