"So Strange I Remember You (Bootleg from PNC Arts Center)" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
So Strange I Remember You in protest of a prayer,
And falling back from seas we fear to sail
I swear I saw the shooter, gold deep and double dare,
Postmortem warnings seem inclined to fail,

Feigning an apology.
Those words they never left your lips,
Those 5 years in Bermuda slide by like the lights of passing ships,
So Strange that I Remember You,
Kneeling deep in Nietzsche's lies
My throat was an open grave I drank your stained glass eyes

And they taste like dead cathedrals
That are crumbling beneath a weight ten thousand jaded tourists
Who've traded in their hearts and hands for
Disposable cameras, set to document to decay
Set to capture just enough of life to catalog the things we throw away

(breathing the fumes of our machines)
We've lost our way-Dustin sings
(breathing through television dreams)

If we could only see us now
If we could only see us now

The words of the dead ring in our ears
But its only a lie
The voice in your head brings you to tears
But you don't know why
The words of the dead ring in our ears
But its only a lie
The voice in your head brings you to tears
But its only a lie,
Yes its only a lie, isn't it?

    General Commentwow, rarely can a band redo a song and have it be so reminiscient of the orginial, yet different enough to hold your attention. This ver. is just as great as the original, i'd put it up on a level with Incubus' remake of a Certain Shade of Green into a funk version, which i also highly recommend, this CD overall is pretty kick ass, the live versions of thier songs i think add a new dimension to the lyrics, he sounds a little more personally attached to them

    General CommentThis version of the song compliments the lyrics MUCH better. The lyrics themselves are a true work of art, but things in this version like the organ bring the image of the 'dead cathedrals' into mind. I still never really figured out what the like about "five years in Bermuda" meant.
