"Love 5" as written by and Kevin Drew....
when you're all alone
and your best friend is your skin
you reach for a church
inside your complexion
your one is cool
maybe even a little rotted
(?) the two in someone else's
god for god

things that i want could destroy
safe hearts
things that i want will destroy

dying rough is the place
victim of the chase
a seizure with silence
taken from a
rushin' bitches face
you're held down by the sea
oh the number three
but i feel that there could be
a lovely community

the things that want could destroy
safe hearts
the things that want will destroy
the things that want could destroy
safe hearts
the things that want will destroy

"my day was different than yesterday. but it will be different again tomorrow so, i'm looking forward to tomorrow. i'm in for the night. recording songs. um, i'll be here when you get home. bye."

    General Commenti think the lyrics are actually..

    a seizure with subtitles
    taken from a
    russian bitch's face...

    i really want to know what exactly kevin was singing during the last parts of the song. in my opinion this song talks about the things the mind is capable of thinking when loneliness becomes one's constant companion. although it can be a routine sometimes, there's still hope that there can be change somewhere ("you're held down by the sea, oh the number three, but i feel that there could be a lovely community"). plus the last part (the message/recording thing) offered optimism, so i think that's always good. this has got to be my favorite kevin drew song. :]

    I heard he recorded this at Ohad's house so that's probably it.(?)

    General Comment"you reach for a church inside your complexion"
    love 5 is a statement of how, when faced with loneliness and isolation, individuals seek refuge inside of themselves, but their longing and wanting pose a threat to this safety ("the things i want will destroy safe hearts")
    we want to believe that we can live alone, in tiny cottages stuffed inside our hearts, but longing and lust and wanting prove the idea ineffective. and our desires leave us vulnerable in cardboard-box-snow-street cold.

    love 5 is streaming at the arts&crafts kevin drew website.

    General CommentI hear, "When you’re all alone and your best friend is your skin, you reach for a church inside your complexion. Your one is cool, maybe even a little rotted. A reminder that two is someone else’s god forgotten."
