Too late tonight, I'm gone and your miles ahead and I'm lost.
Throughout this darkened scene, clear skies are what I need. [x2]

The light resides in lines, offset in different times.
And I'm blinded by a sea of this strange memory.

Frames change and I'm still lost.
scene stills lay still in this fog, and I try only to see straight through into you.

Your eyes become so bare, an eager and empty stare.
And I'm blinded by a sea of this strange memory.
And I am...and I see.. it's just me.

And I drift quietly through the trees.
My mind separates from my body.

Days late, I'm not around now.. I don't care.
Dreams escape all my thoughts. Awake.
I dream of a fate I cannot escape, now it's too late.
Time dies in straight lines. Waiting, I can't take anything,
You try to believe everything, but I can't, but I can't

Too late tonight, I'm gone [x4]

    General CommentYou're a douchebag also. Moneen's covers of Alexis were done way better than the Alexisonfire covers. Accidents was a million times better done by Moneen. Same with Sharks and Danger. It's easier to take a song and play it heavier. It's harder to take a screaming song and sing it out. Kudos to the Moneen boys.

    General CommentI think both bands did it well. I think Alexisonfire is more advanced than moneen in musical expertise, but Moneen is obviously willing to take things further and experiment with sound. Thats a talent thats much appreciated on this front. Two amazing bands, and one amazing cover.

    General Commentrenegade, what are you, like eight years old and just discovering curse words? you really gotta just take a quick chill and stop making fun of everyone, its a terrible way to make friends. Anyways, even harder then taking a screaming song and making it soft, would be taking a shitty song and making it good, which is exactly what Alexis did here.

    General CommentThis is, imo, the best cover on the moneen/alexisonfire split. Perhaps because it's not one of my favorite moneen songs, alexisonfire really made it significantly better. The passing of america is one of my favorite songs ever, and it would have been impossible for these guys to do it any better.

    General Commentseriously renegade, come on...

    moneens cover of accidents was god awful. The thing that makes Accidents an excellent song is the passion, speed and energy behind it. All Moneen did was slow it down and sang the bits that originally screamed....which completely fucked it up...and AoF's versions of the Moneen songs were so much better. They put some fucking balls behind the song and actually sounded like they cared. This song is actually good thanks to Alexisonfire.
