From This Might Be A Wiki
Hey everyone! John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants here. 
We are very excited to announce we are just finishing up our THIRD album 
recorded in this marathon year of songwriting, recording, and performing. 
We don’t have a name for it yet, but it is impossibly rocking and many of the songs will be coming up 
in just a few weeks on Dial-A-Song.
Meanwhile, we have just started taking pre-orders for our second album Why? which is officially for kids (but so what!).
Just in time for the holidays, you might want to give it as a gift to a kid in your life.
The bundle includes a TMBG yo-yo as well as a very sweet new shirt design. 
We are now getting ready for our final series of shows in Brooklyn. 
These next five (a horn show in a couple of weeks, a show with a duo set, and then New Years shows) 
will be our last NYC-area appearances for a loonnngggg time so please make it out while you can. 
It really won’t be much longer!
Australia is just a few weeks away, and if you have any connection to that country please tell your friends—you are our street team! 
The UK shows are now on sale and we are happy to report, like Australia, it looks like most of those shows will sell out.
The final US tour for the foreseeable future is coming in the spring. Watch this space. 
After that it’s nap time for a long time.
Thank you all again for being so supportive and excellent. 
We are a very lucky bunch of dudes to have found a gang like you.
See you at the shows!

prepare for a second from now
comb your hair and compose yourself
prepare for a second from now
adjust your chair and clear your throat
a second from the present is nigh
are all your affairs in order now?
a second is a very short time
a moment to anticipate the things to come

the next second won't be anything like the current one
and we won’t know how it’s gonna be till a second is done

no one can see into the future
we're just going to have to wait
there may be strange new customs and new ideas
so try to keep an open mind
prepare for a second from now
as if that would make any difference at all
ready or not it is coming
and there’s no way to stop the clock

the next second’s gonna make the present seem like long ago
and make you forget everything that you currently know

counting down / to zero from one
hold your breath / here it comes
now that the second has passed
let’s all reflect on the times we’ve had
look back on a second ago
given everything that we now know
remember a second ago
recall if you can how it used to be
remember a second ago
it’s hard to believe we were so naive

I can barely remember anything about a second ago

we will soon be a second in the future that is all I know
