All the passionate people
hanging up their shirts
Perfect Pastel Pink

Watch the park board
soak up every inch
Summer in the city

Jump ropers hop in double time
flowers bloom like bombs
Bus driver voices climb
out from the intercom:
“Have a nice one
double check
no one follows you home”

It's a brand new system
We're adopting it with ease
It's a brand new system
I don't really know that much about it
I really don't

But even if I did!
yeah even if I did,
I'd keep it a secret

I'd hold it close 401k
little insurgent paved
in the distant distance
invisible plays

Invisible lines that you didn't draw
all at once
Hang like vines from your gaping jaw
for several months
I watch them sprout
toward my own mouth
and down our wainscoted

That's the story we tell to each other


released July 16, 2016
Written and performed by the Florists.
