about

"The dramatic finale 'Falling Into Quicksand' is a feast of words that wouldn’t be out of place at the end of Sergeant Pepper (really) — it's the best track on a consistently good album that stands out from the pack."
-Trev Faull, UK

lyrics

Lyrics:

So long my friends
It’s time for me to go
I’m sorry I can’t stick around to play another show

I don’t know how to tell you this
I’m driven to distraction
And fading in the mist

And it feels just like falling into quicksand
So shouldn’t someone break a branch from a tree?
And shouldn’t someone hold it out with both their hands?
And shouldn’t someone try to rescue me?

The darkness always comes
It happens every day
So why should it be strange to feel the edges start to fray

It’s nothing new
It always comes to this
Driven to distraction
And fading into mist

And it feels just like falling down a rabbit hole
Where everything is curious and queer
And nonsense is the only sense you understand
And everyone regards you like you’re weird

And it feels just like falling into quicksand
And it feels just like fading into gray
And it feels just like melting into water
You rise out of yourself and float away

Don’t worry, it’s just a passing phase
Eventually, it’s sure to go away
I’m serious. It’s just a passing phase
Eventually, it’s sure to go away…

But it feels just like falling into quicksand.
So shouldn’t someone break a branch from a tree?
And shouldn’t someone hold it out with both their hands?
And shouldn’t someone try to rescue me?
--
