"Gazebo" as written by and Michael Kinsella....
Alone on the train, you're running towards or maybe away from a reason to wake each morning. Your thoughts again drift towards us and what we have and haven't become. Your head shakes and you think "never again." It's true what they say about fools who leave too soon, they don't ever really move on. Put your hand in your bag and pull out the Carver book you grabbed before leaving. And then you realize in this too she was right. You make an excuse, you make up a lie. So what's left of your soul like the best friend you just sold to sleep? Easy at night. It's true what they say about fools who speak too soon, they don't ever really know what they're getting into or out of. You're on your way, the taste of blood from a bitten tongue. You're in need of some new teeth that won't cave in.

    General Commentreally? that's wierd. it seems like he relates a lot to things he reads. like the american football song, "letters and packages" is about the short story by j.d. salinger, "for esme, with love and squalor."

    General CommentI'm glad that someone recognized the Salinger reference. I was struck immediately as soon as I read the short story, I could hardly believe the parallel.

    General CommentI love JD Salinger and I have yet to read "For Esme, with Love and Squalor". I will soon, like now.

    Also I agree with the first post, it's incredible how Mike can write songs that I can relate to so incredibly.

    General Commentthis was the first owen song i ever heard.
    from then on, i was in love.

    yeah, i've noticed mike talks to himself a lot in his songs... he is the subject and he sort of looks in on the situations... like he wants a different perspective.
