"Pens and Needles" as written by Eron Bucciarelli-tieger, Micah Carli, James Ii Woodruff, Matthew Ridenour and Casey Calvert....
I miss you most on winter mornings
As we drift we slip through evenings, whoa-oh
We drive into the cold and dark with fingers crossed
I follow your lies to avoid from getting lost

And all I had was the memory of what was
So let's pretend it never mattered to us
I hope this message finds you well
I never thought I'd live to tell

Just to survive we do what we can
We read the maps and signs, and we make the plans
By our design I write it down to get me by
The worst time in my life

And all I had was the memory of what was
So lets pretend it never mattered to us
I hope this message finds you well
I never thought I'd live to tell
What's a dream and what is real, the way I really feel

I hope this message finds you well
I never thought I'd live to tell
What's a dream and what is real?
So let's pretend this is the ending (ending...ending)
To the message I've been sending (sending...sending)

And all I had was the memory of what was
So lets pretend it never mattered to us
I hope this message finds you well
I never thought I'd live to tell
What's a dream and what is real, the way I really feel

    General CommentIt's a pretty easy song. He was wild about this girl, it didn't end so well, an despite the fact he still misses her he still wishes it never happened. Just to save face. Solid beat, catchy

    General CommentYea...song is about a false relationship that did not work out, "I follow your lies to avoid from getting lost." This song sounds like it might have come from Silence In Black of White--which is awesome. Very nice guitar riffs and awesome screams at the end.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song on the CD...it's just great all around.

    I agree with pla7 about the fear of vans. Someone close to them died in a van or something like that.

    General Commentpla7 definitly is right when they said "actually this song is about driving in fear and all the close calls they have while driving in their van in the snow."

    i read that in an interview they did

    whats wierd is how bayside's van would crash and kill 1 band member- it was so wierd when i first heard this song- its kind of saying what would happen in the future in real life
