lyrics

High highs
Lows lows
This might be desirable in a frequency response
Or the arc of a story

High highs
Low lows
God only knows
I could go easier on me
Smoothly now

High highs
Lows lows
Only I’m responsible
For this train come roller coaster
I am the conducter

Our bedsheets spread across two coasts
Up north and down low
Another polar bear’s ghost
You always say bye bye - bicoastal
The world said bye bye - bipolar
Goodbye polar bear

ugh

Up high the wind blows
The light sleeps
The dusk shows
The valley down below
In the shadow of the mountain

High highs
Low lows
God only knows I could go easier on me
Smoothly now
Smoothly now

High highs
Low lows
You know I wish it would go smoothly like a sine wave
Not jagged like a saw blade
I’m run ragged like an ice cap
In the flow of dollars and hand claps
Melt down to something raw and natural
Let me be a resource
Let me be the source

Bye bye bye coastline
The whole world’s bi bi bipolar
We wanna be bye bye bicoastal
The world said bye bye bye polar
Goodbye polar bear
