Bassackwards

Kurt Vile

Lyrics

I was on the beach but I was thinking about the bay

Got to the bay but by then I was far away

I was on the ground but looking straight into the sun

But the sun went down and I couldn't find another one

For awhile

For because it was an all-burning feeling in my chest

To fill the void

Of a long night unwatched by, well, the sun

Until the morn

Until when, well, the sun's reborn

And so am I

From all the scorn buried deep

Within the psyche of my soul

I was standing down but I was also on the run

In my mind

I was on the radio talking with a friend of mine

There wasn't no format because well, we like it like that

He was out of his mind and I was way out of mine

Then everything went backwards

With words coming out

Bassackwards

And I appreciate him to the utmost degree

I was on the beach but I was thinking about the bay

Got to the bay but by then I was far away

I was on the ground but looking straight into the sun

But the sun went down and I couldn't find another one

For a while

To fill the void

Until the morn

Then everything went backwards

I mean, phrases flying out

Bassackwards, yeah

I was on the moon but more so, I was in the grass

So I was chilling out but with a very drifting mind

So I was on the ground circa planet earth

But out of sorts but I snapped back, baby

Just in time to jot it down and come around

And it's always to see you

And I came around

It's always to see you here when I come around

Or when I'm plain come, comin' down

Then everything goes backwards

I mean, everything moving out

Then everything goes backwards

I mean, everything oozing out

Bassackwards

(Strummin' a Chet Atkins)

I was standing up

But you know I hate to still stoop you down

To my level

Bassackwards

And I appreciate her to the utmost degree. yeah

Then everything went backwards

I mean, words coming out

Bassackwards, yes

It's just the way things is these days

That's the way they come out these days

Just the way things come out

Yeah, come on

To the utmost degree
