"The First Single" as written by and Ralph Vaughan Williams Anonymous....
I can't stand to think about a heart so big it hurts like hell. Oh my God I gave my best but for three more years to end like this. Well do you want to fall apart? I can't stop if you can't start. Do you want to fall apart? I could if you can try to fix what I've undone. Cause I hate what I've become.
(Chorus) You know me, oh you think you do, you just don't seem to see. I've been waiting all this time to be something that I can't define. So let's cause a scene. Clap our hands and stomp our feet. Or something, yeah something. I've just gotta get myself over me.
I could stand to do without all the people I have left behind. What's the point in going around when its straight line baby. A straight line down. So let's make a list of who we need and it's not much if any thing. Lets make a list of who we need and well throw it away cause we don't need anyone, no we don't need anyone.
And I hate what I've become. You know the night life is just not for me, cause all you really need are a few good friends. I don't want to go out and be on my own, you know they started something I can't stand. You leave for the city, well count me out. Cause all this time is wasted on everything I've done.

    General CommentThe Format is such an awesome band. I've gone to a lot of their shows and all their sideproject band shows, and to tell you the truth, any of the bands with one of the guy's influence is worth checking out. As for this song, it's great and it was, in fact, their first single. I fell in love with it the first time I heard Nate's unsually high guy voice. =)
