You can throw away your expectations now
And all the things you wouldn't say out loud
Theres nothing left to pick apart now
The cards are all down
And now you know the sound of my heart
When it hits the paper
Theres no more mystery here
This is the last song

I remember when we first became a band
We'd drive all night and talk about the world
I remember when we used to now and then just sit and wonder
Where it all would go

This is the last song (the last song)
So everybody sing along
This is the last song
[x2]

You can throw away your expectations now
And all the things you wouldn't say out loud
Theres nothing left to pick apart now
The cards are all down
And now you know the sound of my heart
When it hits the paper
Theres no more mystery here
This is the last song

I remember when we first became a band
We'd set up in the bedroom
Practice all night long
I remember when we used to now and then
Keep the neigborhood up from the sound of our guitars
I remember when we'd all hop in the van
Turn the radio on,
We were off to see the world
Wake up at 10 to do it all again
Till the sun goes down cause this is all we know

This is the last song (the last song)
So everybody sing along
This is the last song
[x2]

I remember when we first became a band
We'd drive all night and talk about the world
I remember when we used to now and then just sit and wonder
Where it all would go

This is the last song (the last song)
So everybody sing along
This is the last song
[x2]

    General CommentI think we're good....:
    "I wrote this song at the very end of the writing process, I was so beat, and remember just feeling very emotionally/mentally drained. It was intended to be more of a sarcastic “ok, here it is, it’s done. There you go, critique it, love it or hate it, it’s all out on the table.” It’s funny, as an artist, you sometimes feel like people are waiting in the helms for the record to release, so they can cut it up, tear it apart, give their quick effortless 2 cents, and most of the time miss the point of what you were trying to say anyway. Haha, I know that sounds a tad negative, or perhaps a little dramatic, but believe me it often feels that way. So after all, it ended up turning into a song. When we all first started this, there wasn’t anyone (outside of a few friends here and there), constantly trying to compare, dissect, or look for flaws/faults in what we did. It was (as it is now) an honest form of artistic expression, with just way less pressure/responsibility for the results. I love music, I love what we do, and these things are all just a part of the growing process and privilege it is to write/play music for a living. I accept that, and am thankful for everyone who still loves music for music." - Trevor McNevan

    General CommentJust so everyone knows: TFK is coming out with a new album, "Welcome to the Masquerade," on September 8, 2009. Two new singles, "Bring Me To Life" and "Fire It Up," have already been released.

    General CommentI have a sneaking suspicion that this song is the last song. This is their goodbye to the music business, and telling the world that this will be their last album. Hopefully not, but it's what it sounds like to me.

    General CommentI hope not either, but it certainly sounds like it could well be their last song. Just reading the lyrics, its hard to say that it wont be.

    "Theres no more mystery here
    This is the last song"

    General CommentI am hoping that it just means it is the last song on the CD, and that "Theres no more mystery here" is just because it is a hidden track.

    General CommentI can say its the last thousand foot krutch song and that we get an fm static record next summer, so its a good thing I guess

    I remember when we first became a band
    We'd set up in the bedroom
    Practice all night long

    Trevor says that he is not finished with music, but with the band, thousand foot krutch, so there will be an album put out by fm static I think.

    General CommentI think tfk's ministry is awsome and they've definitely gotten bigger and better since 2000, (of cours there's always room for improvement) I dearly hope this is not the last song, I haven't gotten to see the new songs live yet so I hope to theonethatis at Creation fest next year.

    General CommentIt never occurred to me that it could be their last song as a band. When I first heard it, I initially thought he was just throwing it out their for people who critique. It just seemed like Trevor's way of chillin after producing one more EXCELLENT album :) I thought it was more sarcastic and funny than anything.

    We're so quick to NEEDING to know the meaning of something. We can't take anything for its face value nowadays because there always has to be an underly ing message for us. Just Trevor thinking outloud for us.... :D
