Circle of Friends

Acoustic song included on the Beauty demo tape. Afterwards, Jeff clarifies the meaning of the song, saying, "It's not really about my friends. It's just about the shitty moments between friends at times. But I have some really wonderful friends."

various bootleg rarities collections


No known live performances


Greet all your friends and they say hello
They tie all your ends until they tie
Yourself in again into something whole
Something secure and lost inside

I imply I'm away

All of the forces we uphold
And all of the dangers we escape
You wonder sometimes how long we'll hold
Till all of this anger shows its way

We embrace
I'm OK
I'm OK
I'm OK

There are just some things we can't know
There are just some things you can't face
But I will secure myself and blow [in blue?]
and get this disease that you embrace

and wait
And wait

And beginning again takes so much time
And all of your friends come to watch you go
And as your machine pulls from the drive
You watch as their empty arctics flow

Flow and blow
Flow away
I'm OK
I'm OK
