In the suburbs I
I learned to drive
And you told me we'd never survive
Grab your mother's keys we're leavin'

You always seemed so sure
That one day we'd fight in
In a suburban world
your part of town gets minor
So you're standin' on the opposite shore
But by the time the first bombs fell
We were already bored
We were already, already bored

Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm movin' past the feeling
Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm movin' past the feeling again

Kids wanna be so hard
But in my dreams we're still screamin' and runnin' through the yard
And all of the walls that they built in the seventies finally fall
And all of the houses they build in the seventies finally fall
Meant nothin' at all
Meant nothin' at all
It meant nothin

Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm movin' past the feeling
Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm movin' past the feeling and into the night

So can you understand?
Why I want a daughter while I'm still young
I wanna hold her hand
And show her some beauty
Before this damage is done

But if it's too much to ask, it's too much to ask
Then send me a son

Under the overpass
In the parking lot we're still waiting
It's already passed
So move your feet from hot pavement and into the grass
Cause it's already passed
It's already, already passed!

Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm movin' past the feeling
Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm movin' past the feeling again

I'm movin' past the feeling
I'm movin' past the feeling

In my dreams we're still screamin'
We're still screamin'
We're still screamin'

8:53 A.M.


Wave like home,
through my ears and behind my eyes,
I feel safe
surrounded by others, calm and quiet at their desks
The small noises are peaceful and beautiful and
Loud, if you listen.

I listen
I feel

disconnected

The open window,
Humid breeze against my eyelids,
Light rain falling onto leaves outside
are my only reality.

It's a comforting thought
like listening to the ocean break against a fortress-
My peace is my own.

Future Islands 3 from Zach Kaufmann on Vimeo.

Baltimore synthpop band Future Islands, recently signed to Thrill Jockey, plays "Walking Through That Door" off their upcoming album, In Evening Air.




and as we say goodnight, i hold you close and tight
no more raging suns, only waning ones
like the waxing scar where my lonely heart
once bloomed before i met you

my little dreamer, i'll always
always dream of you
