Here we meet our hero, Harold as he's racing to make it to school. The story is that whenever Harold was late for the school bus as a kid, he would always run in literal slow motion, thinking he was running fast like the Six Million Dollar Man in the theme song.
Your feet are moving but you’re not running fast enough.
Your arms are flailing but you’ll never catch the school bus.
Feel the winter freeze in the Chicago breeze.
You are not the Six Million Dollar Man!
Your body’s thin but you’ve always felt invincible.
Your classmates never got your principles.
Your mother used to scream,
“Harold, why are you running so slow??”
The world is spinning but it can’t keep up with you.
Your doctors/teachers/parents don’t know what to do.
Maybe it’s better to feel part machine than fully nothing at all!
They can rebuild you if you want them to,
but why would you want to be anything other than you
Your feet are moving and you’re finally running fast enough.
Your arms are flying cause you’re finally riding that school bus.
(They can rebuild you if you want them to!)
Feel the autumn wind slowly creeping in
You are the Six Million Dollar Man!
You are invincible again!
You are a superhuman!

a beautiful record that brought me through literally the worst moments of my entire life. while dealing with entirely different situations, this album helped me see the other side of the things I was going through. the blame, the pain, the destruction, all brought on by the actions of one broken human, unto his friends and family. it made me realize the importance of life and how people care about me. it helped me realize I don't need some girl to be whole and happy. fuck that. I need the people that really love me. my own actions could hurt so many others. thank you christian, thank you the hotelier. we love you more than we can explain and we miss you. there are people out there right now, alive, who might not be if this record didn't exist. your music has saved people. it certainly helped save me.
