Superchunk - 1,000 Pounds (Duck Kee Style) Lyrics




You finally pulled back when the world pulled your hair
Alone in the room with a question hangin'
You left with your hand in the air, and it's still there

At your age life moves so fast
Twelve years old, skinny legs, built to come in last
Had a mirror that would never lie
When you're doomed it never pays to try

And every time I saw you
You were trying so hard to explain
Your broadcast failure
Like the plastic boat spinning down the drain

But you came through, you came through
When nobody expected you to
You came through, you came through
With all those narrowed eyes upon you
You came through, you came through

Now you wish you weighed a thousand pounds
So you could crush those bullies and demons down
From your seat at the back of the bus
Still waving back at us

Every time I saw you
You were trying so hard to explain
Your broadcast failure
Like a plastic boat spinning down to drain

But you came through, you came through
When nobody expected you to
You came through, you came through
With all those narrowed eyes upon you
You came through, you came through
