Another improv-turned-song between Clark and Nathan.


I've got a question, I've got the truth.
Words caught in questions will always fall through.
And I try to write on pen and paper
But I'm later with my words
And I'll try not to speak highly of the wrong things
Happened in my life,
I said you'd be the one.

Every time I think I'm wrong,
I can stay within these walls and
Search through the walls that I've built inside.

No, I'm too much of a fool;
Too much of a minuscule personality.
Start to say that I could never be
Anything that could ruin my family
And I start to spit out of my mouth
I start to say, "I'm drowning for you."

So I call through the tide,
And I'll side with your Mountains.
So I'll call through the tide,
And I'll write sometime.

Ain't no sugar baby tonight.
You ain't gettin' don't even care!
But only you don't know where,
Because I hide beneath the shadows!
What a plan!
I'm goin' down on you.
Oh God, I'm coming down on you tonight!
Why don't you say a word?
Why don't you ever eat my curds and whey?!?

Lay beside me, breathe into me
Intertwine with me.
You're a whirlwind of terror,
Red lips and red hair;
A maze of unkissed skin.
You were there to hold me,
There to console me,
and never mourn my loss.
We're lonely and desperate for attention.
We're three such jaded kids.

The Jimblejorp once proclaimed that a breed of giants would emerge from clouds and descend upon instruments in the form of man. This band is not those descendants. Furthermore, the Jimblejorp is only rumored to exist, much less tell prophecies, even much less tell them accurately. If you see the Jimblejorp, report him to this band for a reward and the authorities for benefit of humanity. ... more
