Flint A more surreal, almost stream-of-consciousness bend on the previously established Foresters writing style - an indie pop album from a cartoon hallucination. Favorite track: Mr. Naomi's Eagle Book.

Jason Seiple I saw these fine fellows play a show a couple of years ago, and I had an awesome time. At the time, they played this really awesome song where they sang "I don't like you, you don't like me," that I really dug the hecking dang doggos out of, but I could never figure out what release it was on.

Well, now they have recorded and released an album with that song (202), and it's awesome. This album is awesome. The Foresters are fine fellows and are pretty awesome. Favorite track: 202.

Track Name: Faux Southern Charm
I suppose
That the world turns backwards, forwards, and whichever way she goes
I don't wanna speak up 'cause I'm afraid
Of all these chances that I thought I could take

She don't wanna make love
She just thinks of what to say and then she spits it right out in my face
She don't like to come down
Which is really just a shame, 'cause she's still spinning me round, round, round, round

Now I don't really like to talk to her
And I​ don't really even think of her
And it's a shame, 'cause what she wanted me to get is still at the back of the closet with my friends

She don't wanna make love
She just fishes for excuses and gets by with her faux southern charm
She don't wanna stay high
And it's really just a shame​ because her bruise is still right on my arm

She's a girl now
She's a girl now
She's a girl now
She's a girl now
Track Name: 202
I was just a boy
Sitting on the A-train
Drinking marmalade when I lost my way
I had seen this before
On the television
So not to break tradition, I'll put it like this

I'm happy to walk away
I don't like you
You don't like me
I know where I'm gonna stay
I don't like you
You don't like me
You don't like me
202

I leaned into your ear
To plant some seedy wisdom
To help restore the kingdom, you need to leave
A farmer's hand reaching out
Throwing colored paper
I guess I'll see you later (or not at all)

I'm happy to walk away
I don't like you
You don't like me
I know where I'm gonna stay
I don't like you
You don't like me
You don't like me
202

This is the part where you regret everything that you've done
Mother, why'd you think of taking on your only son
Let it go
Will someone, anybody, everybody please shut up

I'm happy to walk away
I don't like you
You don't like me
I know where I'm gonna stay
I don't like you
You don't like me
You don't like me
202
Track Name: Win With Both Eyes
We spread out wide
Like mice in a meeting
We're on the way
And the distance is fleeting and I can see
Approaching me

There's a riot on the football field
There's a riot and I'm feeling greedy
There's a riot on the football field
There's a riot and I want to meet you

I know it's not the first time
That you’ve spit in my eye
Well I can win with both eyes
So don't look out the wrong side
Number one

I said it once
But to make sure you heard me
We're number one
Although our hands are dirty, and it's up to you
To finally see through

There's a riot on the football field
There's a riot and it's getting started
There's a riot on the football field
There's a riot and I want to meet you

I know it's not the first time
That you’ve spit in my eye
Well I can win with both eyes
So don't look out the wrong side
Number one

So this is how
It's all growing to be
Our hands held out
But the cup is all empty and it's not right
As we lose light

There's a riot on the football field
There's a riot and it's raging onwards
There's a riot on the football field
There's a riot and I want to meet you

I know it's not the first time
That you’ve spit in my eye
Well I can win with both eyes
So don't look at the wrong side

I know we have our first times
Where we don’t see eye to eye
But we make this alright?
Just don't look out the wrong side
Number one
Track Name: Sand Marches
Sleeping on the floor
Never even trying anymore
I've got The Meadowlands playing on repeat again
Is it your reply that's killing me?
I'm just overthinking probably

I never meant for this to happen
I ask you, my friend
Could you turn me off and turn me on again?
Well, am I learning, am I certain?
I ask you, my friend
Could you turn me off and turn me on again?

Stayed over at my friend's
Of course, I'm​ waiting for the night to end
I’m one to complain but everybody's sad these days
Got my whole future mapped out for me
Cause decline has no uncertainty

I never meant for this to happen
I ask you, my friend
Could you turn me off and turn me on again?
Well, am I learning, am I certain?
I ask you, my friend
Could you turn me off and turn me on
Could you turn me off and turn me on
Could you turn me off and turn me on again?
Track Name: Mr. Naomi's Eagle Book
Look at you, on the park bench
You're a baby I know you write a book
You want to have a good old look
At the outside, but your mama says you can't come out
You sit on your chair and start to pout
Know I can’t forget

Perhaps another eagle is ok
Mr. Naomi says "no way"
But we all say
Perhaps another eagle is stronger
Mr. Naomi says "ok"
But I can’t wait much longer

You grow a beard, every weekday
And you shave it off before you go to bed
I watch as you hack away at your head
I can't even stand the little children on your face
Collecting everything that gave you grace
And my, my, my, my

Perhaps another eagle is ok
Mr. Naomi says "no way"
But we all say
Perhaps another eagle is stronger
Mr​. Naomi says "ok"
But I can’t wait much longer

Perhaps another eagle is ok
Mr. Naomi says "no way"
But we all say
Perhaps another eagle is stronger
Mr. Naomi says "ok"
But I can’t wait much longer
Track Name: Village Effect
It's a classic case of the old village effect
Your friend's friend is the friend of the guy who greets you when you walk in every day
You always want to bring up little notions like this
The world's a web and you said you're a fly just trying to get out of the way

And I know what I said’s what I say
How you make me work this way
And I'm up on the rubbing my eyes
Turn my head and turn a right
And I can see straight for miles
I can see straight for miles
I can see straight for miles
I can see

It's the case of the decade changing and it's freaking you out
How can it be when these few years have barely had a chance to show what they stand for?
It's so hard to convince yourself that it's gonna be great
It might get to the point where you think there's no point in convincing anymore

But that isn't how it's going to be
You don't have to pack up and leave
I found a jacket from 3 years ago
I'm walking out into the snow
And I can see straight for miles
I can see straight for miles
I can see straight for miles
I can see
I can see
I can see oh whoa whoa whoa
Track Name: Hospital Friends
Now, you don't have to lie
You're not by my side
You left to find better things
I sit by the road
With nowhere to go
I like it this way

We have bad days and I'm just getting ready for accepting the fact that it's come to an end
But you'll still have time
To make hospital friends

Oh, it's some kind of trick
You played on us
I didn't know if you were kidding
But now, it's come to be
Something out of reach
We're not who we thought we would be

The road will get windy and tires will get muddy and it won't change anything if you lose your car
But you'll still have time
To make hospital friends

Being alone so very far from home is something I've never felt but I can adjust
And you'll still have time
To make hospital friends
Track Name: King of the Barn Raising
Scan the pier with your eyes
Head inside and then see what you can find here
Later now, sun's gone down
You're on the hill, counting things that you hold dear

And without the intention of finding it all out
You say that you can’t and you stamp, and you scream, and you shout

So come on let's try to figure it out
We still got time without a doubt
I know you're able
Because you're stable now
So come on, let's try to figure it out

There's just one height where no suit fits just right, and that's the height that you've been at
Your fresh new face
Was soon erased
By the kids on their bikes down in the flats

And one comes in wearing Ticonderoga jeans
And you've never seen that, so you point, and you stare, and you scream

So come on let's try to figure it out
We still got time without a doubt
I know you're able
Because you're stable now
So come on, let's try to figure it out

And now you're gone again
You’ve tried to make the ends all meet
My friend, you'll never find the truth that is hidden on this beach
When the water hits, man you'll see something

So come on let's try to figure it out
We still got time without a doubt
I know you're able
Because you're stable now
So come on, let's try
Come on, let's all try
We're all supposed to try
And figure it out
