"Promise The Party" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
We broke the windows so we could see everything
Beyond the pines and passes we'll see what we mean

The party left me, I was getting in the way
They had to leave me, but the landmarks aren't that bad

You think of yourself an Atlas
Coming off (rubbing off) you're more as factless
So simpler we'll see what's attractive
Mapping points till it seems lineless
Pointing out a perfect likeness

Recall the callous in its position on the line
The gaze that comes through it won't give you anything

They had to leave me, and I'm proud to have a part
They had to leave me, it's the nature of concern

You think of yourself an atlas

    General CommentI've listened to this song many times, and it still holds up well as much the 12th time as the 1st. A definite highlight of the Nature of Maps.

    General Commentif you'd listened to it so many times, maybe you could get the lyrics correct? Not bad though. Awesome song - right up there with 'No More' and 'Summer is Coming' as my favorites from the album.

    General Commentsorry - didn't realize those were the ones posted on the band's website. definitely different from what I hear, though. 'around the pines and passes', 'the party left me' both times, don't hear the 'rubbing off' though.
