Snail Mail – Slug lyrics

Did you just lie in place? Under covered rocks
Or would you rather cut it all down? Just the same as everyday
[Verse 2]
Oh useless thing
What does another useless day bring? [Verse 1]
Oh garden slug
What would you give to live like one of us? Just to keep it from dragging you around
[Chorus]
And in the waves I could’ve sworn that I saw my own reflection
And it was someone else’s in the back
I could’ve waited my whole life to
Know the difference
But I should’ve just known better than that
[Outro]
So if you look death right in the face, don’t thank him
Because there’s nothing and there won’t ever be
And in moss covered springs you’ll never find anything
So what’s the use in hiding under our feet? Emulated by the way I lie awake
[Chorus]
And in the waves I could’ve sworn that I saw my own reflection
And it was someone else’s in the back
I could’ve waited my whole life to
Know the difference
But I should’ve just known better than that
[Verse 3]
And oh is it easiest to hide? Or would you rather wait in the shade?
