jgoose "Tapioca Tadpole" is so incredibly beautiful. That anthemic ending guarantees that I'll be following this band for a long time. The introduction of "You're Not Martin Luther King" weaves and repeats a beautiful twinkly tapestry, and when the horns kick in 30ish seconds in - ooh, sonic bliss! Can't wait to see what's next! Favorite track: Tapioca Tadpole.

Track Name: Tapioca Tadpole
waiting for a moment that i can breathe
feeling for the anger that we release
tangled with the tadpoles from the start
in all these pretty lights we fall apart
dying to grow legs

awful feeling but i never earned it
i wasn't born to be a winner

straight to the point
of no turning back from your teenage decisions
and what they brought
dizzy relations and young imitations of love
who are you when i'm not around
you got me feeling so down
straight to the point
of breakfast in bed when you've woken up dead
they will eat their young
living machines and mechanical dreams of their love
who are you when i'm not around
you got me feeling so down

awful feeling but i never earned it
i wasn't born to be a winner
Track Name: You're Not Martin Luther King!
the pool is deep
and you're afraid
but jumping in
is the only way
to learn to swim
and prove you're brave
in the water we all float away

one day you'll be okay
you've got nothing to lose
in your way it stands strong
in the water it falls into place

crashing upon the shore
surely the waves take aim
without anybody watching
in the water we all float away
Track Name: Domin-Oh-No I Ordered Another Pizza
people do nothing
all the time
hopelessly wondering why
where it will be
as it grows older it hides
slowly convincing
that it's fine
searching for something to find

right and wrong
move along
we don't know where to go
nothing more
hold the door
don't ever let it close
count the stars
up above
wherever you go

hold on for a moment
let it sink in
late at night you worry
you lie awake
thoughts running

searching for something to find

wipe your tears
brush it off
things like this don't cut deep
people fly
all the time
jump off of the earth
