Don't ask me to spell it out,
I don't even know the rules yet,
It's this nebulous concept and I'm feeling my way
I wish that i could describe it,
But the meaning of the words
Can't put it on my finger on it
Maybe if i said the right thing
Made the perfect sentence
It would all work out
And they'd, just fall in line

When you spell it out
It ruins it

All get in to line
All get in to line

It's always darkest before the dawn
When you seem to lose your way


from Exposition, released March 7, 2011
