lyrics

got your resignation
you had problems left to solve
guess you grew impatient
with how slowly we evolve
making calculations
mixing chemicals and things
trying to persuade
your two arms to turn to wings

and i tried explaining
that you really have to wait
and there is no changing,
that’s just how we operate.

heard your days in shambles
you fell down and you got hurt
taking soil samples
wondering what is in the dirt
that makes you feel so heavy
what magnetic forces steer
you so each and every
step just leads you back here

and i ask politely
can i get a drink for you?
and you smile slightly
say i’m only passing through
only passing through.

got your resignation
you had problems left to solve
guess you grew impatient
with how slowly we evolve
making calculations
mixing chemicals and things
trying to persuade
your two arms to turn to wings

heard you’re through with practice
heard you’re done dealing with doubt
got your world atlas
looking for a way out
where’s the greyhound going?
what’s the airline’s cheapest rate?
or does someone know when
that next shuttle leaves for space?

but each time you try to
you can’t find your car keys
so the summer drives you
so the summer drives you
let the summer drive you
crazy

so if you’re feeling stifled
and you’re down on your knees
and life’s too true to life
and it’s too much to beleieve
it only takes a knife
and the intention to bleed
the resolution to leave
the resignation to go
i think it’s time you quit
i think it’s time you quit
quitting.
