Built To Spill - Broken Chairs Lyrics




Broken chairs your body conforms to
Out beyond the quieted garden
You can bring the man form into trust
Through the holes in my everydayness

Lends sustenance where starvation's necessary
'Cause my head's a dictionary
Of long spring days and the speech of crows
Who themselves are mirrors of apprehension in the fallen sun

Where starvation's necessary
'Cause my head's a dictionary
Of long spring days and the speech of crows
Who themselves are mirrors of apprehension in the fallen sun

Who themselves are mirrors of apprehension in the fallen sun

Well, alright
You can make it stay
Well, alright
Well, alright

Well, alright
You can make it stay
Well, alright
Alright

Alright
Well, alright
Alright
Alright

    Shortest 8+ min song ever

  3. Sad Sappy Sucker

    Is it just me or does this song remind me of Modest Mouse :/

    ryan c

    John Wick bts were inspirations for Isaac brock

    Alex Fuller

    I initially discovered Built To Spill because I was seeking bands similar to Modest Mouse and they were one of the closest I could find to the parts of MM that I loved the most.

  4. nameless identity

    this song does not feel like it's 8 minutes long ...

    Broken chairs your body conforms to
    Out beyond the quieted garden
    You can bring the man form into trust
    Through the holes in my everydayness
    Lends sustenance where starvation's necessary
    Cause my head's a dictionary
    Of long spring days and the speech of crows
    Who themselves are mirrors of apprehensions
    In the fallen sun

    Well, alright
    You can make it stay
    Well, alright

    Broken chairs your body conforms to

    Lends sustenance where starvation's necessary
    Cause my head's a dictionary
    Of long spring days and the speech of crows
    Who themselves are mirrors of apprehensions
    In the fallen sun

    Well, alright
    You can make it stay
    Well, alright

  10. Johan Gustafsson

    Best song ever!!! Fuck Beatles,Stones, this is the real deal.. period!

  11. Justin Bogenschutz

    Many moons ago, got a free ticket to a BTS show, the ended with this song, loved how it was epically non ending, with each one leaving the stage about a few minutes apart leaving their instruments conducting a symphony of feedback with finally just the drumming playing out till the end.  I am more of a metal and Industrial music fan, but became an instant fan of theirs after the show.

  12. Marcos Moraes

    A música mais massa dos caras, escutei muito essa música em 2004, bull to spill da hora

  13. BetaRiffs

    I love whistling to this song

  14. Cole Peterson

    This song is the fucking best. Period. End of story. There are other songs that are as good as this in the world, but nothing can be better.

  15. zigotina

    best fucking song in the world

    Louis Ralph

    It actually probably is

  16. Andrew

  18. Belakor Venator

    Oh how this song gives me flashbacks of the greatest kind

    Silly Billy Gumdrops

    Belakor Venator

    @Drummer Boy96 As a matter of fact...

    Silly Billy Gumdrops

    +Chris Kelley wish I could find some :/

    Silly Billy Gumdrops

    +Chris Kelley you took too much man, too much, too much

    Silly Billy Gumdrops

    just started getting in this band my favorite band is modest mouse so that's the reason... ran out of shit to listen to by them but they are so good not as angry as modest

  19. fork Yes

    This is amazing! They are amazing!

  20. Allison Davis

    this is def one of the best overall. agreed

  21. Cam C

    Favorite Built to Spill song by far. 

  22. Meeki

    this is the sort of the song you imagine rocking out to infront of tens of thousands of people. i wish i could sing like doug. And the break of the solo is absolutely amazing. no band can top a built to spill solo. ever.

    Rodrigo Lima

    you can sing like doug if you imagine hard enough you're singing like him. works for me

  23. dorknutz

    This song is retardulously epic.

  24. Leslie Ashburn

    this was written by my ex husband uhuru scott christian black. rip.

    flukeDC4

    This song and these words have been there for me through a lot of good and bad times... i know it sounds cheesy, but i consider it a really good friend.

    stephen monaghan

    Leslie Ashburn such an incredibly beautiful song, Rest In Peace

  25. Keith Darling

    The best at that fuzzy weepy wall-of-guitars... after Dinosaur Jr. :P

  26. mara owens

    doug did this as a memorial to our dear friend uhuru. means a lot to me that he asked for and then used this poem. breaks my heart, but it's brilliant.

  27. Derplodocus

    god this song is more amazing... everytime.

  28. rastusist

    Built to spill is the ultimate band. There is no point in listing to any other band. If you have gotten this far, just consider this the end point and listen to beethoven and bach from now on. This is the final resolution of the trend started by the velvet underground in the 60s.

  29. Raijinvince

    @ericambrosecoon Wikipedia tells us that All songs [on Keep It Like a Secret] written by Built to Spill except "Broken Chairs," which includes lyrics by the poet Uhuru Black

  30. Newsome19

    2 people must have sat on a couple of broken chairs....

  31. ericambrosecoon

    This is actually a cover. It says so in the liner notes. I'm searching to find out who it's by...

    Draxx Them Sklounst

    It's not a cover. The lyrics are by a poet.

  32. xXxFaLLeNxShaDoWxXx

    Well, Alright.

  33. Ashur

    Jesus fucking shit cocks. This is incredible.

  34. kleiva72

    Build to Spill, i migliori!
    Great band!

  35. Lasse Beck Frost

    @DUBtheTIGER Right on fella!

  36. nocaster4747

    Perfect from Now On lived up to the title and will continued to do so :)

  37. SC Smith

    @quinnh77 wtf are you smoking? Or were you just trying to be "that hipster guy who heard this band before everyone else"? They only had 2 albums out by 95 and the first one isn't even anything special. There's Nothing Wrong With Love is great but this band hadn't even come into their own in 95. That's like saying the Beatles weren't as good after 1964.

    And please don't take this as me being a dick, I'm just saying that you should take another look at this band. Listen to "Perfect From Now On"

  38. JW pepper

    no, this IS there best song. its beatle like, with the whistle and the piano in the back.

  39. Luke Oilboy

    love em! all though there are quality's shared by "built and modest mouse" each are great, unique and different. don't put them in the same pie! although they may blend well! cheers!

  40. Jesse Kyrkkö

    This song is one of the best built to spill songs ever!!!

  41. GlitcHead

    love the bass on this one. also, love everything else on this one. :)

  42. Quinn Howard

    meh, they are not as good as I remember them in 95

    The Legendary E

    Quinn Howard your music taste must have went down the shitter then

  43. john dunson

    Thank you for adding all the built to spill.
