"Cover Up" as written by and Justin Valenti Timothy Costello....
Lost yourself in the couch
Swimming with all the change again
Waking up indifferent day after day
Just one constant slap in the face keeps you awake
Waking up inside bleeding through the eyes
Caught up confused all the anchors sigh
Strapped to the floor
Nothing left to lose
Now that you've got a trail to cover up,
Why are you whispering to me?
And deep inside my room there's no such thing as light
Passing through these bars
Talk out loud so I can hear your voice scattered clearly
Lungs breathing evenly
Often I sleep
And often you'll leave
Just one more reminder keeps you wandering
Waking up inside bleeding through the eyes
Caught up confused all the anchors sigh
Strapped to the floor
Nothing left to lose
Now that you've got a trail to cover up,
Why are you whispering to me?
And deep inside my room there's no such thing as light
Passing through these bars
Wax candles selling out the room.
While the eyes have theirs is not to be confused
Change your name
Change your name

    General CommentI think you got those last lyrics right, and why has noone commented on this song? or this band in general?? they write the most infectious guitar parts and the lyrics fit perfectly in every song. These guys and counterfit definatly need to be checked out.

    General CommentThis song took me about a year to become my favorite on the album... and that says a lot considering how wonderful this whole album is. After a while I would just skip to the last 15 seconds when Lad sings "change your name" and I'm left writhing in my seat from the palpable emotion. Wonderful.
