Dylan Barton I met Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen about a month before he passed, I ran into him on the streets in St. Paul, and thats probably one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me, I later found this album and immediately fell in love with it, although I might be a bit cliche with my favorite track "glove." I just love the short little message inside it, and how it can change with my mood. Micheal Larsen truly is, and forever will be, the best artists I've ever had the pleasure of discovering. Favorite track: glove..

Track Name: glove.
Run from the feeling,
Lay the lonely down,
Fill your hopes with someone else now,
You could turn this city into a new town,
As long as you find someone new to be around.

Don't trust your choices,
Run when you get sore,
Eager for the next chapter,
Still stuck in the one before,
You could turn this city into a new town,
As long as you find someone new to be around.

Run from the feeling,
Lay your empty down,
Fill your hopes with something else now,
You took his hand and crammed it into your glove,
But just because it fits doesn't mean that you're in love.

Everything is old,
Everyone's alone.

Everything is old,
Everyone's alone.
Track Name: the twenty fifth hour.
You made me think it was the girl,
You made me think it was the girl,
But I, knew the whole time, that it was me.

You made me think it was the world,
You made me think it was the world,
But I, knew the whole time, that it was me.
Track Name: itchy.
I don't know what's wrong,
It's nothing special tonight,
I just feel like I could use a friend.

Sometimes I do too much,
Itch my way through the high,
Everyone needs something to help them hide.

If I die before I sleep,
Heaven will look just like a dream,
If I go up 'fore you do,
I'll save a spot in heaven for you next to me.
Track Name: cool is dead.
With your K-Mart Led Zeppelin shirt,
And your Target friendship bracelet,
Your Urban Outfitters record shelves,
And your extra large condoms,

Your dad is a grunge rocker,
Your daughter's a republican,
I would try to sleep with her,
But she's under thirty,
I may be insecure but at least I'm not poor,
You fuckers should be kissin' the ground that I walk on,
You fuckers should be kissin' the ground that I walk on,
You fuckers should be kissin' the ground that I walk on,
You fuckers should be kissin' the ground that I walk on,
Because I'm so fucking cool.
Track Name: claire.
If there's a place where nothing grows apart,
Take me there with Claire,
If there's a place where nothing grows apart,
Take me there,
With Claire.

Keep trying to convince myself I'm over it,
Keep trying to tell myself I'm fine.
But if there's a place where you get a second start,
Take me there,
With Claire.

If there's a place where I never broke her heart,
Take me there, I swear,
I swear,
I swear,
I swear.

Keep trying to convince myself I'm over it,
Keep trying to tell myself I'm fine,
Never thought you'd leave me all alone like this,
But I made the bed,
Yeah I made the bed,
So I guess it's mine.

But if there's a place where love isn't so hard,
Take me there, with Claire.
If there's a place where she never broke my heart,
Take me there,
With Claire.
Track Name: they don't want you around anymore.
Well you tried your best to be something you're not,
They already know.
Wore your cool guy suit to many friends, it almost worked
But they don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore (Yeah).

Well you know that my sex face is solely yours,
With built-in blush,
Super woman glue to stick to your guns,
You sure draw a crowd.

But they don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around anymore,
They don't want you around any mother-fucking more.
Track Name: storms coming (sleep tight).
Storm's coming was the talk of the truck stop restaurant,
Settle up the green and sky's coming close,
Buckle the baby down,
Mufflers sound like cellos tuning,
Wind like a theremin,
She dreams cartoon mice barber shop quartet serenade:

Sleep tight, baby,
Sleep tight.
Sleep tight, baby.

Outside it's my shitty car silhouette,
Backlit by lightning,
Then came the flood,
Road fills with mud,
Mouth fills with blood,
It's time that I tell you where the angels come from,
I promise to keep you warm 'til they arrive.

Sleep tight, baby,
Sleep tight,
Sleep tight, baby,

Storm's coming was the talk of the truck stop restaurant.
Track Name: fortunately gone.
I wait for you, in heaven,
On this perfect string of love,
And drink your soup of magpies in a,
Pottery bowl,
Looks as I am now,
Brown, round and warm.

Chime on a rain wet,
An ankle toes or two,
Sweetly as it drops upon your head,
Just like it did today,
Fortunately gone (Bah bah bah bah),
I wait for you.
Fortunately gone (Bah bah bah bah),
I wait for you.
Track Name: lather, rinse, repent.
(This one right here is old school)

I have no comment,
I'm not your heaven,
Unless you cut yourself into pieces I can understand.

Die for your causes,
I'll be your witness,
You don't always bore me,
It's just that you can.

They fly around my bones,
I can't even escape them in death.

Find the one who makes the grass green,
Then it's off with his head.

I have no comment,
I'm not your heaven,
Unless you cut yourself into pieces I can understand.
Track Name: i wish you well.
(YO YO YO person!)

There's a person around the corner,
Doesn't need anyone to make them happy,
They're perfect for you right now.

There's a river growing from the ocean,
Doesn't need anything to make it perfect,
It's perfect for me right now.

And there’ll be plenty more where that came from,
There’ll be plenty more where that came from,
There’ll be plenty more where that came from,
All I’ve got to do is open my eyes.

(God, I'm out of tune, it's awesome)

There's a person around the corner,
Doesn't need anyone to make them happy,
They’re smiling at you right now.

There's a river growing from the ocean,
It doesn't need anything to make it happy,
It's perfect for me right now.

And there'll be plenty more where that came from,
There'll be plenty more where that came from (Fuck!),
There'll be plenty more where that came from,
All I've got to do is open my eyes.
(Aww God…)
