lyrics

And it seems you've learned these lessons to perfection
Any pretense every cost
They're all smiles every time you walk into the room
Where everyone knows everyone and nothing is enough

When you say that you've learned everything you know from me
i can't hear that as a complement
I'd rather paint this story in every shade of black and white
Than admit I saw it coming
Than to know i could prevent it

Won't say goodbye to someone who doesn't know I'm leaving
Won't wait around watching shadows climb the walls
Not trying to change your ways
You can keep all your conversations
I'm not Cassandra
Won't be Sisyphus

And if I've been your silent partner
In your silent game of everything's ok
I've never been the kind of person to give up
That's my failing
That's my failing

So ask me one more time to tell you all about my day
Cross me off your list
See I will make it so much harder than it really is
You're exactly who you've always been and precisely who you'll be

Won't say goodbye to someone who doesn't know I'm leaving
Won't wait around watching shadows climb the walls
Not trying to change your ways
You can keep all your conversations
I'm not Cassandra
Won't be Sisyphus

Combining the pop sensibility of Big Star and narrative observations of Jonathan Richman and Aimee Mann, Everything in Pen’s songs cover many topics---war criminals, sexism, and Dave Eggers--through her unique lens as an obsessive reader. She sings the things you won’t say aloud, of the foolishness, the hopefulness and the almost unbearable humanness of us all. ... more
