Never found our way out again
'cause to retrace that blood trail's
More than I can bear

This is my spring
I finally fixed the car
Floored out of here
I'll find out who my friends are
The ones waiting tomorrow morning
I pushed this away so hard
This is my spring
Fixed the car today

I wish I were lighter
The weariness weighs
Too heavily on me
This is my spring
Still cold enough
For snow from planes

Tracing seams across sky overhead
Seed the soil left to fallow too long
With pamphlets proclaiming
Fall's finally dead

The steering wheel
Never mine to turn
And now it turns
On any tangent but around
That's something you still have to learn
With the muffler
And my memory removed
I'm spared the sound

Never found our way out again
'cause retracing that blood trail's
More than I can bear

Tracing seams across sky overhead
Seed the soil left to fallow too long
With pamphlets proclaiming
Fall's finally dead

Just like growing up!

So much like growing up
Falling becomes fallen, and buried alive
But buoyancy keeps it up, survive
Keeps it alive

So much like growing up
Falling becomes fallen, and buried alive
But buoyancy keeps it up, survive
Keeps it alive

So much like growing up
Falling becomes fallen, and buried alive
But buoyancy keeps it up, survive
Keeps it alive

So much like growing up
Falling becomes fallen, and buried alive
But buoyancy keeps it up, survive
Keeps it alive

So much like growing up
Falling becomes fallen, and buried alive
But buoyancy keeps it up, survive
Keeps it alive

So much like growing up
Falling becomes fallen, and buried alive
But buoyancy keeps it up, survive
Keeps it alive

So much like growing up
Falling becomes fallen, and buried alive
But buoyancy keeps it up, survive

    General Commentyeah this is a really good song, normally I don't like that "pop-punk/emo/whatever you want to label it" kind of stuff, normally into the harder stuff but this song is fucking awesome especially at the end when the girl starts singing along.

    General Commenthere's the full lyrics...

    Never found our way out again
    Cause to trace this blood trail is more than I can bear
    This is my spring I finally fixed the car, floored out of here
    I'll find out who my friends are, the ones waiting tomorrow morning
    I pushed this away so hard, this is my spring, fixed the car today
    I wish I were lighter, the weariness weighs too heavily on me.
    This is my spring still cold enough for snow from planes tracing seams
    Across the sky overhead seed the soil left to fallow too long
    With pamphlets proclaiming "falls finally dead"
    The steering wheel never mine to turn
    Now it turns on any tangent but around
    That's something you still have to learn
    With the muffler my memory removed
    I'm spared the sound, never found our way out again;
    Never found our way out again
    Cause to trace this blood trail is more than I can bear
    From planes tracing seams across the sky overhead
    Seed the soil left to fallow too long
    With pamphlets proclaiming "falls finally dead" “so long!”
    So much like growing up falling becomes fallen and buried alive
    But buoyancy keeps it up survive, (keeps it alive)
    So much like growing up falling becomes fallen and buried alive
    But buoyancy keeps it up survive, (keeps it alive)
    So much like growing up falling becomes fallen and buried alive
    But buoyancy keeps it up survive, (keeps it alive)
    So much like growing up falling becomes fallen and buried alive
    But buoyancy keeps it up survive, (keeps it alive)
    So much like growing up falling becomes fallen and buried alive
    But buoyancy keeps it up survive, (keeps it alive)
    So much like growing up falling becomes fallen and buried alive
    But buoyancy keeps it up survive, (keeps it alive)
    So much like growing up falling becomes fallen and buried alive
    But buoyancy keeps it up survive

    General Commentyes the ever popular assumption that john is a girl... i love it! haha just because everyone i've had listen to it without telling them anything about the band hs thought that john was a girl... and it always makes me laugh because since i knew they were all guys the very first time i ever heard it, i've never even considered him sounding liek a girl haha it's really nice.

    General Comment1st track of the album...
    i would really appreciate if anyone who reads this,
    if you would like , we could have a discussion about this album in whole, not to say i dont love the sound, because it was all pretty stuff, but more on the lines of the meaning, and how this song, intially starts it.
