"Holy Names" as written by and Derek Fudesco Andrea Zollo....
Nighttime's out security
The stars watch us like guardian angels
Skeletons of lives to come
Just frames to fill with living and dying
Signatures in permanent
We write our name like claiming a part of time
Layers of paint and fiberglass cover our world
We're in the foundation

This is what I give you
Rooftops with secret views
Fire escapes lead us to heaven
Train yards where we hide together

Nighttime's our security
The stars watch us like guardian angels
Takes these letters from an old sign
Now you've got your initials

    General Commentcan't really grasp the meaning of the song, but it's awesome song. Especially when ur in a thoughtful or zoning out mood.

    General CommentI think this song is about being with someone, sort of in a secret sort of relationship and maintaining your secrecy while still giving the other person a part of themselves.

    General Commenti think its also about just trying to stay in the moment, like freezing a memory with someone. or that the memory already passed but things like road signs and letters remind her of an ex. i love this song, :marrys it:

    General CommentI really don't know if any of the members went there for high school, but there is an all girls high school in Seattle called Holy Names. Since they're based in Seattle there might be a correlation, but I don't know.
