A break in time, flourescent sign. How they listen I don't know. It's a sympathetic show of cliched words to go, a sale on four, and "S's" in the eyes. How they fake it I don't know. Fill my cup, it's time to go. And in the end, a twist of lime. A reflection of a vintage delight. And I've got plans of a cartoon life. How I'll get there I don't know. Burn the flag and take it slow around the edge that's drilled inside your head. The TV doesn't lie. How they listen I don't know. It's a sympathetic show. I'm taking pictures in my head. The girls they look so nice in red. I can't believe the things you said concerning me and my life. So good bye and good night. I can't believe the things that you said.

    General Commentthe beggining sounds like Incubus Pardon me. But as the song progresses better. Not as hard as last CD, and no screaming. =( Keepsake - The beggining of the end of sound = great song get it to see an example of old keepsake! but still not a bad song

    one of the best lines Shane has written. This is one of my favorite songs by these boys, I love the theme of the song. Its very great to listen to when your trying to sleep.
