Elf Power, New Mexico
Elf Power, New Mexico

Thank God you're still angry at me
I"ve got a better chance of seeing you dead and buried, yeah
Thank you, for this one last big mistake

It's your turn, come shoot for it
If you win?
Well you can lead the way
Yeah

Middays are grey, into New Jersey
Did you think maybe I was doing quite well without you in the frame?

Staile, killed in defense
I can't believe I told you right after
"I've given you up, go on find someone new"
Until then, pretend you've touched me for your last
I've given you up, go on find someone new

Dear Nikki, what
What if I could have found a better half, here, in you
I merely came here and . . .

Elf Power, New Mexico
Elf Tower, New Mexico

Stay here in our last standing hourglass, circumstance
Devoted here, in the midst of weary eyes
Lost and buried here, in your big surprise, again

Will your fingers find my bag famillar?
I fit in the question I had to ask
Did you think maybe I was doing quite well without you in the frame?

Staile, killed in defense
I can't believe I told you right after
"I've given you up, go on find someone new"
Until then, pretend you've touched me for your last
I've given you up, go on find someone new

Dear Nikki, what
What if I could have found a better half, here, in you
I merely came here and . . .

Elf Power, New Mexico

(Smile tomorrow, you are home)

I'll give my my words in one lesson

Dear God
Before I heard this is your intention
Before I, I could've figured out, over and over

See there's Coheed, and then Cambria in innocent merger
Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Thank God they recovered your body in New Mexico
Three days
I'm spoiled
I miss you in every way
You could have been dear, I wish you were here, still in the frame

Staile, killed in defense
I can't believe I told you right after
"I've given you up, go on find someone new"
Until then, pretend you've touched me for your last
I've given you up, go on find someone new

Dear Nikki, what
What if I could have found a better half, here, in you
I merely came here and . . .

Elf Power, New Mexico

    General Comment:this is definitely a coheed song, i talked to claudio after a show about it...the story goes...they were recording elf tower/power (he said it never had a set name and could be either) for second stage turbine blade and stopped because it was too difficult for claudio to sing. so it was never finished and will never be played live. and these lyrics are off, they're good, but email me if you want more accurate ones

    General Comment:His voice is not digitally altered, it really does sound like that. And if I'm not mistaken, this song is not a Shabutie song, but a Coheed and Cambria song. Or so a frequent border at the Co&Ca message boards said. Hmm.

    General Comment:what a great song. so this isnt stuff thats gonna be on the new cd? I downloaded a bunch of new stuff tonite by C&C thats not on 2nd Stage Turbine Blade. Most of it is obviously C&C but i got one called shabuti and is a techno song. Is this really them? and this other song An End to A Begining. I swear that cant be Claudio. If it is omg i will crap myself. how can he have such an amazing range? Im always suspicious about stuff off Kazaa. Your boyfriend sux by the Ataris showed up as a C&C song.
