about

minor me Los Angeles, California

Track Name: smallest wing
take me back to the place
where i know i should go

let me live in the space
where i know i'm erased

i know i know you well
but you don't know me so well
feeling all around the room
like a person in the dark

as we drive in the dark
on our way to the show

all the worry inside
goes to you from my mind

i know i know you well
but you don't know me so well
feeling all around the room
like a person in the dark
Track Name: sad man
everybody wants to cut me down these days
what can i say?
and my brother saw me running out of my brain
what can i say?
i can't stand it when my head gets in the way
gets in the way
so i run from my thoughts and from your eye
what can i say?

i was your fantasy
i know a little too well
but dear it's over and i say
i'm sorry to say
i'm sorry to say

they run their mouth off like it doesn't hurt at all
i heard it all
she always said that of her lovers, i'm the best
i love the best
this confusion's got me clutching at my lungs
i love the best

you were my fantasy
i know a little too well
but dear it's over and i say
i'm sorry to say
i'm sorry to say

whatever they say i know it's
whatever you say i know it's not true
Track Name: bryant
remember those late drives?
the engine pines with such an ache

the girly songs we would blast
from '98, alternative

we're trouble-bound but ohhh
we mean no harm but
we'll take this fucking world
we'll take this fucking world

those secret rooms, the boys' life
i never put the key to that latch

our schoolmates talked the meanest trash
but brother i was sold on you

did you ever come out?
escape that trap
the one you hinted at
the one you hinted at

i've gone through years and i've gone through friends
i've got a rear view and so much depends
i remember the records, the beard i couldn't grow
don't talk anymore, but you're down in my soul

does the apple fall far from the tree?
does the apple fall far from the tree?
does the apple fall far from the tree?
does the apple fall far from the tree?
Track Name: high fidelity
and when the baby is born your crazy life is torn like a paper airplane
acting like you are so bored with the things that you afford, you're such a baby
maybe it's true what they say: a quiet life's a pain, but it's good for your spirit
put down your beer and your fear, it won't be so austere like you imagine

don't flush it down the toilet or the laboratory
dumpster kid
you'll clean away responsibility
but not the gory stain

a good woman picks you apart, and even if you're smart, we all could use that
yours happens to be a dear, don't leave out of the clear. she couldn't take it
think like the dark-headed man in high fidelity don't buy fantasy

don't flush it down the toilet or the laboratory
dumpster kid
you'll clean away responsibility
but not the gory stain

ah ah ah ah
Track Name: summer in springtime
summer in springtime
dreaming sweaty

i gotta tell you something right now
quickly before i forget
dammit it's slipping away

remember when we rode our bikes
silently into the night
blowing me under the tree

coming to my senses
slowly, meaningfully

autumn of our young days
dreaming sweaty

recalling my feelings for you
alcohol serving for two
you blow me up like a balloon

you're beautiful
you're beautiful
you're beautiful
you're beautiful
Track Name: taker
i eat my words
with a helping of sand
then lose myself
will i ever sail to land?

if you knew all the guilt i have
you would close your ears
it's what i fear

la da da da da da
la da da da da da
la da da da da da

i eat my world
to a horrible degree
no consequence
or at least there's none i see
or at least there's none i see

if you knew my confidence
you would close your ears
it's what i fear

la da da da da da
la da da da da da
la da da da da da
Track Name: paint my days
she's standing with a cigarette envy
psychedelic panic, she tells me

and oh no
i'm jonesing
wishing for rain

night-vision
restriction
suspend the pain

and when it's really bad
the color fades
after the darkest night
you paint my days

we couldn't get enough of it those days
antiseptic, manic in our haze

take a breath, dear
have no fear
don't pray for rain

and oh no
it's over
there's no more pain

and when it's really bad
the color fades
after the darkest night
you paint my days

Track Name: passing out in a car on tuesday
passing out in a car on tuesday
reek of peanuts and bad tequila
drink with strangers and they console me
not forever, but it's nice to meet ya

the song that i select is not too heavy
but the volume is set way too loud
step outside to get some perspective
but i'm stuck too far inside this cloud

i miss you
you know this
i'm sorry that i love you

waking up in a car on wednesday
there's commotion and the sound of sirens
have no memory, head is pounding
i am paranoid, too excited

i miss you
you know this
i'm sorry that i love you

passing out (in a car on tuesday)
