Concerning confrontations
This is a shy and quiet morning
The sleeping dogs awoke last night
The thunder scares them stiff-eyed

Exercise your exorcisms
Anchor down, raise the sail...
Autumn night, stay soft and cool...
Come morning light, I'll be gone

Spectators are tired of watching
They're filing out the big top doors
I'm buried in the smell of circus
Those dark clouds are rolling in

Drunken mouth, kitchen smile
Please summon me softly to sleep
We never talk, we only speak
Today I've seen a dragon
On the ripped up worn-out arm rest
Stay back, this skin is laced with sticks of dynamite
I'll be burning out like a shooting star
A thousand pretty lights assail these sinking feelings
I should be on trial for everything I haven't done
I should be on trial
For everything I haven't done...

    General Commenti love the way brenden and chris alternate vocals on certain parts of this song.. like when chris says "drunken mouth" and brenden says "kitchen smile".. that gets me everytime.

    General CommentThis song seems to be about a time in a persons life when they're right about to make a big change or take a big risk after living safely for a long time.
