"Safety Bricks" as written by and Kevin Drew....
You can never really start from the start
The ending begins inside of the heart
The people, they love to remember your name
It's a hospital bed but it's all just the same

Why did you leave when you'll return?
Your past is your future, your future will learn
The crows that fly, we'll try not to find
Do things once you know you'll do it twice

So I want kids with safety bricks
And a car that's quick, so we can split

Why did protection burn down your home?
The smoke was so rich that they gave you a throne
Turning clue hands into sunrise
Three times the charm, three times you pay the price

So I want kids with safety bricks
And a car that's quick, so we can split
So I want kids with safety bricks
And a car that's quick, so we can split

The miniature live inside of a grin
I'll stop for a moment and try to refrain
I'm hoping you learn just like when you were a kid
Let's hop a fence and do what we always did

    General CommentI don't know how Drew does it, but all his songs seem to have an intimate feel. One of my favourites from the album.

    General CommentWow, I was just listening to this and thought "this is so Feist-y," so I came here to post that, only to find I'm not the only one who noticed.
    I'm kind of relieved that I'm not the only one who thinks so, hahah.

    Sooo good.

    General CommentVery similar sound. Also keep in mind that Drew and Feist have been making music together for almost a decade...that might explain it. SO happy for this album. BSS has really changed to landscape of pop and rock in recent years, and it is great to see people like Kevin Drew and Feist finally getting some attention as individuals. Also, J. Mascis AND Spiral Stairs are on this album, which makes it officially kickass.
