Track Name: You & I
peter had a brother but i don’t know the name
the things that i remember are the things that always change
you and i keep running an allegoric cave
made our minds with trouble and fun

peter had a lover so he bought a decent ring
he put it on her finger and he told her decent things.
you and i went driving in a rusty old van
as the night told stories we drove.

you and i, we’re always wasting time, you and i.
you and i combine and make time lines, you and i.

peter lost his firsts, made his seconds playing games
tried to find a reason by believing he was saved
you and i write letters each and every way
mixing down down down down down.

you and i, we’re always wasting time, you and i.
you and i combine and make time lines, you and i.

everything is precious, you and i.
