"Morning Calls" as written by Christopher Andrew Carrabba and Michael Duane Stroud....
Morning calls for pain relief,
A line above the step beneath
The worst that you could do.
And the best that you could hope for,
Is hardly the best.

Tepid waters chase the pills
With turpentine and chamomile,
And don't get cheap on the wine.
You need to be up all of the time.

Shield your eyes, conceal your lies.

Don't blink.
Everyone's watching.
They'll think that you're up to something.
They need for you to be everything
That they cannot be themselves.

    General CommentThe other day when i was being emo and sk8boarding, I was having a tough time landing this trick. So I thought to myself "come on jennifer, you're a man, you can do this" and then I thought about this song, and how emo it was, and how emo it made me feel, and how i like to be emo. So I tried to do the trick again, and I failed. Emo and Dashboard have failed me.

    General CommentThis song explains itself...
    "Don't blink everyone's watching" --everyone is counting on you
    "They'll think you're up to something" --they can't see that you struggle, because it would be letting them down
    "They need for you to be everything that they cannot be themselves"
    --self explanitory...you have to be their charachter because they depend on you.
    I guess I can kind of relate to this song becuase a lot of people come to me for advice, expecting me to have alllllll the answers...when I totally don't. And I have problems too, but no where to go becuase everyone depends on me to make the right decisions and choices for them.
