about

This rubber band art was made at Sebastian's kitchen table during the pre-production discussion of this song.

lyrics

For something horrible, you got famous
But you got famous just the same
You'd never felt so small, turns out we're all alone
You couldn't have learned it better
Because you never would have learned
It's time to go fishing to take
Your sadness and sit it by the salt-lake
To hook a tear for bait and cast it down
Into the murky mystery
And hope a fish will find it
And drink the unknown out of you
It's hard to show your face when you don't know your face
Sometimes a fall from grace is an ace in the hole
It's time to go fishing...
It's time to go fishing to take
Your sadness and sit it by the salt-lake
To hook a tear for bait and cast it down
Into the murky mystery
And hope a fish will find it
And drink the unknown out of you
Swallow it down, make you understand
Swallow it down, make you understand
Swallow it down, make you understand
