Down by Okkervil River slow silent thick and black, I stared into the water, and the water it stared back. The night it fell from tangles of the branches on the shore as it had on Okkervil River before. Down by Okkervil River's cigarettes and rusty tires, we made ourselves an altar, we lit our nightly fires. And the smoke lay thick and smothered all the skunk cabbage and vines where Gods were born and Gods lay down to die. With your hand inside my pocket, you whispered in my ear "We have come from ugliness to find some refuge here. With this bracken for a blanket, where these limbs stick out like bones, we have found a place where we can be alone." And I tried to tell you, as I kissed your hard dry lips, all the things I dreamed about. I touched your bone white hips. Far away our parents slept in while we watched our fire burn. They dreamed of nothing and got nothing in return. And the water slipped on slowly past our bodies in the weeds, pulling plastic wrap and razors on its current through the reeds. Then I woke up one cold morning, felt an absence at my back, and I searched and stared but only the river stared

    There's no such thing as overreacting to a song emotionally (unless you're tearing up listening to black metal or something). What a sweet intro with the soft drums and that distracted acoustic guitar, and then that mandolin cuts in...wow.

    The one-two punch of "Listening to Otis Redding at Home..." and then this... Oh boy.

    it's a song about being young and in love and having been miserable for a real long time and now that your finally happy you never want things to change but you know that they will and their lying on the riverbank of this dirty river with cigarette butts and rusted tired but its perfect because their alone
