To fade into the gentle embrace of vinyl crackle. To admit the silly things aloud. I don’t know what Frank is talking about in the second verse. To breath in a prayer and release a hymn. To understand all songs become hymns with a chin pointed skyward. To realize gods are wherever we feel the urge to give needlessly. To give yourself breathlessly to a bridge. To yell like no one can hear you but you need everybody to hear you. That’s church. I really don’t get what Frank is saying in the second verse yet I know all the words. That’s church too. I/I/I know you gotta leave/leave/leave. Give up.
