Forget calls to teacher.
Forget calls in line.
We fall off furry creatures.
Fall off all the time.
And it’s not your headdress.
It’s not your hide.
It’s feeling the cold.
It’s feeling the cold.

(These things that we don’t talk about, breathe about. Do I? No.)

Take me over.
Take it over time.
Your needs keep talking.
Your pets they lie.

(These things we’ve never seen before come and meet you, come and fight you. You know they do.)

Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.
Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.
I’ve been really better under lock.

Come on over the side.
Come on over.
Take the leave for bread
And the leave for brine.

(It seems to me we’ve been lying here all night)

And bait and bows and sows and troughs.
I’ve coughed enough and I’ve walked as much.

(Come to me in metaphor. We’ve met before and I was all in spades.)

Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.
Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.
I’ve been really better under lock.

When you feel the fog,
It takes all the fog.
I can’t break the fog.
I’ve been really better under lock.

    General Commentthis might explain why a lot of their songs don't seem to make sense...

    Pitchfork: Aside from Ben Affleck, what inspires you to write songs?

    JG: [laughs] That's tough, Ben Affleck's really quite an inspiration.

    Pitchfork: Well, he's so versatile...

    JG: It's more his pompadour. I don't know. Generally, I'll just sit around and play guitar, and I definitely try to come up with music first, and then after I have a core idea of how I want the song to sound, I'll start forming the words. And I definitely say it's more like words than lyrics. I don't fancy myself as a poet or really articulate. But writing lyrics, I'll kind of mumble stuff when we sing, in the sound of where the words should go, and form words that would fit in there, and hopefully don't sound totally idiotic. The whole idea is to have words that don't detract from the music, but hopefully will enhance it.

    General CommentCheck out another great Indie band from Minneapolis - Bridge Club. They played Tapes 'N Tapes CD release and Tapes played their CD release. They are by far the two best bands in Minneapolis now. bridgeclubmusic.com/
