From "Soda Noise" 7", released on Westside Records, Spring 1995.
Recorded by Geoff Streadwick at 40 oz Sound, Winter 1995.

This song had three different titles, named something different on the back cover of the 7", on the label and when we played it live. Can't remember all of them.


This afternoon is solstice weather
Perfect time indeed
A winter's worth of dust
Shaking off my clothes and rugs
Goodbye herbivores, I'm going out
One two three four
Sides to everything
Quick sing-along you won't remember
Side streets that I've memorized
Just to make a map and read upside-down
I was expecting more than by the numbers
One two three four
Silver but better
Never mind the pollen
Cut-out cupid
Perfect time indeed for the limousines
Break down the gymnasium door on the count of five
One two three four
We'll get this right the first time
Never, no
No need to revise
Sent signals hinge our demise
So make up a game to kill some time, huh?
See who can keep the score 'cause I'm losing track now
Rename the emperor and start screaming numbers
One two three four
Slide through everything
Quick celebration, can't think why not
I find it hard to believe that spring is here and nothing has changed
I find it hard to believe nothing's changed.
