Just close your eyes to erase all the best dreams
and this quiet refrain is never what it seems
It's five AM in a counterfeit sleep
I can't believe that I'm still counting sheep
with her mind full blown edged in bright warning red
with voices in her head

I am close to it now to remembering
all those dark desert clouds and how the torrent stream
flooded our heels with a water so deep
I can't believe that you still fell asleep
with a mind full blown etched in light morning red
with all that we have said
you passed out cold on the deep waters edge
you must have bumped your head

Don't be afraid
forget it all
keep it all to yourself
Once you awake
get it all keep it on your shelf

I kiss the mud and the leaves and the trees embrace me
with the mountains lying down at the sea I would sleep

    General CommentThis album is one of the most beautiful pieces of work I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. We're in effin 2010 and I was listening to this band back in 2001. It's amazing how different they sound on every album, from sense of coalition to this one. But they always caught my ear no matter what. I defy the reviews that dismissed this album as an attempt to fit into the mainstream pop punk genre. The hell with that. This was one of the greatest bands of all time, no messing around. After this album, however, I don't know what other direction there was to take, and I obv. don't know the exact reasons they broke up, whether it was internal conflicts or w/e, but I'm a firm believer in ending things when they are at their pinnacle, much like the decision to end Sex and The City or Friends when they were at the top. Sometimes there's no where else to go. But goddamnit to hell, this band will always get me hot 'ehn bothered. Holler at me. ONE TIME!
