I want you on my side
To take the hard shots with me
You make it easy to decide
Showed all your feathers to me

There's a trail that ends tonight
Within the walls of this living room
All of my thoughts that weren't so right
No longer threaten or bother me

Like two strays in a terminal
Floating cinders in the sky
Drifting leaves while stoned aside
This is the race we’re meant to run

    General Commentthis song (track 7) is actually titled "Deluca" - the tracks are incorrectly listed when you burn the CD, as the instrumentals are all supposed to be the untitled tracks. "Mieke" is the following track (8), which begins with the line "We broke our face and we had to try" (?) and then leads into "The Shins" (9).

    General CommentIn addition to what guitarroman1 said about Mieke, I have a different version of Deluca (on a split as Flake with Henry's Dress). Deluca is definitely track 6. I think the correct order is:
    01. Spanway Hits
    02. Blast Valve
    03. Roziere
    04. Structo
    05.
    06. Deluca
    07. Mieke
    08.
    09. The Shins
    10.
    11. Vantage

    General CommentI accidentally added this as a reply to the previous comment. Oh well, here I go again.

    This is what I hear:

    I want you on my side
    To take the hard shots with me.
    You make it easy to decide.
    You show all your feathers to me.

    There's a trail that ends tonight
    Within the walls of this living room.
    All of my thoughts that weren't so right
    Blow and thunder loudly.

    Like two strays in a terminal
    Floating ciders in the sky
    Drifting leaves while stoned aside.
    This is the race we're meant to run.
