"Cringe" as written by and Glenn Porter Mathew Thomas Skiba....
Wide eyed
Knee deep in surprise
Just below your thighs
The temperature drops 5 degrees
Your stand-by flight
Has just arrived

Tough tied
Bleeding from your eyes
Even Christ himself
Would cringe at the sight of your scares
While your counting sheep
I'll count my lucky stars

You were the last good thing I ever saw
I lost it all
I lost it all!

Burned out on 2 hours of shut eye
Eyes glazed at the thought of the next 8 hours
Headwind
Cold rain to wake me

You were the last good thing I ever saw

    General CommentMe too! Great song. My favorite line is "even Christ himself would cringe at the sight of your scars." I dunno why but that's the line that gets me.

    General Commentthis is easily one of the trio's best songs. and all these damn people and them liking the new album. compared to alkaline trio's older shit the new album is a travesty people should just listen to cringe and admire how amazing they were on this record.

    General CommentI totally agree with emokid5, the new album is shit compared to the older stuff. Private Eye doesn't come close to My Little Needle or Fuck You Aurora or Cringe. My favorite line in the song is "Headwind, cold rain to wake me". They're fucking great and are so talented it's amazing. The lyrics are all so much more and they rock so hard live.

    General CommentYou know what bothers me? When people are like "ohh older stuff is so much better than their new shit...blah blah blah..." Seriously, it's the same band. Maybe their new stuff sounds a littler different but you gotta have change or it would get so boring listening to the same old stuff. God Dammit is their best CD, but FHTI is pretty good to, and far from "shit"

    General CommentAmen smelly butt kait, im as big an Alk3 fan as you can get , and i really cant see how you could possibly call FHTI shit, id like you to point out one spot on that disk that isnt amazing, obviously you dont like the band very much if you think their new stuff's shitty, fuckin weirdos

    General CommentI agree as well, every album Alkaline Trio have bought out has been amazing, there's not one shit one. It's just 'cause he's pretending to be a hardcore fan and saying the new stuff's shit because more people know them from Stupid Kid. Anyway this song is pretty average for and Alkaline song which to any other band means fucking amazing. Top quality.
    :crazy:
