"Vermont" as written by Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn, Steve Mark Pedersen and Clint Frederick Schnase....
Staring up at stars
From the back seat of a stationwagon
Carving the night
Trees keep marching by
Light poles blur into a stream
Blazing laser beams

All
These
Stars

My thoughts are trivial pursuits
My heart's a bomb that's been defused
What now?

There's no more use for me
I'm wasting energy
Muscles are weaklings
Thoughts just defeat me
Numbness is effortless
I could get used to this

Driving through Vermont
Overwhelmed by the insignificance
My conscience was my crutch
For a heightened existence
This other wordliness

These
Schoolboy
Lies

I've been deprived reality
Brought up by holy ghosts and saints
What now?

I'm the delinquent here
I'm the contagious one
This heart is hopeless
I feel the numbness
All Hail The Atheist
I could get used to this
I could get used to this
I could get used to this
I could get used to this

    General Commenti think this is another song showing tim's refutation of his catholicism. what with the reference to 'holy ghosts and saints' and the progression from "schoolboy" beliefs to adulthood; he cannot find answers to all those 'grown-up' questions. Religion seems to be a prevalent theme, what with references in songs such as Pulse, and many others, too.
