"Dr. L'ling" as written by and Snider Knudson....
This is a sauna, Western Atlantic coast
With no place to be, just takin' to the sea
Tonight with a constant buzz
Staring at the ocean crashing on
All the rocks below in this foreign home

(CHORUS):
This soft story
When we're gone, I feel I'll never miss anyone
And you lay in the grass along the edge

Is this a dream
You ask and I don't say anything
'Cause this may be a dream
And we come to this place
Like two convicts that have escaped
From the prison of every day
And for the moment we'll have our say

(CHORUS)

You know that tomorrow comes like disease to us
You know that tomorrow comes

From this cliff's edge
The gulls fly below us
Diving into the sea below us
And I'm not cold tonight
Beside you, beside you
And we're not cold tonight

This soft story
When we're gone, I feel I'll never miss anyone
This soft story
Ex-patriot, you're comin' home

    General CommentI didn't really like this song the first time I heard the album but it grew on me and now I very much love every song on Planet of Ice.

    General Commentthere's a missing section after the awesomely long guitar part in the middle where i'm just speculating what is said and the "touch me sweet" part was sorta off.

    can you get enough
    is there enough
    can you get enough
    is there enough
    can you get enough
    found out your escape route

    can you get enough
    is there ever enough
    found out your escape route

    touch me sweet
    forget the rest
    hooks feel so nice
    dug in my chest

    touch me sweet
    touch me sweet


    that's what i hear anyway.
