"Anthem Of Our Dying Day" as written by Dan Marsala, Ryan Phillips, Adam Russell, Phillip Sneed and Joshua Wills....
The stars will cry
The blackest tears tonight
And this is the moment that I live for
I can smell the ocean air
And here I am
Pouring my heart onto these rooftops
Just a ghost to the world
That's exactly
Exactly what I need

From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day

For a second I wish the tide
Would swallow every inch of this city
As you gasp for air tonight
I'd scream this song right in your face
If you were here
I swear I won't miss a beat
Cause I never
Never have before

From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day

From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day

From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day

Our dying day
Of our dying!

    General Commentwell i think then song is pretty self explanatory.

    ITs very rad, and story of the year is the best
    unkept secret

    General CommentSOTY is probably one of the best bands out there right now, i can just about garautee that they'll be HUGE within a year, john feldman produced their album AMAZINGLY compared the the "big blue monkey" EP which in my opinion wasnt all that great, but i love these guys....

    General CommentVery kickass song. Good to see that this band is starting to become more well-known, but that was inevitable since they decided to tour with Linkin Park, Hoobastank, and POD (wasn't it those bands?). Oh well. I can't say they deserve all the credit they get though. Anyway, yeah, I've felt like I can relate to this song a lot of times. Reminds me of being sick of everything and especially being sick of the painful feelings that you seem to always feel from a certain person. Perhaps because you've been abandoned by this person and left in a place you hate being in.

    The stars will cry the blackest tears tonight,
    and this is the moment that i live for,
    i can smell the ocean air.
    Here i am pouring my heart on to these roof tops,
    just a ghost, to the world.
