The Parents EP!
1. We Took the BART: I don’t need to drive a car. I got some money on a plastic card. Anywhere you want across the bay—just make sure you don’t stay too late! Carpet floors and computer voice, sliding doors and a screeching noise—if the future’s got a little grime, at least you know the train will come on time. We took the BART! To Fruitvale, 16th St, West Oakland, North Berkeley, to Pittsburgh, Powell St, MacArthur, Walnut Creek! My favorite transportation, no matter what’s your station. Wherever I need to be, I take the B-A-R-T. BART! Cuz I don’t need to drive a car! I got some money on a plastic card! Anywhere you want across the bay—just make sure you don’t stay too late! To Colma, and Dublin, to Millbrae, or Orinda, San Bruno, or Ashby, to Concord, or Daly City! My favorite transportation, no matter what’s your station. Wherever I need to be, I take the B-A-R-T. We took the BART!
2. Make It True or Crush: You're so clean, I can't bear to touch you, but I do. You're so far, I can barely reach you. If I did, I don't know what I would do with you. You're so kind, bet you'd bring her flowers. Bet you'd talk for hours. Bet you'd never doubt her. If you're so smart, won't you teach me to tell the truth? And I could show you how to make it true. It's funny how we fall in love. You know you're out to get you. Don't think of how, just think of now. You close your eyes and crush me. Who's looking now? The game is up. See how I turn the tables! Oh won't you teach me how to tell the truth and make it fable? My goodnight wish, your hello kiss, your face asleep and vulnerable. Just tell me how I can make you notice! I can't believe I’d have to tell you all this! It couldn't be more clear, when you crush me like this. And if I could make you laugh forever... if I could make you mine, for whatever it would take to make it true.
3. How to Speak Italian Like an English Tourist: non mi piacciono (pee ah chi noh) (i) telefononi. sono sporcissimi, ay strappati, ay roh-tee. voul-darmi-il suo ("swo") numeronay di telefonone? parliamo di potatone; spiegarmi la farfalone. provo difficolta' a respirare. mi gira la testa!

4. Circles: We chase in circles and I can't tell who is the tail, who has the teeth. You are always just around the bend. You are always just out of reach. Let it go, and it goes around. After you're gone, your gravity weighs me down, Can't let go. Can't catch my breath. The distance stays like you never left. We talk in circles like we're under the bell. I'd shout ‘round the world if it would turn your head. My breathless silence sends you around the bend. The silence remains like you never did. Let it go, and it goes around. After you're gone, you still shut me down. Can't let go. Can't catch my breath. The silence remains like you never left. We move in circles of love and deceit. You try to wrap me all around you, but I'm quick on my feet. And then you're off, and I know where you've been, because it's all the same circle when you get down to it. Let it go, and it goes around. After you're gone, you turn my world upside down. Can't let go. Can't catch my breath. The hurt remains like you never left.
