Antlers, The - Stairs To The Attic Lyrics




I decided on that evening
That I was through with sitting still
I stood up and started moving
With a childlike fascination
For those doors that don't have locks
And the stairways that were blocked
So I dug through the obstruction
Put my fist around the railing
And each step was far apart
And far away from steps before it
And the air was getting thinner
Until I couldn't breathe at all
And if I happened to look behind me
There were miles and miles of stairs
Enough so I couldn't see the doorway
But I knew that it was there
And on the last step I was dizzy
Because there were stairs in all directions
But I found another door
And through the door there was the attic
Without old clothes
Without a ceiling
Everything had opened wide
Into the jaws of something bigger
And suddenly I saw that I was
Upstairs and outside and freezing on the roof
Finally it had found me
The answer, the feeling, and the truth:

That I'm small
That I'm small
That I'm small
I'm smaller than the smallest fireball

    Beauty...

  4. Tetrapharmakon

    Listening to this song, I feel incredibly at peace and absolutly sad at the same time

  5. mata schmata

    when I listen to this song I can feel the my vision zooming out, out of me, out of the earth, out of our solar system, out of our galaxy, and it just keeps going and going, and it never ever stops. it's like we don't even exist at all. And it doesn't make me feel insignificant, it makes me feel like... like, I'm happy that I'm so small because it means I get to experience all this beauty and all this wonder on such a large scale. I can appreciate the smallest grain of sand. And when I look up at the stars I'm overwhelmed with joy and hope.

    I decided on that evening 
    That I was through with sitting still
    I stood up and started moving 
    With a childlike fascination
    For those doors that don't have locks
    And the stairways that were blocked
    So I dug through the obstruction
    Put my fist around the railing
    And each step was far apart
    And far away from steps before it
    And the air was getting thinner
    Until I couldn't breathe at all
    And if I happened to look behind me
    There were miles and miles of stairs
    Enough so I couldn't see the doorway
    But I knew that it was there
    And on the last step I was dizzy
    Because there were stairs in all directions
    But I found another door
    And through the door there was the attic
    Without old clothes
    Without a ceiling

    That I'm small
    That I'm small
    I'm smaller than the smallest fireball

  17. Mr. Mambo

    i know what you mean man..but if anyone comments on a band like the antlers you can bet they're not one of the idiots that troll youtube daily

  18. Mr. Mambo

    Socratic irony - When someone pretends to be naive about a certain subject, and uses his questions about it to point out a flaw in the established belief. This is often used on the TV show South Park, where the children often ask questions about a situation until the folly in a parent's decision becomes clear.

  19. Aphelion Neutrino

  20. Mr. Mambo
