about

As the grim decade of a year that was known as 2020 lurched toward a sort-of-end, Rabbit Junk channeled pandemic burnout and isolation into a one-off single. It was an act of coping, somewhere between a distraction and an outlet. The lyrics are about shedding what's familiar and the strange grief that accompanies leaving your old self in the past. Nor sure if this is really a direction we'll keep heading - it's just what felt right at the time. Enjoy!

lyrics

Against instinct you feel it
Pulling you toward a world unknown

A voice submerged in whispers
Speaking foreign riddles and code

Do you follow the light, in spite that its blinding?
Finding bodies on the road?

Do you feel your way in the darkness?
Knowing that you will never get to see home?

Never get to see home
Go!

A voice submerged in whispers
Beckons our reckoning

I rush to face it
Move fast but still unsure
Running while wounded
Drink the poison like a cure

Do you follow the light, in spite that its blinding?
Finding bodies on the road?

Do you feel your way in the darkness?
Knowing that you will never get to see home?

Never get to see home

It’s taking more and more
Picking myself up off the floor
My will everyday lessening
Ahead I see the reckoning

Frozen to the core
I can’t keep warm any more
I can’t escape the wakening
Ahead I see the reckoning

I rush to fix it
Trace the pattern in the air
Running while wounded
Pull the edges, close the tear
But still I’m bleeding
A message in the sand
The leeches feeding
Lost in a stranger’s land
