alt-J - Hand-Made Lyrics




Your sting red full stops my skin, dotted, scratch scratch, now I’m bleeding.
Legions upon legions of craftsmen handmade my feelings.
There’s bears in the wood and they’re out to get me,
And I’m safe from harm if I stay in this chalet.
And hold me tight and I’ll sink in,
I’m absorbed in your thinking,

But you don’t know.
You-ooooo...
But you don’t know.
You-ooooo...

Your sting red full stops my skin, dotted, scratch scratch, now I’m bleeding.
Legions upon legions of craftsmen handmade my feelings
For you-oooo...
For you-oooo..........

    I don't know if anyone will see this, and that's okay. This song was playing when I hit the halfway mark of the Pacific Crest Trail. I'm not athletic. I'm not outdoorsy. I didn't think I would even make it 100 miles. And then there I was, at mile 1325. I was so proud of myself. I miss that version of myself. The trail is over now, and I'm back home doing the same shit I was doing before. Working and going to school, trying to make a better life for myself. I fucking miss the trail. I miss the woman out there who had such a drive and passion for life. I'm incredibly depressed now. It feels like I'm only happy when I'm sleeping or drunk. I don't know. I guess I'm just trying to figure out life, but it's fucking hard.

    I remember being 13, on a camp, sitting on a beach and listening to this masterpiece,looking at my friend as the words 'you don't know' are being sang, they have no idea how being depressed feels

    just a weird memory of mine😂

    Your sting red full stops my skin, dotted, scratch scratch, now I'm bleeding.
    Legions upon legions of craftsmen handmade my feelings.
    There's bears in the wood and they're out to get me,
    And I'm safe from harm if I stay in this chalet.
    And hold me tight and I'll sink in,
    I'm absorbed in your thinking,

    But you don't know.
    You-ooooo...
    But you don't know.
    You-ooooo...

    Your sting red full stops my skin, dotted, scratch scratch, now I'm bleeding.
    Legions upon legions of craftsmen handmade my feelings
    For you-oooo...
    For you-oooo...
