lyrics

~tick-tock~
The LOUDEST:
if you're feeling joyful ... HA!
then why'd <glitch state=”contained”>you make your way to my door?</glitch>
it's not like i just dialed you up
but enough small talk
we got us a recant
and there's just one thing left to say

<glitch state=”contained”/>hello you'll feel better
hello you'll feel <glitch state=”contained”>better</glitch>
we'll help you feel better
we'll help you feel BETTER

~a dim glimpse~
The Soapettes:
(party chatter)

a dim Light:
all bets are off
sing “all bets are off” now

~faster now~
the Realization station:
i don't want to yell and i don't want to soldier
since your face already tells me what i'm doing is wrong

but i can't write a song to report the actual crime
when i've already been blessedly marked
i've sealed it with a kiss

i don't want your healing touch
it means put away
i can't stand your helping hand

The LOUDEST:
bite down!

see how feeling joyful
is cutting the same time-line?
we've got a creed for all of your concerns
“just do your best” is one of our best
oh how you love that line

The LOUDEST + the Realization station:
hello you'll feel
hello you'll feel

The LOUDEST:
better ... BETTER

The LOUDEST + the Realization station:
hello you'll feel better
hello you'll feel <glitch state=”unknown”>better</glitch>
we'll help you feel better

the Realization station:
we'll help you feel BETTER

i don't want your healing touch
it means put away
i can't stand your helping hand
lessens every wrong
i don't want your healing touch
i can't stand your helping hand

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
