02 pushing a dead man too far - vampire deer

December 3, 2016 3:15 AM

a lament about work

got to take it from the beginning
in a rotten mood today
doesn't seem like the life i wanted
how did it get this way?
pushing a dead man too far

it's the money that you wanted
we'll put lots of it on your grave
excuse me if i walk away now
it's my life i'm trying to save

Oh that skip in the beat is really sinister and makes me feel that time cannot be trusted. Interesting subject you use this disconcerting effect to illuminate. Time in the short, medium, and long ranges all covered.

When I was a kid, I thought the Butthole Surfers were the scariest thing around. This is like a nightmare version of the Buttholes. Trip hop for a bad trip.

Dragging the limp limb, eyes shedding/glitching. Grim and bleak and massively weighted. Guitar solo is so well structured and tight. Intense!
