Eyes that blind like A glare
that comes from the sun
delivered from above
choking on the apple of youreye
I sit and wonder why
I sit here roped and tied
and I should've known
I should have been gone long ago
cause you're done
but where do I go
when I've no place to run?

I think it's gonna give me a heart attack
acting like a broken record
skipping every track

Iron out the wrinkles of your soul
and darn out the holes in your head
I carry my love for you in a thimble
and I sew back the seams of my love
in your heart with a rusty needle and thread
I should have been gone long ago
'cause you're done
now I look in your eyes
like I stare at the sun

I think you're gonna give me a heart attack
you're acting like a broken record
skipping every track

and I should've known
I should have not sewn these seeds so deep
but I'm sure that they will grow
from the tears that you weep
I should have been gone long ago
'cause you're done
now I look in your eyes
like I stare at the sun

    General CommentAMAZING song. Jesus Christ.


    This 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!
