These look good with the exception of grammatical errors:

 

I know that it's bad

That it's the kind that they can't operate on

And I know it's real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

Styrofoam coffee cups and bagged drugs that never work enough

And I know its real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

When we were young and hit like hammers

I'd rap the nails in your hands

When 99% of us is failure

There's no going back

And I know its real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

Blackbird come the break of dawn

The TVs on, I turn it off

Walk outside, get in the car

Stare at the wheel and fall apart

 

I get it all the time

Bright eyes to bat and hide behind

But I know they're just for show, honey

Painful and just for show

Black rooms to babysit and white halls to pace and wait for it

And I know it's too slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

When we were young and hit like hammers

I'd rap the nails in your hands

When 99% of us is failure

There's no going back

And I know its real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

Blackbird come the break of day

You swallow the shit that people say

Walk outside look at the sky

Ask it to fall or tell you why

Really? It feels a lot longer. More like 7 minutes. I generally enjoy Matt's long and drawn out songs such as the title track off of Avalanche

My "version" of the song is only 5:33, but who knows how much silence will be left before and after the track on the album.

as for the song, i definitely think it's the best one.

 

i think what i'm finding with this record is that the parts that are supposed to be "big" (i.e. the second part of ASE or the chorus of 99%) don't really sound big at all, they almost sound quieter than the solely acoustic parts. which to me seems out of whack. i don't know, maybe it's just me.

He said when he put up A Single Explosion that the only tracks he had were the unmastered ones.
