about

This one started as an acoustic jam in my living room, Kelly on guitar, me on bass, then I took the idea, wrote a change and lyrics, and we recorded it. It's about the feeling that you can see the way things should be if you could just get a little distance, step away from yourself, and fix all the things you get wrong.

lyrics

Start with the facts
Use details much too small
Substitute white for black
Say you called or didn't call
Try and get the rewrite right
Find the misc-en-scene
Trap the corner with the light
Say you know what makes us lean

Taller. Faster. Ready to get it right

Pickups in the fading light
Flickers on the screen
Stage directions: "drive all night"
Hope that this take's clean
Close it down and make the rounds
Hands and shoulders, minds and hearts
The art is in the trying
The acting's just a part

Better. Later. When we fall asleep

limesix Orlando

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
