Jeff knocks at 1128
waits at the stairs
me and Marcus scurry down
got his ass on the rail
bright shocks our eyss
we stumble adaze
we'll save all our stories
for the tea and the shade

I know I didn't write you
but then there was no desire to
I see a sea of faces
I wish I had

Thomas's wrists on his chins
kelly green shirt
smirkin' 'cause he don't
got a nickle to pitch
steamin' plates
they for reach
we politely withhold
can't put out a fork
til Marcus has thanked the Lord

we laugh about our friends
from gradeschool
working for their fathers and
Marcus tells me Rose is doing great

and we know we sleep so long on borrowed grants and dimes from Miles
and you know that package of yours makes me proud and bittersweet with time

and we know we sleep so long on borrowed grants and dimes from Miles
and you know that package of yours makes me proud and bittersweet with time

    General CommentAmazing song.
    I think it is about his friends from the past: while he was back in school, and how he has failed to keep in touch with them. I seems like he is recalling his fondest memories with them.

    General Commenti agree it has to do with being nostalgic about old times but he isn't sorry for not writing so i guess he's saying "those were great times and i loved you guys but now i'm in a new place and i can't drag the past with me." i believe the lyrics are a little off but i'm not sure :)

    General CommentI swear I think the lyric is: Marcus tells me Rose is due in May.
