"Innocent Vigilant Ordinary" as written by Christopher A. Crisci, Aaron Pillar and Marcus Jordan Young....
"oh, no," i said
i think about the times
the way you smile at me
and how we always kiss

and how we drank the sun
and killed the night
and fought the sleep and won
and how we left it all unmade

it was only once

now there's more than one
no, there's only one
now there's more than one
you're the only one
you're the only one
you're the only one

it's good to see
that you are doing well
and well enough to be
laughing here with me

'cause what we did
there's no excuse for it
you know i love you so
and it hurts to know what i did

it was only once

i want you to know
that i will always love you
and always be your friend
and never leave you again

the past is past us now
so we can go
and we can move ahead
i hope this letter gets read

if just only once

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy who cheated on his girlfriend, then realized the err of his ways and is apologizing for it.

    General CommentBeautiful song, Two Conversations is a step-down from previous Appleseed works but by no means a bad album at all. I only have a couple of small nitpicked gripes with it, nothing that detracts too much from the beauty. Firstly, I know they decided to put vocals more up front, and that's fine, but the lyrics...I just don't think Appleseed Cast are the kind of band that really do well by riding on the weight of lyrics. Their musicianship and the way everything blends has always been their greatest talent, and the way they always used simple and sincere lyrics as just a way to make the songs feel complete worked well for them. However, songs like this and others on Two Conversations have too much of that simple sincere lyrical body and when they overdo it, I feel it gets a little redundant. The second gripe is the drumming.....it's good, and I haven't heard Casket Lottery but the new guy is definitely no Cobra. He just doesn't offer the drumming that was unique to this band.

    As I said, those were out of sheer nitpicking. Two Conversations is an awesome album that is underappreciated by many AC fans.

    General Commentgreat song,
    ... conversations like that though ... they're no good ... you know that relationship's only going one way and it's not a good way.

    General CommentThe dual guitars and the drums make this song soooo good. It's just so damn catchy. It's so dense and just the right amount of rockin. It's really one of the best appleseed cast songs.
