Jason Vitelli: Confluence

Feel Better

You’ll feel better when you’re sleeping
You’ll feel better when you’re eating
The words you tried so hard to keep down
And you’ll never know when they’ll next come around

May patience always keep you in line
And when in doubt you’ll feel better next time

Run baby run,
Hold back those tears and the needs you will shun
Run baby run,
How could you allow your freedom to be sold out?

You'll feel better when you’re choking
Upon those leers of fear and loathing
You’ll feel better when you’re dying
Nailed to your losses should they find you writhing

And I don’t know if I can stay any longer
When all I’ve tried to do was make you stronger
May patience always keep you in line
And when in doubt you’ll feel better next time

Run baby run,
Hold back those tears and the needs you will shun
Run baby run,
How could you allow your freedom to be sold out?

How can you feel better
When you’re leaving your love behind
The joys you once knew
And the days you thought you could never lose?

Oh run, run baby run
And how can you believe your freedom is still gone?
