"Van Buren" as written by Daniel Lowder, Thomas J Minich, Jose Daniel Romero and Mark Daniel Rose....
The day after independence day
There's no laughter
And nothing left to say
We all fall back
To our padded lives
Our hearts turn black
Pursue the dollar signs

Either way we will all fall down
The beating heart is the only sound
Close our eyes as we hit the ground
And wake up blinded
[x2]

We're all burnt out
From working overtime
From eating pills that
Control our state of mind
We drink ourselves asleep
Just to forget the day
We medicate again
Just to stay awake

Are we living just to die
Or are we just dying to live

Either way we will all fall down
The beating heart is the only sound
Close our eyes as we hit the ground
And wake up blinded
[x2]

    General CommentI love this song. It makes me so sad everytime I hear it. Because it is soooo truthful.

    "are we living just to die
    or are we just dying to live" ---I ask myself that ALL the time.

    And the chorus is AMAZING. It's so true we just live our lives, hardly thinking. And before you know it you've lived half your life and your blinded of where it's all gone.

    Spitalfield will always be number 1 in my mind

    General Commentthe day after independance day
    theres no laughter
    and nothing left to say
    we all fall back
    to our patterned lives
    our hearts turn black
    pursue the dollar signs

    either way we will all fall down
    the beating clock is the only sound
    close our eyes as we hit the ground
    and wake up blinded
    [x2]

    we're all burnt out
    from working overtime
    from eating pills that
    control our state of mind
    we drink ourselves asleep
    just to forget the day
    Then medicate again
    just to stay awake

    are we living just to die
    or are we just dying to live?

    either way we will all fall down
    the beating clock is the only sound
    close our eyes as we hit the ground
    and wake up blinded
    [x2]
