The first track off the Andy the Doorbum side of the Andy the Doorbum/Yardwork split 7 inch on Self Aware Records.


It says to take one, so I take ten.
It don't seem wrong until I fall.
For thirteen years I couldn't remember a thing.
Suddenly I can see it all.

It says "take one" so I take ten.
Who knows if I'll ever see anyone again.
Oh, but I told them I would call.

When I get to a place where they have phones.
Out in the Arctic building steeples.
There isn't any place in this whole world
Free of gods or people.
We've slept too long here in the lion's den.
It says "take one." Oh, but we take them all.
There's nothing left now but a hole to Hell.
How much you wanna bet we fall?

It says "take one" so I take ten.
Who knows if I'll ever see anything again.
And will it matter then at all?

They cut us all a deal on sheep skin.
And for them we built up a mighty wall.
Evolved to run at miraculous speeds.
What does that matter when we crawl in a stall?

It says "take one" so I take ten.
