09. Rabbit Holes

The Peace of Wild Things
by Paper Route



 

Can I welcome
You this evening
To the front row
For the main event
Where a woman
Plays a villain
A magician
And a monument

Itís true (you, you)
Iíll always follow you (you, you)
Iíll always follow
Rabbit holes
Rabbit holes
Where you wound up at no one knows
No one knows
No one knows
How they wound up in rabbit holes

We have all heard
Of this great act
And itís legend
The protagonist
Sheíll be nameless
In a red dress
Just to vanish
In the endingís twist

Itís true (you, you)
Iíll always follow you (you, you)
Iíll always follow

Rabbit holes
Rabbit holes
No one knows
No one knows
No one knows
How they wound up in rabbit holes

I will catch you

Iím running into a speeding train
Youíre every bone that I need to break
And every color that Iíll ever paint
Youíre in everything, everything

Iím jumping out of your crashing plane
I wanna fall straight through your name
In every turn of my twisting beings
Youíre in everything, everything

Wake me in the morning so I know
That you made it back from your rabbit hole

I will catch you

Itís true
Oh whereíd you go
No one knows
No one knows
How they wound up in rabbit holes

I donít know how to say this
But I feel everything at once
Do you think that God sings
When I close my eyes I can feel myself falling
And falling
Falling to the center of the earth
And I donít want to take you with me



Behind the Song:
(Chad) the first time we recorded drums at Joy Mansion, it was to this track. At the time it was called something else, and we really just wanted to experiment with microphones and different rooms for drums. I pulled up this track and Gavin played to a beat I had programmed and it took on a new life! He then expounded on it and I was blown away by what he was doing. We gave it to JT a few days later and some time went by. One day JT said he tried some things on the song and it was either the best thing he had ever done or the worst thing. After Gavin and I heard it, we decided it was the best thing. We kept taking the song in different directions all the way up until the last minute. Actually, the last times we ever recorded drums at Joy Mansion was also for Rabbit Holes (the part in the bridge).

(JT) I would also like to add that when I opened up my Rabbit Holes folder, I counted 27 versions on my computer alone.
