From the upcoming full-length album Weird Plastic


Ice storm, don’t tell me what’s necessary;
When I walk outside I’ll see just how it feels.
Go slow, where you need to be you’re gunna get there.
I’ll just figure it out alone.

Ice storm, you’re just going through the motions aren’t you?
Up tight, take it easy and you’ll see:
Bright lights and the echoes of your neighbors calling
To let you know that it’s safe out there.

Even if I wake up and it’s all inside;
Hold down all my feelings ‘bout the other night.
Write down all the places that I’ve been to
In my dreams and all the things that happen.

I don’t want to wake up and be cold again.
It’s been like this for weeks and I can hardly stand.
Find my feet and fingers buried under
Piles of stripes and clothes from the summer.

Ice storm, don’t tell me what’s necessary ‘bout it.
Fine wine and the comfort of my home
Quite different from the turmoil on the television,
Just keep your head down and wait it out.

Ice storm, stuck out holding onto hope and heating;
Flipped cars on the sides of the highway.
Dead stop in the middle of a clearing with no
Sight of ending, or tears in time.
