Is this what becomes of us?
when all the lines are cut
Conversations lay in ruins
and all the doors are shut

An empty verse
a turn of phrase is all that I can say
You don't hear me
You don't hear me anyway

It's not time
to say goodnight
What's on your mind?
You're outta sight

Oh can't you see?
We've been livin' past our means
All these hope-filled hours
and nothing in between
So take these broken ends
nine decades scattered
among disconnected friends
and see what you can do

It's not time
to say goodnight
What's on your mind?
You're outta sight

    General CommentAh, man. This song is fantastic. I saw these guys open for Tokyo Polic Club in Kingston, Ontario back in January... Amazing live energy. They finished with this song, and it's stuck with me since that moment, and is by far my favourite from this wonderful band.
