Story

From Ground Control Magazine interview:

Michael: “We just wanted to be together all the time and I just wanted to write for her. And she was so fucking magic intuitive. I mean, you can hear it on the tracks. Especially the one that closes Disc two, the second version of “Moulding,” which is essentially a rehearsal with me playing through my practice amp and the both of us singing a new song and the whole thing recorded just for reference on my iPhone. For reference. Thank god I have it. Not just because I fucking miss her, but – and this is why it’s on the album and this is why it closes the album – she follows everything I do with the most incredible sensitivity. Her harmony is unusual and perfect – this is why I say Low and X, she’s like Exene or Mimi – and she goes from loud or quiet, light head voice to deep chest voice not just when she hears me go but in the exact instant that I do. It’s not a moment later, it’s right fucking on it. Like telepathy. She knows where I’m going before I do, even..."

- Michael talking about Summer and this track with Ground Control Magazine's Daryl Darko and Elizabeth Madason

Lyrics

Keep pushin' what ya know's untrue
Pushin' me away from you
And right up to the line
Of what's yours and what's mine
Wield your silence to keep me down
So fuckin' sure I'll just hang around
Wait forever for you
Like you're the best I can do
But this time it's not like before
I'll follow the molding around your door
And outside to a world away
Where there's nothing more left to say
Still up to your same old tricks
Nothing one of your lies can't fix
And every one of your friends
Left all at loose ends
You'll drag 'em all into this
With your lingering bitterness
If you can't get your way,
You'll make everyone pay
But this time it's not like before
I'll follow the molding around your door
And outside to a world away
Where there's nothing more left to say...
