"Waterfront Dance Club" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
Scarred open wounds
The needle, it dances and glows through the skin
Under lights that burn so bright
'Round the roads we see at night

The light has faded through the windows
The light has faded through the windows

Destroy to destroy landscapes
People you know, people you don't
Wards of empty patients
Just to sleep away the days

The light has faded through the windows
The light has faded through the windows

Last call on the waterfront
As the kids all stare into thin air
Last call on the waterfront
As the kids all stare into thin air

You wait for your breath to come
Your breath to come
Your breath to come
Your breath to come

The fantasy of reality
Goes rushing through your head
Just a symphony of a restless dream
Down to your fingertips

Last call on the waterfront
As the kids all stare into thin air
Last call on the waterfront
As the kids all stare into thin air

You wait for your breath to come

    This song is all about how the world is so rotten, and we are indeed destroying it from the inside.
    I love the methaphors that matt constructs within the lyrics, great structure, great melodies.
    FFAF rocks!!

    General CommentI dont really get the meaning of this song, but i can say it does sound really good I hope the new cd is as good or better than all of their previous work.
    just to point out the next line rocks:

    "the fantasy of reality goes rushing through your head just a symphony of a restless dream down to your fingertips"

    General CommentThis song makes me envision an abandoned warehouse of some sort at a waterfront yard, that houses teenagers who go there to socialise, party and get off on drugs. The person has injected heroin or something illict into their system with a syringe as described in the song, half the people that's there, they don't even know.

    "last call on the waterfront as the kids all stare
    into thin air, you wait for your breath to come"
    Worst of all they could be overdosing on a drug, but everyone around them is to consumed in their own thing to notice or care.

    On a bigger picture, the song is suggesting how some of today's youth are being pulled into this sort of world of drugs and partying and not giving a crap about the world itself, maybe due to some of the pressures that life throws at us such as poverty, broken families, abuse etc.

    General CommentIt's about a life long addiction and feeling so attatched to it that you feel you won't be the same without it.
