"Capricorn" as written by and Ian Fraser/clarke Kilminster....
be little
for now
your time will come before
the earth rotates winter

he said
i feel like this licorice
and she sticks so well
oh well

i'm not in your stars
but it's still early

you lie because you're in the bed

be little
for now
your time will come before
the flat earth december

she said
he's so hard to hear
so will i outgrow
well if he says so

*you can't look at the sky
without looking right through it

i'm not in your stars

    General CommentTo place the questions above with answers, Cap'N'jazz is a band originally formed in Wheeling, IL . At the same time chris was living in wheeling , so as braid became better known its basically a shout out to a great band that bred many others in its wake. So yes they were friends and everyone is happy ever after

    General CommentI am assuming that Braid used these lyrics because in the CaP'n Jazz song "Yes, I Am Talking To You", Tim Kinsella sings "I'm dying to tell you I'm dying/I don't need a reason". These lines were lifted (with due recognition) from the Friction song "Auburn" for which Bob Nanna (guitarist and vocalist for Braid) was the drummer. Make sense? I hope so. I am kind of just pulling this out of my ass, so don't quote me on it.

    General CommentThere's also a Cap'n Jazz lift in "Niagara" by Braid, the line "Sugar, even odd smiles are in this season." is from "Que Serte!" on CJ's only LP. I'm assuming the two bands are buddies.

    So, I love the vocal deuling in this one, much more pronounced than in a lot of their other stuff. Chris is in almost as much as Bob. The payoff is really good too. I love the way the guitars finally pull together on the closing part.
