"Life on Standby" as written by Eron Bucciarelli-tieger, Micah Carli, James Ii Woodruff, Matthew Ridenour and Casey Calvert....
The distance and my hearts to sand
Flowing through the hour glass
Time to let go of all we know
And break our hearts in stride.

I need you now more like yesterday
The last day I could see you smile.
For the last time turn out the lights
My life on standby.

So standby and watch
This fall away and fall apart.

Just say that it's over,
It's over and she's gone.
(now...she's...gone)

Don't worry he said,
And she's not coming home.
(she's...not...coming...home)

It's over and she's gone.

The distance and my hearts to sand
Flowing through the hour glass.
I've thought of pieces, I can't let go
Of all the times I never said goodbye.

Just say that it's over,
It's over and she's gone.
(now...she's...gone)

Don't worry he said,
And she's not coming home.
(she's...not...coming...home)

It's over and she's gone.

Wake up! wake up! wake up! wake up!
Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die

Wake up! wake up! wake up! wake up!
Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die

Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die

Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die

    General Commentway to go lipgloss&letdown, i'm glad someone cleared that up. Hawthorne ruled on the A Static Lullaby tour, they definitely stole the show, a lot of people left after they played. Anyway you suckers out there make sure to support Hawthorne on the Take Action Tour with Sugarcult and the Early November.

    General Commentthis song is awesome
    it has a meaning to me tough, mi girlfriend is now in another country and this song reminds me of it

    i belive this songs talks about a guy that has a relationship with a girl, and the girls has to go somewhere else, he cant beliveit, and while he sleeps he remembers everytime they spent together, and at the end he wakes up, begging for all those memoreis not to be a dream, and when he wakes up he realices that he was dreaming, and that his girls is now gone
