"Semantics Of Sermon"

Since I wrote this am I the culprit
These useless wisdoms I dispense
At your expense
Picture postcards
A three minute essay
Some scribbled words to four line verse

Meanwhile, we mean well
We cannot escalate or escape this
So let's pretend our little songs are more than songs
More like sermons

Attention, attention
That's all we're asking for
Our little songs are our little whores
Jukebox cupids -- and the medium's a trend
The music lends itself to it -- to itself
The lyrics bend to make the song

Attention, attention
Don't tell me that's all we're writing for
Picture postcards
Three minute essays
We can never fit in what we want to say

    General CommentQuite possibly the best cursive song, at least on the storms of early summer. The writing manifests Kasher's sentiments with regards to the current music scene and the lyrics he writes; he is somewhat ashamed of what he writes, not able to fully convey what he wants to, while others write idiocy and become the popular trend of the times. Just my thoughts, wish people had others, such a great song.

    General CommentThis was the first Cursive song I heard. Been a fan ever since, obviously. Still one of my favorites...dunno how it wallows in obscurity.
