All This Useless Energy

Jeff Rosenstock

Lyrics

Darkness holds

Begging me to lose control

We wrestle it back and forth 'til urban silence

Cuts through night

With a scalpel for the light

That bleeds through the margins

And leaves me semi-conscious

I haven't found the rhythm yet

To anchor down my life

I didn't know I needed one

To hold me through the night

Ain't it great

Smashing through the interstate

Where we guess the futures of

Our concurrent strangers?

They're on their way to the doctor or to raise

Grandkids of young twenty-somethings

And teenagers

I'm worried of abandoning

The joys that framed my life

But all this useless energy

Won't hold me through the night

Oh please

You're not fooling anyone

When you say you tried your best

'Cause you can't be your best anything

When you can't get any rest

Oh please

You're not fooling anyone

When you say you tried your best

'Cause you can't be your best anything

When you can't get any rest

I am worried of abandoning

The joys that framed my life

But all this useless energy

Won't hold me through the night

Won't hold me through the night

Won't hold me through

Won't hold me through the night
