about

This is a recording of The Wire Frames' performance on May 8, 2012, at Iowa Public Radio's Studio One. It was for a play-in competition to get to the main stage at 80/35, a music festival in Des Moines. Alas, it was not to be for our humble heroes, but it was a great experience nonetheless. (I didn't know if that was one word, but it isn't being auto-corrected. The more you know.)

Download comes with four bonus photos, none of which are particularly great.

Track Name: Sorts [live @ IPR]
Falling backwards, walking circles all across my mind
Finding patterns, tracing over looks and prideless lines
There's a timeline, dates and weapons, but the motive's lost
We had the ending predetermined, but forgot the plot

When I think of things that I've started
I want to get them all off my chest
Warm up vocal cords then I'll shout it
Getting ready to make my point, but then I forget

The cumulonimbus have passed, now can I go outside?
Be there by six. Well where was I? Forgot my alibi.
Dissect the recall frame by frame then sort it and distill
I let the thief in, dropped my guard, then gladly watched her steal

When I think of things that I've started
I want to get them all off my chest
Warm up vocal cords then I'll shout it
Getting ready to make my point, but then I forget

When I comes to all I've said and done
The only thing that I've done wrong
Is put it off another day
Now, what was I going to say?
Track Name: A Coffee Song [live @ IPR]
Dark roast
And while chocolate mocha
Soy milk cappucino
Maybe a breve
Or something in between
They all started off as coffee beans
Possibly organically
Hopefully traded fairly
For anyone inovolved

Caffeine is running through my veins
Speeding up my heart rate and keeping me awake
I have only one complaint
All of my teeth are stained
Caffeine is running through my veines
Speeding up my heart rate and making me insane
Coffee is all I want to taste
I'll have the flavor of the day

There's some differentiation
In their preparation
Giving false sensations of superiority
Your pick depends on your palate
Remeber not to forget
That it doesn't make
Anybody wrong

Caffeine is running through my veins
Speeding up my heart rate and keeping me awake
I have only one complaint
All of my teeth are stained
Caffeine is running through my veines
Speeding up my heart rate and making me insane
Coffee on every single break
Is giving me a case of the shakes
Track Name: No Vaccination [live @ IPR]
I take it back
The brush off and all regrets
Forget my listless regards
Now dancing down boulevards is all I want

So here's the catch
Common knowledge and distress
It's not that I want you back
It's just you're the one I miss

Oh, it's not over
I've got problems; You're my disorder
And there's no vaccination
Or known cure for this fixation

I take it back
The curses and all the rest
Effervescent memories
Are prolonging this disease

Oh, it's not over
I've got problems; You're my disorder
And there's no vaccination
Or known cure for this fixation
Track Name: Cottonwood (No Lie) [live @ IPR]
It's kind of funny, I guess
The way you always call me Casanova
In jest when I pull you close

It seems apparent that my lies
Are more than just have truths
But trust me, darling, when I say
That I love you

That's no lie

You bite your lip and wait with anticipation
Of ever-afters, and my taste
Upon your tongue

The backs of eyelids are painted
With curves and soft-glow lights
The sweet release from this brain's
Lullabies

That's no lie
Track Name: Orchid Eyes [live @ IPR]
Organize the orchid eyes comes Tuesday
A lily lip-lock under the pear tree
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter running off your windshield
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter running down your cheek

All I know
Is I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you

Missing all the cracks, my god you're gracefull
A glowing beauty burning through the streets
We're just children hiding in the grapevines
Wine and a bed for two is hard to beat

All I know
Is I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you
And all I know
Is it's helping me, too
And I'm waiting for June
And I'm ready for you
