This song is by Deafheaven and appears on the album Roads to Judah (2011).

We're still laughing over lore
Still talking about a stream of smoke in the head of a shelter tank, swimmingly bored
Swimming in monotony
Swimming in ponds where our knees scrape the bottom and still, we swallow the surface
Where our knees scrape the bottom and still, we swallow

We brought our boredom to the lights, spoiled the city
Blind to the ocean, deaf to the heavens

Carving a shut in symphony
With memory's masturbation

I've, I've talked it out
Doomed to be a spoiled child, a pupil in the eyes of forever

I, I knit the fire, stared into the mirror
A prisoner to the past, a ghost to the present
A prisoner to the past, a ghost to the present
A prisoner to the past, a ghost to the present

Put down your glass
Don't raise a toast to your slaving bloodline now

Come to life
Walk the roads to Judah, to Judah
Come to life
Walk the roads to Judah, to Judah
Come to life
Walk the roads to Judah, to Judah
Come to life
Walk the roads to Judah, to Judah, tonight
