Hoosiers, The - A Sadness Runs Through Him Lyrics




People are puppets held together with string
There's a beautiful sadness that runs through him
As he asked me to pray to the God he doesn't believe in

Time and again boys are raised to be men
Impatient they start, fearful they end
But here was a man mourning tomorrow
He drank, but finally drowned in his sorrow

He could not break surface tension
He looked in the wrong place for redemption
Don't look at me with those eyes
I tried to un-heave the ties
Turn back the time that drew him
But he couldn't be saved
A sadness runs through him
Through him

Time and again boys are raised to be men
Impatient they start, fearful they end
But here was a man mourning tomorrow
Who drank, but finally drowned in his sorrow

He could not break surface tension
He looked in the wrong place for redemption
Don't look at me with those eyes
I tried to un-heave the ties
Turn back the time that drew him
But he couldn't be saved
A sadness runs through him
Through him

Don't look
Don't look
Don't don't

Don't look at me with those eyes
I tried to un-heave the ties
Turn back the time that drew him
But he couldn't be saved
No he couldn't be saved
A sadness runs through him
A sadness runs through him
A sadness runs through him
A sadness runs through him
A sadness runs through him

Hoosiers, The A Sadness Runs Through Him Comments
  1. kirusmuffin the annoying one

    Damn, this song definitely fits Chris Chan!

  2. Snow Diggy

    I first heard this as an animatic of Gravity Falls. Best show, best song!

  3. Spoiled Jam

    bro my characters are screeching. poor baby con.

  4. Bendy and the Subs Machine

    wait the Hoosiers made this too? It’s so different from a lot of their other songs.

  5. Izz eo

    Dose 0:52 give anyone else “that” feeling?

  6. WingTurtle

    First one of your songs I heard this is a freaking masterpiece (found it through an animatic)

  7. char ko

    2020 everyone!

  8. GermanSoup12

    Beautiful. I love this song so much. First ever song from the Hoosiers I have heard. I came here half way through a Gravity Falls video so glad it introduced me to this song. 🤍🤍🤍

  9. The Sweet Smell Of Fuck You

    After reading 'Don't Tell The Nazis' this song hits so much different and now I almost start crying. I think of Boyrs and Dolik and how they both began happy and ended fearfully. They feared the next day, knowing death could find them. And although they tried to act brave, they knew they couldn't be save.

  10. Mister Goldfish

    good stuff love discovering new artists

  11. Artimiller 961

    Why does this not have 1 billion views it’s the best song in the world.

  12. jennifer besario

    Tom would listen this when he was in the future rn

  13. Meera-chan

    ok, but it gives me sally face vibes
    it's like sal talking w/ travis but travis was actually religious though..

  14. Alicia Mesina

    best song!

  15. 「Cøła Man 」

    *Time and again, Boys raised to be Men.*
    *Impatient they start, Fearful I am But,*
    *There was a man, Mourning Tomorrow*
    *He Drank, and finally drowned in his Sorrow.*

  16. F r ð s t y S n Ø ̲ ̲w̲

    SO LOOK AT ME WITH THOSE EYES!

  17. Project m&r X

    Honestly this makes me think about a girl walking in an empty space suddenly seeing the people who she is befriend with all together on a string. As she walks further she some making more connections and some breaking. As this makes her sad she starts to pull some people by their string trying to help them get on the right path. Then one friend of hers realizes what she is doing. He tries to help her but he is stuck to his own strings. Something like friendship is a complicated network and could trap you easily or bring you to the wrong path she says. Still trying to keep everyone together. All on her own.

  18. Audrey Woods

    Oh my God, what is this??? It's beautiful 🥺🥺

  19. CookieMintzz Love

    Anyone here because of the snowtuft warriors map?

    People are puppets held together with string
    There's a beautiful sadness that runs through him
    As he asked me to pray to the God he doesn't believe in

    Time and again boys are raised to be men
    Impatient they start, fearful they end
    But here was a man mourning tomorrow
    He drank, but finally drowned in his sorrow

    He could not break surface tension
    He looked in the wrong place for redemption
    Don't look at me with those eyes
    I tried to unheave the ties
    Turn back the time that drew him
    But he couldn't be saved
    A sadness runs through him 
    Through him

    Time and again boys are raised to be men
    Impatient they start, fearful they end
    But here was a man mourning tomorrow 
    Who drank, but finally drowned in his sorrow

    He could not break surface tension
    He looked in the wrong place for redemption
    Don't look at me with those eyes 
    I tried to unheave the ties 
    Turn back the time that drew him
    But he couldn't be saved
    A sadness runs through him 
    Through him

    Don't look
    Don't look
    Don't don't

    Don't look at me with those eyes
    I tried to unheave the ties 
    Turn back the time that drew him
    But he couldn't be saved 
    No he couldn't be saved 
    A sadness runs through him 
    A sadness runs through him 
    A sadness runs through him 
    A sadness runs through him 
    A sadness runs through him

  48. Erik Samøssen

    Though very depressing, the song is also very beautiful. Currently my favourite song I think

    ReedAckerman

    It's very melancholic.

  49. KumPupp

  58. Daniel Lopez

    Does anyone know any songs like this? I'm kinda after the dark theme/sound of it

    Petrichorus

    @Matt from Wii Sports  I like all of those songs but none of them are really similar to this one. The closest I'd say would maybe be Saint Bernard because of the tone but 😬

    Leslie Henderson

    Satern is also good. Although it has a lot of instrumental.

    bemotivated

    Daniel Lopez it’s not the same but you might want to try soldier poet King

    Gentleman Owl

    Murders and The Mind Electric by Miracle Musical is good ^^

    Anyone watching this in 3214? Anyone?

  62. quicwaterr

    Oh wow, i didn't realize this was by them.

    Guess I like them more than I knew

  63. FungalCrayon

    See, the first time I heard this song I couldn't understand it. Now that I have the lyrics, I realize this is about suicide, isn't it?

  64. KitiNeko

    So, ive been subbed to you guys for like over 3-4 years i guess, and thought the group might get a larger quantity in subs which i see 30k soon ;-; i wished 1mil as you guys deserve it so much for all thease cool and enjoyable songs.

  65. Lightning Jolt

    This song makes me so emotional aaaaaa

  66. Matmun

    I'm not sure if this is how it was meant to sound, but I relate this song to a friend of mine who commit suicide, and I couldn't do anything to stop them, and I was the only person who knew. The guilt I felt for years and years was immeasurable, I still can't get over it, it drove me to believe I was useless and I shouldn't get to attached to anything, because everything ends. I'm doing much better now, but it still stays in a corner of my mind, the fear of the same thing repeating itself.

    Len Dora

    This may not be much, but i hope you keep doing well. It may be difficult, but you can do it! :) Just stay strong

    Matmun

    @Len Dora thank you so much!

    Len Dora

    @Matmun You are very muvh welcome. :)

    Satan Is Here!

    I know a stranger saying "don't feel bad" won't change anything, but it wasn't your fault. They had those feelings, they made the choice, we can't "fix" people like that, we can try, but that's about it. I hope you're doing better, I haven't experienced such a thing before, my mom has talked to me about her thoughts of suicide but nothing has happened, so I don't know how it feels. It sounds terrible. Sending hugs.

  68. Angelsdevil

    I really need sheet music for this song, but I can't find it anywhere. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Trey Knott

    sadly you may have to find someone well verse in music theory and a good ear and have them go through the song note for note. it's a phenomenal song. maybe there is a program that will listen to songs and record it and take note of the signature

    LPS LunaKat uwu

    Trey Knott
    yeah, i would love to hear this on violin, but sadly, nobody has made sheet music for it yet :T

    SunFlow3r

    stop talking about supernatural, this came out before it did.

    Kinovate

    @SunFlow3r 🖕

    Teardine

    ​@SunFlow3r It doesn't matter if this song came out before Supernatural, there allowed to talk about the show if they want too. Stop being an asshole.

    Kinovate

    @SunFlow3r also actually you are not correct, this song came out in 2007 while supernatural came out in 2005.
