"Last" as written by Mark M Weinberg and Unknown Writers....
Here we go again
Being stuck up and spent
Save it for rent
Sun of blood red homes
Cause a dream with no color
Well, why even bother

And we know that it won't last
But we're fortunate (fortunate)
And the time just proves too much
And we're wearing down
Wearing down again

Shut up and fall
With the memories of summer
The perm and the sun
And the call of fall
With a comfortable lover
I just can't take all the decay
And we know that it won't last
But we're fortunate (fortunate)
And the time just proves too much
And we're wearing down
Wearing down again

It's okay if you don't show
But I want you to know that you're invited
It's okay if you don't call
But I want you to know that I'm excited

And we know that it won't last
But we're fortunate (fortunate)
And the time just proves too much
And we're wearing down

And we know that it won't last
But we're fortunate (fortunate)
And the time just proves too much
And we're wearing down
Wearing down again

    General CommentThis song really confuses me... i have no idea what they could be singing about. There is so much emotion put into this song though, its amazing. I love the emphasis on the first few words on every verse.

    General CommentI think its a relationship thats gone past the point where they should have broken up. You know in your heart that its over, but you cant end it. It's just gotten miserable at this point. A dream with no color refers to their future. No matter if they force it, its wearing down.

    Just my thoughts when I heard it. Awesome song, and an awesome band. March 8th 2005 is when the full length album will be released.

    General CommentThis band is amazing. I love Onelinedrawing, and when I heard Gratitude was playing with Jimmy Eat World, I was ecstatic. I saw them in Providence in early November. They were fantastic. I can't believe how good the music is. They were better than the other opening band, Recover, who sucked ass, frankly.

    I can't wait for the full-length album.

    General Commenti think toad-666 is right on. i think it's about a relationship that should have been over long ago, and there's no use in staying in it. there's no hard feelings and it has to be done, but one of them is in denial or something

    General CommentI really love this song because of the vocals...very cool. Definitely going to go buy the full length album, this song and "drive away" really convince me.

    I think its about love not lasting, but still trying to hang on.

    General CommentIt's about trying to make yourself happy, maybe in a relationship or just life in general, and realizing that you're not fooling anyone.
