Wake the sun, so the stars can shine above what we define...
(Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait! )
Can you still see, what you first saw in me?
Or are the words caught up in your teeth?
(Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait! )

Staring at your glass smile,
The one you know that we are just dying to see.
Cut apart the words, forgetting everything, forever contradicting..

    General CommentLude was yelling at me.
    "You got a death wish Truant?"
    Which was the thing that scared me.
    'Cause maybe I did.

    great book, great song.

    General CommentThis could be the best Fall of Troy song on Doppelganger. The backing screams sound a lot like the self titled, which unfortunatly isn't very often on the new lp.

    General CommentI still can't find Johnny Truant in this. Was it something that Gnask Man asked him?

    General CommentJohnny Truant? Is this a House of Leaves reference or is there another Johnny Truant I'm not familiar with?

    General Commenti was thinking exact same thing, that it's a House of Leaves reference. and i think it is because "you got a deathwish.." is pretty much a direct quote. and is Hol[]y Tape a House of Leaves reference as well?

    General CommentI think Johnny's friend (can't remember the name) says "You got a deathwish Truant?" to him. But yes this and The Hol[ ]y Tape are HoL references. But as far as I can tell neither of the songs are about the book.

    General CommentYeah it seems like TFOT are pretty big House of Leaves fans. I think I read in an interview somewhere that Doppelganger was a concept album? I have no fucking clue what the concept is. All I can decipher is

    Glass smile= See through smile= bullshit smile.

    General Commentcould this be the band making an irrelevant comment about them not approving the band "johnny truant" for encompassing HOL when they are are a shitty band and dont compare to Falloftroy, and dont do justice to the book HOL?
