This is the closing track to my favorite Bright Eyes album, Cassadaga (AKA Conor Oberst and the Psychedelic Country Orchestra). Some gorgeous lyrics in this one.

I keep floating down the river but the ocean never comes
Since the operation I heard you're breathing just for one
Now everything is imaginary, especially what you love
You left another message, said it's done
It's done
When I hear beautiful music it's always from another time
Old friends I never visit, I remember what they're like
Standing on a doorstep full of nervous butterflies
Waiting to be asked to come inside
Just come inside
But I keep going out
I can't sleep next to a stranger when I'm coming down
It's 8 a.m., my heart is beating too loud
Too loud
Don't be so amazing or I'll miss you too much
I felt something that I had never touched
Everything gets smaller now the further that I go
Towards the mouth and the reunion of the known and the unknown
Consider yourself lucky if you think of it as home
You can move mountains with your misery if you don't
If you don't
It comes to me in fragments, even those still split in two
Under the eaves of that old lime tree I stood examining the fruit
Some were ripe and some were rotten, I felt nauseous with the truth
There will never be a time more opportune
So I just won't be late
The window closes, shocks roll over in a tidal wave
And all the color drains out of the frame
So pleased with a daydream that now living is no good
I took off my shoes and walked into the woods
I felt lost and found with every step I took

@Titus Andronicus has a super wide range of tastes and it's interesting. I would guess you both enjoy and agrees with Ayn Rand (not to my taste but I can't really blame anyone who likes her books because they are accomplishments). Then also like half of the Bright Eyes songs I post so you seem familiar? Just interesting because Obersr includes a lot of Vonnegut references and is a well known super lefty. Most liberals don't like Bright Eyes just because they find the music boring or bad or whatever but you see to be on board despite the politics which is interesting.

I don't know why but this song and video always creeped on me a bit.
