"Perfect Teeth" as written by and Joshua Allen Cain Justin Pierre Courtney....
Someday I fear I will be rescued from the boredom line
With lack of memory I fail to question
Why with perfect sound you bring me down
Hey I'm not listening

You're through killing me
With all your facts and late night therapy like "Paul's Boutique"
On empty streets parked
And waiting for lights to turn on for good luck and drunk on your parents' favorite wine

All the things I remember were they worthy of writing down
Bury me in memories of ck1 and tight white t's like air guitar in muscle cars with "perfect teeth"
The way we are back in '95
More def than alive

I wrote the screenplay to lack of direction
Late night movie "dates" with girls who skate and I just can't relate
I'm through with school 'cause I broke the rules now I work for the man and I'm drunk once again watching reruns of night court ib cable t.v. wake up

Thought that everybody loved me
Thought that everybody cared
That that I might have the strength to carry on turns out that I'm barely holding on, hey hey hey
it's been quite a long time

I I I don't miss last November alright
Yeah it's time for a high-five, hey hey hey
It's been quite a long time

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by Motion City Soundtrack, I think this song is wonderful. I think they are trying to remember all of the good times they had with a special someone. They lost touch with the person and maybe found them? I'm not sure, that's what I get from it...

    General Commentbeastie boys reference? I didn't catch that. at first when i heard this i got excited because i thought they said "cky" and "plain white t's" and then thought about it and realized that it probably wasn't it. so anybody, ck1? perfect teeth the way they are? i get that it's about growing up but there's so many specifics that i'm interested in figuring out.

    a lot is hard to understand as far as how he talks, like air guitar in muscle cars. he says it really cool though.

    and i'm pretty sure he says "all the things i remember were they worth writing down?" not "were they worthy of"

    just a thought.

    General CommentBeing rescued from the boredom line means having to grow up and not have enough time to be bored anymore. Je pense.
