If you get the chance to, wipe that glare off your face
French kiss my fingerprints and heave it in an alleyway
Defenseless yet so violent princess of divine
Your ugliness arrived on time
And I know I never was beautiful enough for you
The scars on my back turn my fingers blue

So take down my pictures, it's better that way
That way I'm still seeing you

I never needed you tonight but I just couldn't wait
I was loaded and the hammer was ready
I'm just not that brave...

And I will be the king of the sky
And you can wonder where I land
I'm falling together
Alone in wonderland
Call me the king of the sky
And you can wonder where I land
I'm falling together
Alone in wonderland

And there are reasons why I forfeit that nightly mess
Numbing my hands down that evening dress
My daydreams love the violet color of your lips
And the nightmares that accompany it
So take that glare back and put it behind glass
Become part of my history class

I needed you tonight but I just couldn't wait
I was loaded but my hands just aren't that steady
But I'm not that brave...
I'm just not that brave...

And I will be the king of the sky
And you can wonder where I land
I'm falling together
Alone in wonderland
Call me the king of the sky
And you can wonder where I land
I'm falling together
Alone in wonderland

I don't plan on you tonight so just shut off the lights
Like you wanted to...

    General Commentto be honest it's not really his voice that really blows me away because i mean he's a good singer and all but he's not spectacular. I mean like Adam from TBS and the guy from the used, thursday those guys are all wicked singers but he's just incredibel what he does with what he has. I mean just how he writes the melody it's almost like its another intrument flowing all over the place. It's really goood in that sense, like he doesnt seem to just fall back on obvious vocal patterns. But anyways. this song is a great one, i love the intro verse. I think it's about an ex maybe that still totally controls him. BUt hes trying not to let her.
    cool.

    General CommentNorthstar are amazing. I saw them 2 nights ago with Armor for Sleep (who are also amazing - check them out) and they put on an awesome show. Unfortunately, not alot of people were really really into it like me and my friends, but the Singer (Nick Torres) really put it on for us. He's the man. This is one of my favorite songs, and probably my favorite on the cd. I agree with 'Action and Action' about the meaning.

    General CommentYeah I would agree that it's not really his voice but his phrasing and melody. When I first heard Northstar I didn't like the singing because he doesn't annunciate his words very clearly, but I've grown to absolutely love it. Northstar to me seems to be a little less about the lyrics and more about the ambiance. That's not to say that the lyrics are bad at all - I think this song is absolutely incredible, as well as practically all of their others - but the way their singer finds his melody patterns is phenominal. I see some big things for these guys in the future.
