"Nocturnal" as written by Max Collins, Jon Siebels and Tony Fagenson....
Well she's lying in our bed sweating staring at the ceiling
I know her worried head is aching, I know the cause is me
I could leave the bathroom light on for better dreams tonight
My stability, my luxury, my life
And I won't go, neither will you turn off the phone, let's sleep 'til two

Your sad eyes take and own me
Words are unnecessary
Grip the back of your neck and slowly
Move 'til it all becomes alright

I wake up in a cold sweat got a bone to pick with reality
Take a deep breath and lay back down wearing my badge of infamy
Change the bulb in the nightlight cause it flickered flickered and died
Repeat the words you're not alone to self three times and hit the light
My aim is true, turn off the phone, let's sleep 'till two

Your sad eyes take and own me
Words are unnecessary
Grip the back of your neck and slowly
Move 'til it all becomes alright

Let the fighting words lie
Let the candlelight die
Let the sun come up
Let the saline dry

    General Commenti think this songs kinda about his relationship with a girl, and how they just had an argument, or she is always mad. and he knows its something he did, but he just cant deal with it then because its late, and he doesnt want to make anything worse. like he says "let the fighting words die", he doesnt wanna fight, and he feels so guilty of doing whatever he did to this girl because he knows that she really loves him like he says "your sad eyes take and own me, words are unnecessary" like he knows how much he hurt her and she doesnt have to say a thing. does anybody get what im saying?

    General Commenti agree with krys2809 but i also think its about the imperfections in life (and sex) and how so many people view those things as being perfect when theyre not... and hes just pointing that out (too)...

    General CommentI think that it also has to do with having sex instead of actually dealing with whatever the problem is. They sleep together to forget about being angry or upset with eachother.

    General CommentThis is just a reworked version of "Nocturnal Emission" from their debut EP under the name "Eleventeen." That song delt with being alone and wanting a girl, and the perspective changed here to actually having the girl for one reason...Max had a girl during the recording of the album. Both versions are great songs, though there's something lacking from each that's present in the other.

    General CommentThis song is just different from anything I've heard. Just really fun, original pop-rock.
