Frightened Rabbit Things Lyrics

Well here’s the evidence of human existence

A splitting binbag next to two damp boxes

And I cannot find a name for them

They hardly show that I have lived

And the dust, it settles on these things

Displays my age again

Like a new skin made from old skin

That had barely been lived in

I didn’t need these things

I didn’t need them, oh

Pointless artifacts from

A mediocre past

So I shed my clothes, I shed my flesh

Down to the bone and burned the rest

I didn’t need these things

I didn’t need them, oh

Took them all to bits

Turned them outside in

And I left them on the floor

And ran for dear life through the door, oh

The useless objects, the gathered a storm of shit

A dim and silent shedful of your life’s supplies

When all you need’s a coffin and your Sunday best

To smarten up the end

And at the front gate, what a reward awaits

One bite of loaf from a holy ghost

An eternity of suffering

In the company of all those Christian men

I didn’t need these things

I didn’t need them, oh

Pointless artifacts

From a mediocre past

So I shed my clothes, I shed my flesh

Down to the bone and burned the rest

I didn’t need these things

I didn’t need them, oh

Took them all to bits

Turned them outside in

And I left them on the floor

And ran for dear life through the door, oh

Never need these things

I’ll never need them, oh

It’s just you I need

You’re my human heat

For the things are only things

And nothing brings me like you bring me oh

I’ll never need these things

I’ll never need them, oh

Never going back

So we can drop the past

And we’ll leave it on the floor

And run for dear life through the door, oh
