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.

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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
