"The Getaway Plan" as written by Matthew Davies, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
Wasted journey's, time spent better knowing nothing
And looks, they don't help.
Prying eyes wander west to where oceans meet gold,
And you wonder why my heart, it breaks in two.

Hours pass into minutes, kissing the seconds away,
And days seem to melt just like your classic summers.

It's come to the point where, everything looses perspective
And I'm the one, and I'm the one who

Prying eyes wander west to where oceans meet gold,
And you wonder why my heart, it breaks for you.

Stupid things are said, stupid things are done
And when the time comes
I'll shout from high mountain tops.

    General Commentthis song is meant to be a bridge between the between order and model E.P and the four ways ep. It was released as a b-side to the first official U.K single. if that helps at all.

    General Commentwhat the fuck? This song is so old and none posted even a comment on it that the song is fucking amazing. -.-
    In the seven ways to scream your name there is a line like this that is not here.
    "Your smile is so false, it won't take much to see you break."
    I hoped 2 times that ffaf would play this one live. But didnt.

    Matt is singing here about decisions in life.
    The beginning of the song starts with 2 guitars that act after another (left,right,left,right,left,right) to show that actually.
    In my opinion its a decision between moving west (like american westward movement) to fulfill hopes and dreams, or to stay in a relationship.
    That decision caused trouble in some way (your smile is so false, it won't take much to see you break.)

    He knew it was stupid but he is shure that he will climb the mountain of his hopes and will shout whats left, and which decision was better.

    General CommentHere are the correct lyrics.

    Wasted journeys, time spent better knowing nothing
    And looks, they don't help.
    Prying eyes wander west to where oceans meet gold,
    And you wonder why my heart, it breaks in two.

    Hours pass into minutes, kissing the seconds away,
    And days, they seem to melt just like your classic summers.

    It's come to the point where everything loses perspective...
    And I'm the one, and I'm the one who...
    Prying eyes wander west to where oceans meet gold,
    And you wonder why my heart, it breaks for you.

    Hours pass into minutes, kissing the seconds away,
    And days, they seem to melt just like your classic summers.

    Your smile is so false, it won't take much to see you break

    Stupid things are said, stupid things are done
    And when the time comes, I'll shout from high mountain tops.


    And darr3n, I think you're pretty much spot on with that!
