Daily Song Share: Climbing, The Meat Puppets

I am a bit of certifiable fan of these guys, mostly because I fell for their strange and interesting lyrics, which are a lot like life in the way that they hint at having meaning, but no one meaning can be derived from them. Any meaning is implicit rather than explicit, and can only be found in the syntax of the lyrics and tone of the song.
The album this is from, Meat Puppets II is an absolute classic, which I recommend to anyone.

climb, climb, i always climb
out of bed in the morning
on a mountain made of sand
and i know this doesn’t rhyme
but the clutter on the table
has been getting out of hand

i know that you tried to see me through
but honey i’m still having trouble
finding out what’s you

time, time, it’s so sublime
well they say it’s non-existent
but it’s playing with my mind
and phone calls don’t cost a dime
in the caverns of your feelings
where the sun will never shine

i know that you tried to see me through
but honey i’m still having trouble
finding out what’s you

mine, mine, which things are mine?
well i thought i saw a few
before i found out i was blind
and i think i see a sign
and it’s saying where to go
and when i get there what i’ll find

i know that you tried to see me through
but honey i’m still having trouble
finding out what’s you
