Laser Animator
Add another to the breaker
On a broken escalator
We could get what we need
Cos it's a night of confessions
Electric digressions
Honorable mentions get a bouquet of weeds
And everybody moving
Like they know what they're undoing
Pushing weight against the wall
In a stifling room
Cities in shambles Untangling tangles
People get together
To uncover the ruins

This girl that I know
I met her at a Minuteman show
(She used to work for a literary journal but she's really into guitar)
This girl that I know
I met her at a Booker T. Show
(She kind of brushed me off I think she likes movies from France)

Just like a lone dancer
In lonesome disaster
With a chrome ghetto blaster
We just do what we feel
Even if it's atrocious
There's no hope for the hopeless
If there's nothing to cope
We get a rhythm that's real
Like a Tuesday commuter
With a dirty computer
We see the future hanging out
In a monoxide cloud
Habits are forming
Like cigarettes boring
To a smoker in the morning
Pulling butts from the ground

This girl that I know
I met her at a Sonic Youth show
(I like her style she has got that ???????)
This girl that I know
I met her at a Jodeci show
(She was looking good you know)

    General CommentYou must have gotten a different version of the song.
    I clearly hear "She used to work for a literary journal but she's really into HIP-HOP" -not guitar.
