Holy shit, this is about Bazan grappling with an MLK Jr. quote ("The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice"), as detailed in the podcast he did with Pete Holmes:

David Bazan in his singing voice tried to say but instead wrote:Where at some ever future time
Every wrong will finally be made right


Also, there's no way to write this without being a presumptuous asshole, but a cool alternate lyric in the Dasani song would be:

Bizarro BAZAN wrote:They come together
We come apart


I invite you to shut me the fuck up now.
Criminals are the people we punish for being a nuisance; artists are the people we reward for being a nuisance; successful businessmen are criminals disguised as artists.

Woah woah woah I missed this months-old controversy over here in the tablature thread but hold onto your butts, here. "dave" is incorrect. It's definitely:

Know you'll stare at that face a long time before you wince.

Trust me on this.

THANK YOU THAT WAS MY ORIGINAL TRANSCRIPTION

Sadly I have no irony to give.

As always, you and I are in complete agreement.

Maybe you're just not old enough to know how completely right we are. Or perhaps a vampire.

I think these are about right, but welcome suggestions/corrections.

"Disappearing Ink"
I recreate in the usual way
Shut some breakers off but not the whole box
Next day I fake til the fog finally abates
Again at risk of being bored by cruel thought

Am I asleep? Am I awake?
And why am I asking you?
Do I enjoy the drugs I take?
My love
I hope I do.
I hope I do.

A false binary when it's probably something in between
Pierce the yolk and watch it bleed together
But heavy things we think written in disappearing ink
They may be long gone, but not forever

Am I asleep? Am I awake?
And why am I asking you?
Do I enjoy the drugs I take?
My love
I hope I do.
I hope I do.

"Trouble with Boys"
All your trouble with boys
Like you're making a choice
But still you really don't know
Why they treat you so, so bad

Your stepbrother smirks that it has
Nothing to do with your dad
And you dream that the sound of his voice
Might melt them away, your trouble with boys

And you wonder what he would say
And would it be enough
Either way, you were worthy of love
You were worthy of love
I'm just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind.

Everyone's a critic. ;) HOWEVER, someone else even posted before I did, which I consider a victory on the long path of my crusade.

FW, I agree with most of what you got. I changed a couple words that I hear differently/make more sense to me, changed formatting a bit to match Dave's lyrical style, and then there's a line (maybe two) that I'm not sure on but posted what I heard. Thanks for the help, there were a couple lines I did not hear clearly till after reviewing your post.

Now I just gotta wait for the hammer to fall.

I KNEW that first line was "lord" and not "love" but then I was like...nahhh. Thanks Dave.

Good catch on "heavy things", FW.
