  • I am a wall of sand and stone
    And you, you're some kind of ivy
    I'm trying to hold as best as I can
    As best as I can

    But I'm a disaster
    I could not be burning faster

    I stick my arms into webs
    I take my meals with weirdos
    And play with my rocket ships

    And all the while you, you
    Are so composed
    So composed
    So composed

    You are the most gracious thing I know
    Touched by crooking flowers
    Touched by snow, oh

    And I put my rockets away
    I think you're fantastic
    I'll put my rockets away
    I know that you care
    I'll put my rockets away
    And you
    I'll put my rockets away
    Are a house of skin and hair

    I've been running off of fumes again
    I've been running off my mouth
    I've been running in the hours
    Between midnight and dawn
    In the direction of the moon
    With the impression that's the way
    The way to find your house

    So, hey, I will build your bastion
    And hey, how long can you put up with these questions?
    When you got nowhere to go except
    Into the terrible air?

    And I put my rocket away
    I think you're fantastic
    I'll put my rocket away
    I know that you care
    I'll put my rockets away
    And you
    I'll put my rockets away
    Are a house of skin and hair

    Erring on the side of culture, apparently past
    Come down from the good rack crystal glass

    'Cause I, I'm a wall of sand and stone
    And you, you're some kind of ivy I'm trying to hold
    As best as I can Writer/s: Arlen Thompson, Dan Boeckner, Dante Decaro, Spencer Kyle Krug
