​Sink To The Beat

This song is by Cursive and appears on the EP Burst And Bloom (2001).

I'll try to make this perfectly clear
I'm so transparent I disappear
These words I lyrically defecate
Upon songs I boldly claim to create
Clint steps in to establish the beat
4/4 hip hop and you don't stop
This unique approach to start an EP
Intended to shock, create a mystique
A cheap strategy, a marketing scheme
Building awareness for the next LP
They've got a good fan base
They've got integrity
They've got a DC sound
Shudder to Think, Fugazi
And Chapel Hill Around The Early 90's
This is the latest from saddle creek

Some melodies are like disease
They can inflame your misery
They will infect your memories
They haunt me
Some memories are like disease
They can inflame your misery
They will infect your melody
They haunt me

I write these words with my motherly intuition
I shape these sounds into harmonic apparitions
But I can see can see through these haunting things
My moldy dreams are debased by the same hands that shaped them

I'll try to make this perfectly clear
I'm so reflective I am a mirror
These words I'm driving into the ground
The same words I scream out over the crowd

I'm just an air wave rolling around
I storm and crash without a sound
There's all these islands out at sea
I can't reach

I'm just an airplane diving down
I storm and crash without a sound
Engines exploding silently out at sea
Where waves caress unstable egos
Where melody is completely swallowed
Where songwriters chain their songs
To their ankles and
Sink to the beat
Till it stops and
Bursts under pressure
Let it
Burst and bloom
Hit song
Let it burst and bloom
