you am big you is
mumble stutter stumble
mutter (shapes on

paper, waves in
space) cant care
how hoaky

it is. the sound
alphabet. intentions and
everything. and everything.

o o those finicky
z'infidels, persnicketying
each's whatever and everything

embarrassing histories it's
all so so what now?
sing a rocker. maybe

name it "cant talk"
and oh what a song
it will be and oh

what a difference it
will make. i should
even say it should

most probably be
instumental. gosh
golly god again.

im always eaves-
dropping on these
awkward silences

    General CommentI'm surprised they haven't written an instrumental song called "Can't Talk" yet.

    One of my fave JoA songs.

    General CommentThis song is just so fuckin' catchy. This has been the most recent song of JoA's that I've been listenin to non-stop. Everyweek it seems a new JoA song gets stuck in my head and forces me to play it over and over again.
