"Tiny Paintings" as written by and Cameron Bird....
Tonight the neon answers flare.
Occasionally we stop and stare past tiny paintings painted where,
aLl the clouds were wrong.
With killer stares and sideways frowns,
in keeping with, the universe all upside down, twice.
And broken legs and arms in slings, you cry
Secretly, but won't wear my diamond ring why?

A billion cares, a thousand stings you cry secretly.
choose the chapter where they start fights.
And millionaires have bought this town and changed everything.
I found you in the lost and found, white. white white!

    General CommentLove this song, but i think the second 'You cry secretly' is actually 'We lie frequently'

    General CommentAhh, one of my favourite Architecture in Helsinki songs. I just can't get over the passion in their voices when they say "fight fight fight" and "white white white." It makes me want to jump up and yell.

    What I think it's about is that he proposed to a girl, and she agreed, but won't wear the engagement rings? And everything around them is changing because they know and disapprove of it.

    Just a guess. ;D

    General CommentI'm pretty sure in the fourth line it's "You cry sick of me."

    General Commenti always thought the last couple of lines were "i found you in a lost and found, why, why why?"

    that resonates with me because of a relationship i had that started with a girl coming to town, and it just seemed both accidental and fateful at the same time that we met, because i fell in love with her and all.

    but now, 3 years later, she's pretty much done all she could to ruin my life, so i'm listening to "small town witch" by sneaker pimps quite a lot as well.

    General CommentGod, this song is so beautiful! It's so sad. But the hurt, timid and staggered voice he uses in the second stanza is so perfect, but it gets more and more angry as the song progresses. IT's sad that all of the songs on this album are so short, as they are all amazing. Protero Hill is possibly the greatest interlude in all of music.
