"A" as written by and Pugh/pepper/roberts/sanders/hudson....
And you can take this however you want
Yeah you can take this however you want
Don't be so so sure this is all it adds up to, you
You're justified
But there's no justice if it's just a lie
No, go and find yourself
You will if you look inside
And I'll never know
And you never will
Still I'll never know
And you won't find out
Until someone stands out
Then you'll get some answers
We know there's an answer
We know now that we have to find it by ourselves

And you can take this however you want
Yeah you can take this however you want
Just don't waste your breath unless you can save us
And tell me can you
Can you save us?
Can you save?
Can you save us?
This can't go on without the meaning in the rhyme
Can you save?
Can you save us?
I can't go on
Out of rhythm with our time

Our days were numbered by nights on too many rooftops
They said were wasting our lives
Oh at least we know that if we died
We lived with passion
They said we burned so bright

We run and we run
We know there's an answer
We know by going home we can find it by ourselves

When want you want is what you're getting
(they're catching onto us)
When all you can do is hide
(don't be afraid)

Oh maybe you can save us
When all we can do is hide

Oh
(we know there's an answer, we know by going home we can find it by ourselves)

    General CommentThis is such a beautifully orchestrated song. The way he pulls the whole album together with this single song is amazing.

    General Commentgod. i seriously just want to sit down and watch Will Pugh (lead singer) sing this one. The vocals are AMAZING with a capital EVERYTHING. I love his little "whoa" sounds and stuff after "They said we'd burn so bright, bright" and then after "When what you want is what your getting" those are my two favorite parts. Love cartel, love this song for all its worth. They do deserve to make it big.

    General Commenti like the medley concept with this song. its between this and write this down for my fav cartel song. but this song just means a lot to me because it encapsulates the best times of my life pretty much thus far. each progression from part to part brings up memories and it is just a song i can listen to nonstop and get goosebumps every time. another job well done by the boys of cartel

    General Commentlove the songgg
    the way it blends all the songs off of the album together is amazing. but of course, anything by cartel is good enough for me. i usually listen to this song when im really frusterated or confused and it always helps me find my inner peace

    cartel makes my day

    General Commenti love the creativity in this song how they blend together, but also how the whole album, and the last three songs especially tend to blend together so seemlessly! this song is one of my favorites, and it reminds me how there still are some true artists in the music scene today. i'm way excited for their new album, and what they're doing to record it is way impressive. if you haven't heard already, check out all the details at drpepperbubble.com

    General Comment"We know there's an answer, we know but we had to find it by ourselves"

    That's a reference to a song from 'Pet Sounds' by The Beach Boys. That's a sweet un-beach-boys-like album. It's just as emotional as this album.

    General Commenti love this song but the kids in the background at the end are a little creepy.
