alt-J - Interlude I (Ripe & Ruin) Lyrics

She she she she only ever-ver-ver-ver walks to to count count her steps,
Eighteen-teen strides and she stops to abide
By the law that she herself has set

That eighteen steps is one complete set,
And before the next nine right and nine left
She looks up up at the blue
And whispers to all of the above,

"Don't let me drown, don't breathe alone,
No kicks no pangs no broken bones.
Never let me sink, always feel at home,
No sticks no shanks and no stones.
Never leave it too late, always enjoy the taste
Of the great great great grey world of hearts."

As all dogs everywhere bark bark bark bark,
"It's worth knowing
Like all good fruit the balance of life is in the ripe and ruin."

    sad to see this song isn't that popular because it's really good! always give me chills and that without a melody

  4. Frédéric Deloffre

    Alt J is awesome, most people know it, but most people don t know this song, while this is actually the best creation that could ever be made in the Alt J style, what a chef d'oeuvre; well fucking done, I wisper this when I feel down, I sing it when I feel good, thank you for this piece of art.
