Molecules disipate, disperse and recoagulate
Breath in and out, there is nothing more

I am mist, you are steam, we are clouds
We are drifting away, drifting away
to one of many heavens where blue light prevails
We dream perfect music, we hang from our tails
to one of many hells and sharpen up our horns
Plotting our revenge by waiting to be born

Particles of light, particles of matter
come together for an instant...

then scatter.

    General CommentSmith wasn't an official member of Quasi, they acted as backing band for some his tours (and i think he may have returned the favor at some of those gigs)

    General CommentI saw Quasi open for Built to Spill just this month and they were terrible. It's weird to know that they had any connection with Elliott, the master.

    General CommentWe dream perfect music, we hang from our tails
    to one of many hells and sharpen up our horns
    Plotting our revenge by waiting to be born

    Realized dreams of better future selves are the only vengeances available.
