fingers, like tall grass
dance on the ceiling
like needle and thread
through shadows and lips
and with,
a kiss
our skin mysteriously melts

your skin glows
like coals, like honey
i am buzzed, like a bee
but you float
and i fall
broken-bee takes spectacular dives
broken-bee takes spectacular dives

i'm awfully available
in so many shapes

waiting for you to light me (x8)

    General Commenti'll admit that the only reason i know about this band is because i looked up paul dano on wikipedia and saw the link to his band's website. i expected them to be kind of stupid (like 30 seconds to mars or something) but i loved this song. it's so pretty. i think of it like a guy who keeps messing up, and this girl is the one he counts on to help him and sort of keep him from himself. i don't know if that's what they meant by it, but anyway. it's a beautiful song, and i hope that mook makes more stuff in the future.

    General CommentI'll admit it too. I did the same thing as woobin. Is there ANYTHING that's not on Wikipedia?

    That's besides the point though. What I mean is that this is an unbelievably moving song and soft and pretty and amazing.

    I like it.

    There is one thing that's not on wikipedia: a page for the band.

    I love mook.

    Damn Paul Dano's sexy perfection.

    General CommentI did the exact same thing. HA! for the past week i've been legitimately obsessed with Paul Dano, and this song is exactly why I love him. it's sweet and tender and simple in a very intelligent way. and he sings it with such restraint. jesus christ.

    General CommentI also found them after I wiki'd Paul, being blown away by his performance in There Will Be Blood (moreso after I found out his age and preparation time). At first I listened to their songs a few times, and liked it but figured I was projecting onto the band because I was impressed with Paul's acting. Then I listened to them some more. And after a while, I realized I couldn't stop listening to them. It's chronic somebody please help me - I'm addicted to Mook.
