Track Name: Absofacto & 10k Cities - Kiko (103 Words)
Yesterday I wrote everything I know down in a notebook
as a person of the past
for future hands to flip through
while scraping all the dirt from my incisors
paying more attention to the fine details of the here and the now
than anyone who's actually here now

and one hundred and three words
is not enough to get me over that chasm
(that chasm, it's keeping here from there)
if I can't fold 'em over I want to smash 'em together

Scurrying around like the ant I am
viewed through the window of the first class seat
you undoubtedly lucked into
All that extra elbow room is being made poor use of by
the boardroom bombshell sitting right next to you,
while counting the weeks till the future comes.

and one hundred and three words
is not enough to get me over that chasm
(that chasm, it's keeping here from there)
if I can't fold 'em over I want to smash 'em together till they're just dirt
Track Name: 80844264@81 (Love Song)
bent...
i'm already on your list
but i won't settle, i won't settle for...
hot outside, better not go now
all the keys to your castle, i lost 'em
down in the bottom of some dry well...
help me out, help me out, help me out

and if you trust me i can drag you to a new low
where the gaudy wristwatch wrapped round your arm can slow
all your so-called Flippist friends all got to be
holding on okay next to me

silos full of mirrors springing up everywhere with a hard steel lock
i am gonna break my way into every single one to show to you
how much you mean

and if you trust me i can hold you in a new way
till the calculator batteries all melt away
if you feel vaguely lethal, in a sense,
more or less, nevermind, i digress...

silos full of mirrors springing up everywhere with a hard steel lock
i am gonna break my way into every single one to show to you
how much you mean
no really, you do
i'm a lens broke in two to the tenth power
even through facets i can see, over a kaleidoscopic scene,
your head, your arms, your teeth, your necks,
your rubber checks, your evil eye

i'm still on your side, but out of sight and out of mind
