lyrics

~for demonstration purposes~
the Soapettes:
(party chatter)

a dim Light:
so this is how we demonstrate
that we're just broken machines
singing 'bout our parts unknowingly

~Soapette realization~
The Soapettes + the Realization station + a dim Light:
and we are so fortunate in everything ....

the Realization station + a dim Light:
why?

the Realization station:
so we tell lies, beautiful lines
but even believed completely
don't make a life
don't make it right

the Realization station + a dim Light:
and lies as comforting rhymes
just time and words repeating
can't be a “why”
so don't make them mine

~yes vs. no~
the Realization station:
oh yeah?!

a dim Light:
oh no?! but oh ...

the Realization station + a dim Light:
yeah yeah yeah .... yeah!
no no no .... no!
let go!

The LOUDEST + a dim Light:
1, 2, 3

a dim Light:
4!
the Realization station + a dim Light:
but how? and who?

~yes + no~
no .... yeah!

~exeunt~

about

in giro Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

on the move, in motion, out and about: that's “in giro”, and that we are. we pick up things in our travels, pluck them from limbs, absorb or excavate or simply remember them, and during layovers we stitch these together and sing. being in giro is being with change, and ever-seeking we make music that ever-seeks. ... more
