Could we make up our minds tonight
Will we open up our eyes
Burning pages I'm pouring out on
Will your innocence contest
Will you be like the rest

Wake up the time has come to make up for what you have done
Maybe my answers are not out east
Well at least I still breathe

Longing for lovers that have long since discovered
The truth behind these dreams
Eastbound traffic has led me to rush hour scenes

I'm not coming home, this time I'm letting go
Of all of my pain, I leave it to you
Too much to contain now there's nothing to lose
I'm not coming home, this time I'm letting go
Of all of my pain, I leave it to you
Too much to contain now there's nothing to lose

Maybe my answers are not out east
Well at least I still breathe
Maybe my answers are not out east
Well at least I still breathe

Longing for lovers that have long since discovered
The truth behind these dreams
Eastbound traffic has led me to rush hour scenes
Rush hour scenes

Contemplating our love is fading
And I'm not holding back tears anymore
Contemplating our love is fading
And I'm not holding back these tears anymore

I'm not coming home, this time I'm letting go
Of all of my pain, I leave it to you
Too much to contain now there's nothing to lose

I'm not coming home, this time I'm letting go
Of all of my pain, I leave it to you
Too much to contain now there's nothing to lose

    General CommentRemember Maine kicks the crap out of Dashboard. I'd be happy to see Bill get big, but I kinda wanna keep hom for myself to enjoy. I don't wanna see another DC. Great Album. I'd like to see all the lyrics from the album on here. Peace...

    General Commenti'm so glad some people have actually heard of this band. it's so amazing... i wouldnt actually say they are better than dashboard, since they're so alike, but they rock out. but i guess you could say they are like UNsold-out DC, like WMMF said...

    ...i'll post the lyrics to Forever Ended Today later on. You all should hear it, it's amazing.
