i watched the foundation burn - and still i stayed
i watched the torch you held - flicker and fade
betrayed by myself - for holding on so tight
now sadness sickens my heart and confusion blinds my sight
alone i feel so alone
maybe i'll turn this feeling - into a wall of stone
and build it big and strong
i'll build it around my heart - and let no one but you tear it apart
so here's your invitation - i hope you will accept
remember the days in the sun - and promises kept
i'm writing these words from behind this wall.

    General Commentturning point was one of the most important sXe-outfits between 1988 and 1991. In the beginning, their sound was that of just another typical YOT-clone, but as time went on, they integrated a more Gorilla Biscuits-kind of melodical approach and more "rock" influences. "Behind this Wall" was one of their last, and greatest songs.

    Go to jadetree.com/bands/artist/… to find out more, and to download the song "Thursday".

    General CommentUmm, no it's not up for grabs.. That would be like naming your band "Minor Threat"

    General CommentThis song makes my stomach knot. Skip must have been in ultimate turmoil at this point considering his death not so many years later.

    Not to mention, he spent so much time straight edge that to end life at the hand of drugs suggests the very worst. It seems like a final call for help.

    NB: Dante, you sound like a jerk.
