Everything is for sale underneath the sun,
Send your dollars in the mail
If you've got what you want, well there's always more
(better get it before it's gone.)
There's a sale at the store better get there before they close the door
Down the street there's a dog selling socks
To a frog for a hundred dollar bill
But the bill blows away
Goes around around and drifts away
(you are not what you would pay)
All it wants another day begins
Blossoming right before your eyes

Everything is for sale so i sell my eyes
To a preacher who is blind
And i'll carve up my arms sell
Them to the lumberyard
And i'll auction off my ears
Maybe even pawn my fears

All is right, tonight.

    General CommentThis song is a great song even though i have no idea what chris is feeling or trying to say. Its uhm.. well confusing.

    But this line is awesomely brilliant " Maybe even pawn my fears"

    General CommentIt's a song that was recorded for "In Reverie" but wasn't put on the album. It's very odd and enjoyable to listen to. Chris is a KRAZY man.

    General Commentthe song is a lot better then most of the songs on In Reverie. it makes me sad when i think of how great Saves the Day's music was TBC-SWYA era. sure, maturity and growth but there is no denying that Chris used to have so much emotion and power in his voice before, and the music used to convey so much more feeling. now they are very subdued and the lyrics aren't even coherent anymore.

    General Commenti think what chris is trying to say here is that 'you are not what you would pay' - money is not everything. cliche but true. hes offering to sell his eyes and his arms and possibly even his fears to get what he wants, material items. it is one of the better in reveri songs, although it took me until recently to even give in reverie a chance. im a fan, but i am not happy with the direction theyve taken. im sorry im leaving was such a beautiful ep, and tbc swya, all progressively got slower since csd, so its nbo surprise that in reverie was a put you to sleep album... still a fan though..

    General Commentwell, chris can't sing like he used to anymore because of his throat. i'm not sure what happened but he physically isn't able to sing as aggressively as he did on the previous albums.

    in reverie still has wonderful lyrics, it's way softer, but like oh_sometimes_nj said, they gradually slowed down.

    i think oh_sometimes_nj prettymuch covered the meaning of this song. too bad it wasn't on the in reverie cd..

    My OpinionI'm pretty sure this song is just referencing how materialistic society is becoming...

    ... On a side note, I can't believe how many people don't like "In Reverie", it's far more musically sophisticated and evolved than any of Chris' stuff prior to it's release... either way I hope "In Reverie" actually gets a rerelease with all of the b-sides included someday
