  • Counting all different ideas drifting away
    Past and present, they don't matter
    Now the future's sorted out
    Watch, you're moving in elliptical pattern
    Think it's not what you say
    What you say is way too complicated
    For a minute thought I couldn't tell how to fall out

    It's twenty seconds 'til the last call, going hey hey hey hey hey hey
    Lie down, you know it's easy like we did it all summer long
    And I'll be anything you ask and more, going hey hey hey hey hey hey
    It's not a miracle we needed, and no I wouldn't let you think so
    Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
    Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it

    Girlfriend, you know your girlfriend's drifting away
    Past and present, eighteen-fifty-five to nineteen-and-one
    Watch them build up a material tower
    Think it's not gonna stay anyway
    Think it's overrated
    For a minute, thought I couldn't tell how to fall out

    It's twenty seconds to the last call, going hey hey hey hey hey
    Lie down, you know it's easy, like we did it all summer long
    And I'll be anything you ask and more, going hey hey hey hey hey
    It's not a miracle we needed, and no, I wouldn't let you think so
    Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
    Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it

  • Dan from New York, NyI really liked the digital sounds over the organic rock guitars and drums, and it's a good tune all around. The lyrics actually do sound like they were written in 10 minutes... or rather that they retain a nonsensical quality (a mashup of different song meanings all rolled into one cryptic pop tune) they seem to have mastered.
