Caught without people or drink I don't know what else to think but I'm going to grow wings and sing, "amen, I'm checking out." so withdrawing within the drawing room, drawing you. And remember my memory was a mess when we'd undress near the dresser together and you'd take me apart. But then I'd say, "storms are born really far away somewhere west of LA" where birds have kids like crazy, seagulls and turtledoves. And remember we'd tell everyone to tell everyone we're dead. And right now sugar and water will put me down. That's all right. I know.

    General CommentMy personal favorite Promise Ring song. I love the line "but I'm gonna grow wings and sing 'amen, I'm checking out'".

    General Commentaccording to an interview in ap, the song is about their van accident in nebraska where they slipped on a patch of ice, rolled thier van, and almost all died.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song of all time.

    It just has that ghostly kind of vibe to it and gives me chills and the lyrics are wonderful.
