about

From the album earlyNOP: The First Two LMNOP Albums. This track was originally issued on the first independently released cassette LMNOP.

lyrics

Far beyond all the tress and land
Or beyond all the grains of
Sand.
At a dictionary he was seated
Oddly searching for words
Unknown.

Pages of dictionaries
Alphabetically blinding us are a wall.
There is a spot on the wall
Which can be penetrated by some,
Not by all.

By defining all the words he conquered
All the tasks that were assigned to
Him.
When he came to know the dictionary
He believe it was his only
Friend.

Pages of dictionaries
Alphabetically blinding us are a wall.
There is a spot on the wall
Which can be penetrated by some,
Not by all.

Now the man is in seclusion reaching
For his dictionary with both
Hands.
By removing both his phone and mailbox
He cut ties with everyone
Around.

Pages of dictionaries
Alphabetically blinding us are a wall.
There is a spot on the wall
Which can be penetrated by some,
Not by all.

I turn the pages
Indefinitely.
I find bliss in what I read to myself.

One book is balanced
On the top of my forehead.
One is beneath all my toes.
I made a coffee table by rearranging
All of the books in a row.

These books are good to me.
They're all I'll ever need.

I want to live with a dictionary.
