carry on, don't you move a muscle for me
carry on in your pattern
carry on, it's alright if you ignore me now
you got it figured out but you are

buried on bodies of the ones before you
maybe on lungs still moving
tarry on if you're happy living with the sound
of sinking in the ground
the white oak

grab the neighbors and the lovers
tell them that we're jumping town
don't you worry about the others
they're already too far down
and we're leaving all the water
because it's just a bunch of smoke
the moss, the worms, the shade are gone at the white oak

terrified of a wasted reputation
verified by your rearing
purify all your thoughts of affirmation's doubt
let's try to talk this out
don't you know

you decide what is running through your body
demoralized is your hunger
glorify all the ropes that pull your body now
they want to get you out to the white oak
