Everything went south for a very long while. 8 years, 8 years. Album #2 is here. If you gave & give two shits, then thank you.

Peep us at The Grammys.

lyrics

When we took up our things, we went off to the others
To take up their things and go off with each other
The world is a place, oh, and that's where we left it
To sit in its space and to never quite get it
And, I'll bet your life
That you'll bet your life
When the times seem alright
But still never just quite right
'Cause, oh god, it's a plan that the world's already planned for
In a perfect idea to keep everyone here
For the dirtiest, worstest, belief, or bad, temper-glad, whole, long, haul

And, the letters we wrote they were never real letters
'Cause, if nobody gets them, then that's all for the better
And I know that.

So, blurry our clutches on family's one dollar
And tempting the notion of I should have been taller
So that I could have reached up and got what's above me
Petal or steel or romantic

I'll still I'll bet your life
That you'll bet your life
When the time seems alright
But, never just quite right

So, having us our babies, and rocking the manic
For all the pants they'll have to wear on this planet
'Cause people don't grow up when people can't be
One more I'd bet my life
That you'd bet your life
That I'd bet my life
That you'd bet your life
That I'd bet my life
That you'd bet your life
That I'd bet my life
That you'd bet your life
That I'd bet my life

Molly Shannon, Molly Shannon Portland, Oregon

msms, much to the bewilderment of them both, are still fucking alive & making noise together. Hearts are frail. This body is a complex project. I don't want to work. I wish I never had to. Night Language is here.
