The Mountain Goats - Tribe of the Horned Heart - 03.24.12

You knew that they were out there by the signs they left behind

On old abandoned buildings, just some X’s and some lines

Half circles in the concrete, crescents in the snow

You could find the little beacons almost everywhere you’d go

Only people who were sick enough

Knew how to read them right

I got sick when I was seventeen

And I’d hunt down signs all night


You’d listen for the voices in the generator’s hum

Hang out behind the power plant and wait for them to come

Hints about their mission in the rustling of the surf

But no secrets can be kept from you if your faith is strong enough

Only people who’ve been sick too long

Can hold on to the hope

That some friendly ghost is listening to the prayers they learned to say

At the slack end of the rope

I don’t generally reblog my own stuff ‘n’ stuff but I consider this one of my better lyrics and I don’t think it’s widely known because I only played it like twice, so I’m doin the thing I don’t generally do

Needed to reblog this song because 

1. It’s a rare one, so I could easily lose track of it.
2. This one speaks to me very much at this moment, and what it says is “you’ve never been truly alone, and you won’t be defeated if you remember that.”

Holy shit I’ve had this blog for three years and nothing bad has happened because of it. Time to get dangerous.

i miss trimet. it was always on time.

Fun fact: This was taken while I was in high school. I am one of the 14 or so pushing that bus. They called us to school (brown building on the left), and then cancelled as soon as I got there. Having nothing better to do, and seeing a bunch of cars getting stuck going up Powell blvd, some other students and I spent a couple hours pushing cars up the street and out of the snow. I was wearing converse, and my feet were completely soaked through within five minutes. It was fun, and it was one of three times in high school where I wasn’t an ass.
