Fire is motion. Work is repetition. This is my document. We are all all we've done. We are all all we've done. We are all all defenses. Fire is motion. Is motion growth? And you are colder than oldness could ever be. And you are bolder than buzzing bugs. My mama said my cousin Bucky's so boldly bald cuz he never took his hat off. He kept that cap on even when swimming. I know there's a lesson in there somewhere something nothing special 'bout boys who smell like salami and boys who've never apologized. And you are colder than oldness could ever be. And you are bolder than buzzing bugs.

    General Commentnothing else in the song except the beginning matters.
    "work is repetition", then repeating are the words "we are all we've done". there's a lesson about the bald guy who never took his hat off!! what is it?....

    General Commentoh kinsella. if only you were younger. cap'n jazz is definitely the foremost "chaotic bedroom indie rock" band. besides joan of arc. but i'm obviously just partial.
