I'm all turned around I'm all twisted up I'm disoriented Can't you see? I don't know the route Can't tell north from south Don't have a map To guide me The hemispheres of my brain Don't recognize this terrain And the quadrants of my heart Know we shouldn't be apart You're the prime meridian And I'm an idiot I've lost my bearings I can't tell the time It's a question of degrees Minutes and history Gonna find my way Back to you Gonna find my way back to you I can't navigate I can't see the stars Things look different Beneath the frost It is way too dark I am so alone Need to find you soon Or all is lost You're the prime meridian And I'm an idiot I've lost my bearings I can't tell the time It's a question of degrees Minutes and history Gonna find my way Back to you Gonna find my way back to you

Synthesize Empathize You'll never see me if you only use your eyes On command I'll be damned Just 'cause you listen doesn't mean you understand No Unrequited's hard to rhyme No I Wish we had more time Impressive but not admirable Incurable but not fatal You make my knees go weak And my heart grow strong I know its not unique I can't stay here very long You make my knees go weak And my heart grow strong I'm on a losing streak I can't stay here very long Clarity Sobriety I don't know if these things work for me So far behind Stuck with the rind Without you I don't have peace of mind No Unrequited's hard to rhyme No I Wish we had more time Impressive but not admirable Incurable but not fatal You make my knees go weak And my heart grow strong I know its not unique I can't stay here very long You make my knees go weak And my heart grow strong I'm on a losing streak I can't stay here very long Impressive but not admirable Incurable but not fatal Well maybe fatal

The 1 Dream 03:21
I don’t have a lot of patience I don’t have a lot of anything So let’s cut the crap and get right to the point This is the one dream This is the New York City skyline This is the last thing I will ever write to you And I know that you know how I feel And I know that you know what to do I am easily flattered I am easily led astray But I don’t mind and who cares if I do? This is the new deal This is a moment frozen in time I don’t remember Anything before you smiled And I know that you know what I know Da-da-da da da da da da da I don’t know who you think you’re dealing with You’re not a very good actor You know I’d love you better You know I’d love you better I don’t have a lot of patience I don’t have a lot of anything So let’s cut the crap and get right to the point This is the new deal This is a moment frozen in time I don’t remember Anything before you smiled And you know that I know that you know I’d love you better You know I’d love you better You know I’d love you better Do you remember the first time we kissed It was the last time we kissed Well I guess it’s the thought that counts

The second time It wasn't an accident The second time It wasn't just random After all, it was the second time You knew what you wanted You knew what you were doing And I was happy to oblige The second time It wasn't coincidence The second time It didn't just happen You can't deny, it was the second time With no hesitation And no second-guessing And I was happy to oblige Tell me what am I supposed to do? Do I know the real you? Do you want to catch that bus? Do you believe in us? The second time It wasn't a mistake The second time It wasn't so sudden We were glad it was the second time It wasn't the alcohol It wasn't the zodiac It wasn't a slip n' fall It wasn't a heart attack

I'm not afraid of you I'm not going to hide From the truth But sometimes I get so tired I know That's something you understand I had a dream last night I'm not proud of that But I've never been burdened With pride Don't act shocked I t's not a good look on you Your bedside manner Could use some polish That's not the only thing that I wish I could change about you I'd make you love me I ride along the boundary I keep them in And I keep them out I'm the go-between I can live with that - oh yeah I can live with that - oh yeah

about

“The 1 Dream” EP is the second in a planned series of releases. The pandemic slowed it down, but it's here at last! There are 5 songs here featuring the trademark Pickpockets gamut - a majestically building opener, punk rock energy, jangly indie pop. It's all here, including horns and strings! We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
