No one has even referenced Ben Gibbard's version of this tune. He moves the chords around differently.

You're all fired. I, too, take issue with Ken's grammar change. What is it I'm feeling? Kisses, yours. Am I conscious of multiple sensations? I am not. A vague consciousness do I have of a single, penetrating sensation which could be, possibly, "your kisses"? Perhaps. Strong with the Force are you? ...

That's the one I was thinking of, exactly. I think the membership can be pretty easily defined by the recognizable names around here. I mean, I don't want to punish lurkers, but considering that this band is going on two years since the last record was released and you noble gang of people still che...

I've been wondering whether to start a "fan club" type of group, for special stuff like this. We're working hard on a website redesign, and the new record is going to be pretty neat sounding, so it seems like maybe we should consider enshrining the active members of the board community into some kin...

Sour, that was a fine post 1500. I want those alternate versions to be available to y'all, but I don't want to cheapen the "exclusive bonus tracks" nature of the vinyl. What would you guys like to have happen? If board members want the tracks and Sour or Unremarkable can make it happen I wouldn't ob...

To add to the confusion, Galleta is from Spain, and she was just wondering what "At Loggerheads" meant. Too colloquial an English phrase, dontcha know.

All right, now I can't resist! I'm going to tell, Liesbeth, so run and hide your eyes! "Rice won't grow at home" is a good-natured challenge to the narrator's friend, a pseudo-anti-globalization "activist" who believes that because she grows chard in her backyard garden she's living "off the grid", ...

Spoiler alert, Liesbeth.

Filler!? Filler?!?! There are no "Filler" lyrics in my songs! In "Stupid" the narrator is looking into the future and trying to determine the possible outcomes of either going after the girl or not going after the girl, and in the second verse he's picturing the future as he imagines it with the two...

All this conversation about Scientology is going to get this message board noticed by Scientology and then we're all going to get closed down and flamed and "fair gamed". I, for one, already have too many black sedans parked across the street from my house.
