"To A Bond" as written by and Thorburn....
to a bond
underneath a bridge between two trees
both blowing leaves
into that great ravine
you came swimming with me
I like how you swim
you do it with eas
then an oar came down
struck the water
bad luck struck us down
bruised, removed you
brought you to shore
before they came for you
then I watched you dissapear
dripping bloodstained footsteps smear
don't let the bleeding stop
it's everything you got
in a body
undergoing night surgery, enemy
wants to cut into me
I escaped in the nick of time,
centipede
floats by on a leaf
I like how it floats
it does it with ease
saw you on the ledge
talked you down
talked your ear off, then
we walked around
'till you had to leave
to catch a train
at 10
gone around the bend
but bound like chinese feet
don't go unravelling
travelling into the blue
returned to look for you
couldn't say goodbye
the porchlight in my heart
had gone out in the dark
and flies
had gone out in the dark
like flies
gone out in the dark

    General Commentthen I watched you dissapear
    dripping bloodstained footsteps smear
    don't let the bleeding stop
    it's everything you got

    this part almost made me cry the first time i heard it. don't let the bleeding stop/it's everything you got, that is so passionate. i don't know, it just gets me every time.

    General Commentman I love this song. My favorite part in this song is

    I escaped in the nick of time,
    centipede
    floats by on a leaf
    I like how it floats
    it does it with ease

    that part is so awesome when you have this song blaring. I love islands. I can listen to arm's way forever and not get sick of it

    General Commenti agree i listen to all of arm's way blaring loud.

    my favorite parts are 'i like how you swim, you do it with eeaase' and

    the porchlight in my heart
    had gone out in the dark
    and flies

    like flies
    gone out in the dark

    General CommentI think this song is about being separated from someone you admire by circumstances you couldn't control. A Nick/J'aime story?
