Disorganization, forging nations of papers predestinating superhero capers
Light sabers my neighbors consist of
Mint cookies bent books keys three tennis balls
Peanut butter a Japanese chicken clock and when it falls
On eight thirty I'm hurting it's early and my hair is dirty
Teeth as if beneath a highlighter, just not pearly
Peeling armhairs harm their relation to the band-aid
The mucas formation is man made
I plan eight minutes more of sleep
I'm in it snorin deep
beep beep beep
When again it roars I keep my eyelids analagous to a succesful venus-fly trap
Tellin my left brain it's Saturday well he must buy that
Wakin up again I look around and find another year has passed
We're discovering
at last near a lover not so fast
here I'm hovering to make time slow down go back to last year
we'll meet again but the characters are never gonna be the same that's clear
I wanna see your name hand written on a letter whether this is planned or not
Life keeps getting better but still I just don't understand a lot
I'm growing up and up up out out damn this spot's
Similar to a ball I saw in a mall it expands and knocks me off course
Of course that's just how it goes
The farther I walk from my house the more my world grows
So I froze
Thinking bout being four years old I'm missing the
Days when I was with everyone I knew just around the Christmas tree
Now there's so many people and so many place s and so many faces that the only way
that I could ever get you all together would be to die
So you could ask what's the point of makin friends
You just end up forsakin them
Well god's given me life, so I'm livin. That's why
That's why I went to the bookstore
To look for a Zodiac sign book
Quick, search, find, look
Wrote it down in my rhymebook
To check and see if we're compatible I had to pull back my left arm
It said a libra plus another one is a double dose of charm

Chorus:
Time this is your time this is your time this is your brain
(never known such intensity)
Fine this is your line this is your mind this is your brain
(now a lot of radio songs make sense to me)

How unlikely I found someone to soothe my psyke so write me cuz you make me wanna
pull a nike words on the tip of my tongue and it might be urge in my hips and I'm sprung
like bike seats when you spoke you turned my wheels now I can't handle the breaks
project images pure no scandalous fakes I could light up the candle and baste your bare
body wax til you make the same noise pamela makes
There's something smack dab in the center I lack the vocab to enter a discussion of exatly
what makes you a WINNER hot SPRINGS roommates FALL into place SUMMER too
soon all in the case of I wonder who knows what goes up under two close cut birthday
twins I just can't seem to pin down why it relates to inside her I spider cuz she's fly
recognize a certain sigh that I heard windows open curtains tied and the birds saying this
is the dawn I thought about the places my kisses had gone given self quizzes on the
course of events every resource sent my brainwaves to the same thought content things
that had mattered before were laughable shattered at the door give it autobiographical
point of pivot week and the weekend before I wanted power but all that changed in an
hour movin over worlds when I met my dream lover the clover girls fell off the magazine
covers I hadda seem utterly thrilled cuz I was goofy expression on my grill dumbstruck I
was buzzed offa disbelief even though I thought we might no one ever got me quite so
right as the night of your favorite thing conversation and laughter and the night after and
the night after damn I like hafta see you now it's worth it man... perfect

Chorus:
Time this is your time this is your time this is your brain (this is my)
Fine this is your line this is your mind this is your brain (this is my)
Time this is your time this is your time this is your brain (this is my)
Fine this is your line this is your mind this is your brain (this is my)

Bridge:
This is my heart this is the part one asleep one awake back to back in the dark
(In the night there's two in the light only one of us will remain)

I'm in denial I can't believe it was all just a trial now I'm writing this song in asylum I
haven't sen you in a while one side left now I gotta walk single file come back soon
please even in a full classroom if you're not there then it feels like a vacuum in fact you
never really heard me attack you with every little word about what makes me attract to
the only girl I every wanna kiss ever throw rice with you're a priceless treasure a living
piece of bliss and pleasure so fuck this weather whatever if I hafta stop rappin I'm a
break into tears my head's ringing from the noises that you make in my ears so I'm stuck
now waitin a year don't give a fuck how I struck out what for goodness sake I'm here
father time patricide need you like an artery hopin that you cried a fraction as hard as me
relax an just pardon the expression but I love yo-no I love attraction, or I love my own
reaction added one to my self and I couldn't help meltin to nothin, subtraction

Been around the world been another year
I recover thoroughly And now I'm here
Like a mother pearl layer top of layer
Met another girl here comes the fear and the sheer joy
And the sheer bliss floating through the universe on a kiss
Lips slippin and I'm trippin grippin drippin doubt
Flippin out over just this? And I stay
Calm recite this song listen
Second verse connects fittin
Her with you and you with me and third verse needs remixin
I need a fifth one to say I keep meetin you under different conditions
Last one made my heart smart shit I wanna start right with this one
Now I'm with you, now I miss you, now I don't know when I'm gonna see you
And I'd like to and I'd love to and I maybe even wanna be you
So I'm thankful and I'm spiteful in the night pullin at you tight
Sank fully into the shadow you left recall
The strength of your bad breath
And the smell of sweat, bet another fella gets jealous me well it's not yet
I'd picture maybe we could get together in another place, another time signature
Hey hope you didn't mind this is your
Face painted in my rhyme
This is yours, this is yours... this is mine

This is yours this is yours this is mine
(Whatever you attach to is what you become)
(Now I don't know when I'm ana see you)
This is yours this is yours this is mine
(One plus one double horizontal line one)
(And I maybe even wanna be you)

    General Comment:WTFTITS? No comments? His last verse is as good or much better than anything on either flobots cd. Hell, I'll even admit the R&B verse is damn good, though ive barely warmed up to it. I wish that an entire CD could be created from the rap starting at "Been around the world been another year..". I don't know if its the simple Bass line at the end or his flow, but that's the best ending to a song next to SOAD's Chop Suey.

    My Interpretation:I am a huge Flobots fan, and one of the rawest and truest talented songs is from the newest album, titled, "By the time you get this message." In the beginning of the song, you hear either a dial tone of numbers, for binary coding. which has led me to believe that Johnny 5 cleverly decided to tie the two songs together. Here is my interpretation of one of the lyrics I see matching. Binary lyric; "This is my heart this is the part one asleep one awake back to back in the dark(In the night there's two in the light only one of us will remain),By the time you get this message lyric; "Is this the part where my heart breaks? One asleep, one awake, back to back because you wouldn't turn towards me."
    making these two songs written at different times, related. johnny 5 is making a assumption that the clover girl is found/caught/revealed, this song will have fit his prediction or hope. Began or begins. Either he knows it is going to be tricky, during writing binary, or he deliberately wrote the lyrics and connected them later to create a connection. Making Survival Stories his love story, and having Panacea for the Poison, which is the final song on Survival Stories my other favorite. It is written to guess whether he has or hasn't depicted throughout the album. I have listened in its entirety, several times, and still find it baffling. Yes the references can construe several types of scenario's, but in the end, he is "growing old" and "telling stories at the same time" which leads me to believe that the binary is nothing but a message to the only person who could decipher it, johnny 5 to his growing old partner. The only true mystery, is if he predicted the turn out before this song, or if in fact the song was written for someone then and made to fit for the one now.
