8​:​18 (album version)

from To The Donkeys Of Barron Park EP by The Corner Laughers



Music by Khoi Huynh, Karla Kane and Angela Silletto. Lyrics by Khoi Huynh


From the windows of College Terrace
To the ushers in the dark
From the Hewlett Packard heiress
To the donkeys of Barron Park
In Peet's and in Piazza's
The stars no longer shine
The protesters of Lytton Plaza
Have set aside their signs

In 8 minutes, 18 seconds the sun will touch our skin
Vitamin D, in spite of windy, rainy weather
We'll still be together
And poppies will bloom once again

No movies at the Aquarius
And the fountain ceased its spout
And in the old libraries
The last book has been checked out
The letters on the marquee
Say we'll be back in the spring
As we sit here in the dark we
Don't believe a thing

The nights we spent in Midtown
The days of deviled egg
The Mormon tire breakdown
The grape juice by the keg

We'll walk down University
With no adversity
And poppies will bloom once again
