"Bye Bye Love" as written by and Terry Kirkman Jules Alexander....
Take your wings outside, you can't fly in here
Besides, a purple sky is better soaring
for you my angel
You're an angel, you little devil
As for me i'll stay inside, I'll be just fine
and I'll watch from the window

Cannot categorize the nature of this sickness
A miracle that you're alive
Stuck to the roof of my mouth with a staple
Remember last April when we saw US Maple?
Somehow the singer showed the Fireside
exactly how I feel

And we say goodbye and go underground
Or up towards the sky
Up in smoke burnt down to size
At least we're still friends, at least we're still alive

Take your wings outside, no use for them in here
Bad luck to open inside, work like umbrellas
Like a broken mirror, it's getting clearer
The end is closer than ever before
And you'll want nothing more
When your head hits the floor
And you're lost in the darkness
And we say goodbye and go underground
Or up towards the sky
Up in smoke burnt down to size
At least we're still friends, at least we're still alive

And we say goodbye and go underground
Or up towards the sky
Up in smoke burnt down to size
At least we're still friends, at least we're still
alive

    General CommentI got this song a little while ago, and it is really good. It is actually one of my favorite ALK3 songs because it is really cool to hear them doing something a little different from all their other stuff. This song rocks.

    General Commentalkaline trio sold out! now there gonna be anouther band on TRL or MTV too. The video sucked . there probly gonna tour with like blink,jimmy,saves,dashboard,o yeah not saves the day cause they broke up and i hope thats why alkaline trio sold out. so its the end folks. alkaline trio went aginst everything that i thought they beleved in . and became a group of pozers .insted of a kick ass underground punk rock band. for nothing ex money. I hope if i go to a alkaline trio show that i flip out and kill like all the pozer alkaline trio fans .by creating a giant pit with the help of the other true alkaline tiro fans.and if i watch the video for stupid kid one more time then id probly throw alkline trio in the pit to. just to kick the mainstream out of them . break there fingers so they cant play for awile let them think it over alittle . well to the rest of you that read this ask urself one question did you think that even if alkaline trio went mainstream(witch you probly didnt)that they would have a video like the pile of steamy shit that they put on MTV.I dont even think i can watch it agin id indanger my computer. Id probly smash the monitor or just drop fuckin dead ok. this song bye bye love sucks by the way

    General Commentfirst off, nickman is queer as hell. if alkaline trio sold out why would they have just put out a split cd with hot water music and went on a small haloween tour with small brown bike? finchguy... you don't know what you're talking about either because finch is more radio friendly than alk3 so why would you want to kill them in the moshpit? c'mon guys, seriously, there's nothing wrong with a band getting big and getting more fans if they're still all about the rock. bands can't make enough to survive the rest of their lives anyway no matter who they are unless you're aerosmith. all the money that record companies pay for recording, promotion, distribution, concerts, house bills for the bands when they're on tour... the band has to pay it back... they don't make money, they're just all about the rock and love to make music and tour. when the band is over, they all get jobs. vagrant charges 10 grand to the venue to book alk3... for 10 bucks a ticket you need to get 1000 people to the show... that doesn't happen very often. the only money alk3 makes on tour is from merch. and the venue gets the rest of the money they don't make on ticket sales from liquor sales... so don't tell me they sold out. good mourning has a close sound to maybe i'll catch fire. get it when it comes out, it should be great if they do a good job mastering the rough demos i've heard.
