"Motion Suggests" as written by and Stephen Malkmus....
I traced my family line
It ends up where the
Window-passing grainy days
Forgetting she's away
Here's the straight and narrow
Brought my wheelbarrow
And it's filled with the lies
And the dirt and the hurt
But I won't need someone to let me be
I won't need someone to let me be
Up up the counting thrones
And the voice could soothe your
Captivate the senses like a ginger ale rain
Those who've got the mirror
Curse the tainted pharaohs
Take off!
Respect fun, you might learn how it runs
But I won't need someone to let me be
No I won't need someone to let me be [x2]
No I won't need someone to let me go
Let me breathe

    General CommentA song about liberation, the lonely freedom of old age, a self centered relationship with no strings attached, or lessons learned after years of trying to live up to Frank Capra's sagging dictums." - Malkmus

    General CommentThis song is so great... you can tell he was stoned when he wrote it... but its not laced with boring stoner garbage cliches, The mellotron/keys in this song really complete it. "Let me breathe"... flying solo was cool once.. make it cool again.
