While Kansas City sleeps
I'm cloaked in the twilight of this valley
Baptist churches lined with roadside poetry
I could drive into the most desolate seclusions
My blackest secrets still imprison me
And why don't we say what we really feel

Whenever things are at their best
Whatever lies will help you rest
Whenever things are at their best
Why do we wait for them fall apart?
Fall apart

I wake up to the aftertaste of cheap wine and bad decisions
My heart trembles in this morning glare
I could shield my eyes from these innermost seductions
But still somehow you will find me there
Why don't we say what we really feel

Whenever things are at their best
Whatever lies will help you rest
Whenever things are at their best
Why do we wait for them fall apart?

And it's probably safe to say
I'm not the worlds safest bet
I've never been too good at being good
And it's probably safe to say

Whenever things are at their best
Whatever lies will help you rest
Whenever things are at their best
Why do we wait for them fall apart?
Whenever things, whenever things
Whenever things are at their best
Why do we wait for them fall apart?

    General CommentI love this song. It's amazing how different Welcome The Night is different than any other Ataris album. The sound of it is something that I really like. If i could find a leaked version of this song....

    General CommentI'm somewhat hesitant to just post a link to the album on here, but if you can use bittorrent or IRC it is up there. I guess it depends on if you feel like waiting for a mastered version.
