Track Name: Movement and Location (Punch Brothers)
Did he ever live,
In those three and twenty years,
For a thing but movement and location?

If she'd raised her voice,
Not her sparkling shallow eyes,
To indict my movement and location,
Would the battle be lost?

You can watch the tape,
You can try to hit your spots,
But don't do it for anything but the thrill of movement and location,
Or the battle is lost.
Track Name: Pretty Buildings (People in Planes)
I will dive into my sleep
And I dream of the pretty buildings.
Wonder what she's doing now
And whether she's still living.

Telegraph your point of view
And shepherd me from silence.
Sitting in this fit of rage,
I fall down from my pedestal.

I don't wanna feel this low again.
I ain't gonna steal your flame again.
I don't wanna feel...

'Cause you know it hurts like hell!
So come out of the closet
Let's talk about it
Cause you know it hurts like hell!
That's you in a nutshell

Flowers bloom in harmony
And mixtapes from the 60's.
Fueled by the LSD,
He looks into his future

I don't wanna feel this low again.
I ain't gonna steal your flame again.
I don't wanna feel...

Cause you know it hurts like hell
So come out of the closet
Let's talk about it
Cause you know it hurts like hell
That's you in a nutshell

Morning came and I was dead
Before I left for school
We paint the smiles onto our heads
And keep away from the animals.

And you know it hurts like hell
So when you reach the top
Just throw yourself off
And you know it hurts like hell
And that's you in a nutshell
That's you in a nutshell

And you know it hurts like hell
So come out of the closet
Let's talk about it
And you know it hurts like hell
And that's you in a nutshell
That's you in a nutshell
Track Name: Preconcieved Notions (Ben Smolin)
It’s hard to love a woman right,
You want to make love, you better learn to fight,
That’s what they told me, that’s what they told me,
That’s what they told me when I was young.

Watch out for long-haired boys and their guitars,
Never open your legs until you’ve closed your heart,
That’s what they told me, that’s what they told me,
That’s what they told me when I was young.

Preconceived notions about love,
If you think you know it,
It just means you don’t.

And I’m so sure that I’m right,
(Please be careful what you say)
That I can’t wait to start this fight,
(Once you say it you can’t take it away)
I should have known you’d never understand,
I guess you’re just another woman (man),
You have no idea who I am,
That’s what they told me, that’s what they told me,
That’s what they told me when I was young.

We all have our own ideas,
This is what love should look like,
This is what love is supposed to be,
But no one just wants to play a role,
If we both have all the answers are the right questions being asked,
You’ve got meet me halfway,
Because I love your face, but darling,
It’s not enough to make me stay,
I love your face, but darling,
It’s not enough to make me stay,

Preconceived notions about love,
If you think you know it,
It just means you don’t.
