"Teller" as written by and Kristin Hersh....
"I leave in the morning
I don't wanna go"
I said to the teller
"If this is the future
I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know"
"Fives and tens" said the guy behind the bar
"Twenty-five says he don't
You cut a nice figure of a family
I don't know
I don't know
I have a fear of flying
I think I have a fear of him
I'm afrais of meaning
Nothing again
After all this is over
This is over after all
We cut a nice figure of a family
I don't know
I don't know
Can I be stupid for a minute?
I was looking at that half-empty glass
Waiting for the waiter
You don't have to listen to this
Tell me what to say"

    General CommentKristin Hersh's musical alchemy means that she can turn a seemingly mundane conversation in a bank into lyrical gold.

    General CommentI like how she purposely confuses bank teller with fortune-teller. Excellent.
