lyrics

All your thoughts organized by colour
and all your colours organizing my thoughts
Wind and water tousling each other
Words and ideas pressed into a slingshot

I see you coming
I see you coming
I see your left leg running

I see the river
I see the river
I feel the water rushing

So you can calculate away
you can crunch numbers all day
build clouds of smoke
and trains of thought,
the locomotion of the underpaid
but your script cannot compare
to the scattered, the unprepared
words you spoke
unbroken chains of thought
in the low commotion of the parking lot

You’ve got a pretty good eye of aesthetics
but I’ve never seen you looking so flourescent
I know it gets hard to discern waste
when maybe there's still a time and a place
but your eyes were open wide
and the light was harsh and unkind
so you shut up, you shut down
you spent your time just hanging around

so you can calculate away
you can crunch numbers all day
build clouds of smoke
and trains of thought
for the emotionally underpaid
but your script cannot compare
to the scattered and unprepared
words you chose
unbroken chains of thought
in the low commotion of the the parking lot

As I fade away, I watch you hesitate

Why don’t you calculate away?
You can crunch numbers all day
build clouds of smoke
and trains of thought
the locomotion of the underpaid
but your script cannot compare
to the scattered, the unprepared
words you chose
unbroken chains of thought
in the low commotion of the the parking lot
you faded out of focus

about

The Utilities Lethbridge, Alberta

Their work is genuine. They have been making music together for the better part of a decade with sounds drawing from folk and Can-rock. Their take on guitar-heavy indie is both familiar and forward-thinking.
