    favorite lyrics / lines from this album at this time. not necessarily how they were sung or the music that accompanies them, but just the writing itself:

    "I'm not afraid of being alone, I just don't know what to do with my time"

    "I'm not that spiritual I still go out all the time to department stores"

    "I know I can get attached and then unattached to my own versions of others"

    "Sometimes I don't think I'm really around here half the time, sometimes I don't think I'm really around here at all"

    "Don't you know someday somebody will come and find you? If you don't know who you are anymore, they will remind you"

    "Underwater you're almost free"

    "there's a little bit of hell in everyone"

    Can I measure your tree?

    "I will love you like there's razors in it" / "there's never really any safety in it" one of my faves

    Do You Remember?

    "There's never really any safety in it" is probably my favorite line and delivery on the album.

    Even though I have no idea what it means, I love "there are police in the museum" because it's delivered in such a cool way.

    yeah, there's a lot of lines that i like the delivery on but can't say they're a favorite or that they mean anything to me because i have no idea what it's supposed to mean and it just ends up making me more confused than anything else lol

    The Maplethorpe exhibit at the Cincinnati Creatives Arts Center in the early 90s!

    I love that line. Even without knowing what it’s actually alluding to, it conjures up some striking imagery in my mind.

    Do You Remember?

    Funnily enough, I saw the Smith exhibit honoring Maplethorpe at the Cincinnati Modern Art museum (might be butchering the actual name of it) in 2013 while on a week long Reds watching trip. I knew the Patti/Robert connection but didn’t know about the obscenity law issues that that line is referencing.

    Not Kyle Shanahan Prestigious

    This album is such a grower that I’ve upped it from “Perfect 10/10 - the Nationals 6th best album” to “Perfect 10/10 - the Nationals 4th best album”

    The way Matt is referring to California on Rylan is definitely in the vain he uses “Californians” in All the Wine and I love shit like that

    Since so many of you asked it’s

  18. arewehavingfunyet


    While we're talking about delivery and lyrics - I really enjoy Matt's delivery accompanied by the music at this part in "The Pull of You"

    "Maybe we'll talk it out inside a car
    With rain falling around us
    We all know this rain is hard to take"

    Not my favorite song on the record but that could be my favorite moment.

    I think this is a major step up from Sleep Well Beast, which I do like but I just find this album to be better in quality. On par with their best work no doubt.
