The whites of your eyes blind blue but bind by surprise the tired tries of trying time and through your teeth cry lines of lies hiding under street lights fighting night time disguise. I can't fight the butterflies, trying to hide from your eyes. I lied. So long ago, you swallowed your smile to break your heart. It was always your best weapon. I could never win. I tried, but you keep attempting to anthem that argument again, and again. I can see you. Aging with beauty, but becoming so ugly. What happened to the stars? They just kept fading. Tonight I can imagine that image in most any situation, sitting with leaves that leave trees all alone. Still paying attention to tension with questions you mention. I never thought you would let me fall again. Are you happy this happened, ending in patience? I lied, your eyes can't hide. For every other time. I tried, your eyes can't lie. Forever always cries. Accepting signs, except for time. Expect nothing. I never thought you would let me fall again. Tonight, I can imagine that image in most any situation. I lied. I can't fight the butterflies. Accepting signs, except for time. What happened to the stars? They just kept fading.

    General CommentThat first line...amazing. I am seeing these guys 3 nights in a row this summer. Last summer we had a cool BBQ with them wafflehouse and a bunch of other people and bands. Amazing music, amazing words, amazing show, amazing people. Definition of what all bands should be.
