let's go undercover like
young lovers should cause
i can kiss you better then
this letter could and you
say at least under these covers
i listen to you and
all this music about you i
hope it find you smiling
again till never begins or
till forver ends
i'll still be lost
in poetics or lost in the mail
can nobody tell you these
guys have a passion for
fashion but are sincere like
a staue and if you have to
choose i am gonna lose i
always do we always do
nostalgia is drunk and
frustration can be gorgeous
but can i keep my mouth shut
cause sometimes
gorgeous can be frustration
when your life is nothing
but a honorable mention
on a radio maybe i'm a
baby but i think it's time to
grow you're everthing i
live for-ever got shorter you
begged me not to go forever
i'll know on a radio better
i'm a quitter than a starry
tortured soul the lips i
kissed now shape songs of
sadness hold me dear
when i'm away and i'll
know when i hear your
name even if i have to sing
it to myself.

    General Commenthow does this song not have one reply. I love this song. the lyrics seem to be wrong though. anyway this song jsut reminds me of my ex girlfreind because i always used to sing the beggining of it to her when we were laying in bed. now i sing the end to myself cause shes not laying in bed with me. frustration can be gorgeous is one of the greatest lines ever.
    this song is just amazing

    General Commenthaha, the Dismemberment plan was belting out creative jewels around the same time that your namesake was making legitimate music (I'll help you out...early 90's). Labels are for people with knowledge on musical history, not for cute little internet aliases (aww...you cry a lot?). You know where you stand? You must like emo music...right?
    I can't even stress how heinous your statement about TDP is, though. According to your list of favorites, you have absolutely nothing credible, creative, original, or even remotely emo involved. How on earth can you even compare those groups to a band of Dismemberment Plan's caliber and notoriously respectable D.C. background? Chris Carabba was potty-training when The Plan were releasing their first album...and you were probably still nursing at your mother's teat like a little chimpanzee.

    "i am NOT emo. i am nothing."
    Generally people with the DIY mindset don't label themselves according to genres.
    I guess it's true what they say about simple minds. You can only truly appreciate that which your mind has a capacity to absorb.
    Your insular viewpoints are a throbbing incentive to never return to the free-sharing forums of arcane indie-pop.

    And one last question: How would breaking my fingers affect my ability to verbalize opinions? You think the internet is my sole haven for bombastic reprimands?
    Peace...console yourself with both soft pillow and soft music. Don't be concerned with perplexity that you can't possibly ascertain (coupled with lyrical content that exceeds your plane).

    General CommentI would like to say that song is great and I love Dismemberment Plan. Very different and it's just good. And I think Braid is deffently better than Hey Mercedies but I still love them.
