"Set The Sails, Red Beret" as written by and Ryan Alan/kamerman Dunson....
Did they count you out?
We're lost within.
The feelings that you get when you're awake.
Staring at ceilings once again.
With open eyes, your bandages will heal.
Nothing but your ponytail stories to tell.
Two for one drinks
Tonight I'm meeting everyone there.
Just keep on crawling away.
Keep crawling away.

Did they set those sails for shore?
No they didn't.
Stop.
Don't stop.
With the ones who set their lives around fashion rules.
Stop.
Don't stop.

I didn't seem to mind.
That was during my Orlando chapter of mine.
You want it all but it's already over.
You want to leave but there's just no getaway.

Did they set those sails for shore?
No they didn't.

Was there something I could do?
We had things to get us through.
Was there something that, something you don't know?
We had plans to go out west.
With our futures at our best.
Was there something that, something you didn't show?
So let's make the plans tonight.
Let's make everything alright.
And let's part our ways to figure out what we've become.
What we are.
Set those sails tonight.

    Set the Sails, Red Beret - This song is a personal song to me... I used to be a alcohalic... and its about my struggle with Alcohal... im 4 months sober!!! yayayayayayay!! so thats good news... Some of my docters said that could of been why i have been sick for awhile... for those that dont know... i have been sick for about 5 months... but im slowly getting better... "Did they set those sails for show, no they didnt!" kinda like saying i never would hit shore to stop the problem... if you read the lyrics you can relate to the drinking terms.. I was also asked to leave Farewell to Fashion because my drinking got so bad but i had already made my mind up about leaving anyways.. and the end of the song.. is kinda explaining that... "we had plans to get out west, with the future at our best" that was talking about a tour Farewell to Fashion had with My hotel year that i couldnt do because i left.. "so lets make the plans tonight, lets make everything alright, and part are ways to figure what we become" just kinda saying LATER IM OUT!
    Im kinda glad i left Farewell.... becuase rookie would not be where it is today... everything is done for a reason. Also big thanks to Thin Dark Line that came in and did the group vocals on this song!! there great people!
