  1. Its crazy I mainly listen to rap and pop but when I heard this song i must say you all are in your own lane these are the best lyrics i heard in such a long time your a amazing poet very powerful im sold on Slothrust beautiful song it speaks to me on so many levels

  2. I play this shit as loud as I can. Can’t say there’s another song that turns me into as much of an ecstatic nutcase as horseshoe crab!!!

  3. I think that behind the melancholy skin of this beautiful song is a message of hope. No matter what bad behaviors are causing your eating disorder, you can change the way you think of yourself and “get better”.

    I was writing out some ambiguous paragraph that led nowhere… It’s about heroin. You wake up with the same problems you went to bed with and realize you’re thirsty and bleeding. Eventually you don’t recognize yourself or the world you’re living in anymore. It’s easier to just go back to the water and forget who you are, but there’s someone you know you’re letting down. It could be someone who cares about you, who used to know you before you became an addict; or it could be your own body you’re neglecting as its convulsing and dehydrated. Having someone who makes you want to get back to your regular self is just beautiful and makes me want to cry. I’m so sorry I let you down, I forgot my only friend

  4. A comic book writer named Jeff Lemire brought me here. He included this on one of the Mixtapes for his amazing comic book series Royal City. Check it out!

    Anyway I love this band and I think this song is amazing! I truly connect with this song and find it simply beautiful! I'm always moved when I hear it. Currently jamming to this in the company of a bonfire. ✌

  5. I learned that hunger is a symptom
    of adopting bad behavior
    I bit my tongue last night
    Woke up with blood on my pillow
    I woke up thirsty

    Words makes less sense to me these days
    Faces looks flat and unfamiliar
    Do you wanna rest forever?
    Underwater it gets better

    When I get better
    I'll treat you like I used to
    I'll do the things you want me to

    Sometimes I feel like I'm a seahorse
    Sometimes I think that I'm a horseshoe crab
    I don't have anything in common
    With myself, except that I came from the sea
    Just like everyone else did
    But it is so unfamiliar now
    Everything is so unfamiliar now

    I learned that hunger is the same thing
    As adopting bad behavior
    I bit my tongue last night
    Woke up with blood on my pillow
    I woke up thirsty

    Words makes less sense to me these days
    Faces looks flat and unfamiliar
    Do you wanna rest forever?
    Underwater it gets better

    When I get better
    I'll treat you like I used to
    I'll do the things you want me to

    Sometimes I feel like I'm a seahorse
    Sometimes I think that I'm a horseshoe crab
    I don't have anything in common
    With myself, except that I came from the sea
    Just like everyone else did
    But it is so unfamiliar now
    Everything is so unfamiliar now
