Liner Notes: 

greetings friends. i had a dream last night in which i encountered a friend i haven't seen in a long time. but the mind portrays ideal versions of the people we care about, and i suppose is a little deceptive in that pursuit. whatever the case, i had to jot down my waking thoughts into lyrics. you can set this to music if you want, but i would personally prefer to reserve this one later for myself.

this was at the corner store, but
